Tour Overview

Lone Star Splendor, By Bicycle!

This is Texas as you never imagined – all things and more that the big, beautiful Lone Star State is famous for. Our Texas Hill Country bicycle tours feature a region that’s one of the best kept secrets in the USA. Miles of lightly traveled roads wind through gently rolling limestone hills and river valleys shaded by giant cypress trees. Limestone outcroppings are reminiscent of the Loire Valley or Provence, and might explain why the cultivation of wine grapes is increasingly popular here.

Tour historic and beautiful LBJ Ranch by bike, and ride to the legendary country music hamlet of Luckenbach. Tours are scheduled for peak wildflower season when stunning Texas Bluebonnets and many other colorful flowers bloom. The trip is centered around a four-night stay in the cowboy chic town of Fredericksburg at a lovely inn that defines rustic elegance. Don’t let the “Hill Country” reference scare you away – keep in mind that most of this vast state is pretty darn flat. The cycling terrain is mostly rolling with plenty of options for weekend warriors!

What's Included In This Tour

  • Ride the Mission Trail, one of the top bike paths in the US.
  • Visit Luckenbach, the famed country music venue that's actually a whole town.
  • Tour LBJ Ranch by bicycle on a quiet one-way loop road.
  • Explore Fredericksburg's downtown, the heart of the Hill Country.
  • Hike to the top of Enchanted Rock, a giant treeless, granite dome.
  • Enjoy a true Texas barbeque at a local home.
