Tour Overview

Texas: The 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 bike tours and active vacations feature a region that’s one of the best-kept secrets in the US. 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 cycle to the legendary country music hamlet of Luckenbach. Our Texas bicycling trips are scheduled for peak wildflower season when stunning Texas Bluebonnets bloom, setting routes ablaze with their rich purple hue while 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 and classic Texas character. Partake in some of Texas’ most savory authentic BBQ while you sip upon locally produced wines during your stay for a true taste of Texas flavor. 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!

    One of the most popular rides in Texas Hill Country is the Willow City Loop — especially in wildflower season.
