TRIP DESCRIPTION

If you’ve been led to believe that all of the Lone Star State is pancake flat, this weeklong bike tour through the rolling Texas Hill Country will dash away that notion. This cycling adventure begins and ends in Austin, the Live Music Capital of the World, and long-time training ground of a certain multi-time Tour de France champion.

We’ll make our way on quiet farm and ranch roads through this region of Texas celebrated for its dazzling displays of spring wildflowers — most notably bluebonnets — which grow so thick they sometimes appear to be distant lakes on the horizon. We’ll visit historic settlements including Blanco, Luckenbach, Fredericksburg, and Johnson City, and parallel crystal-clear streams, surmount oak-covered hills, and camp beside rivers with names that evoke the old Southwest (e.g., Guadalupe and Pedernales). Along the way, German-style biergartens, Texas barbecue, and Tex-Mex specialties will tempt our taste buds. And, we’ll surely succumb to that temptation on a regular basis on this, one of our most popular trips.
