Road Bike Cycling in the Texas Hill Country
Eight cyclists wanted to explore Austin and road bike in the hill country outside of Austin and Fredericksburg. We rented high-end road bikes similar to their personal bikes, arranged for a custom-fit and practice ride of 20 miles to ensure the bikes were a perfect fit. The next day we rode 65 miles in the hill country outside of Austin and then moved to Frederickburg for five days of riding in the hill country for 55 – 65 miles per day. The TXBT guide for each ride was local to the area and high-speed experienced cyclist.
The routes included 65 miles outside of Austin ending at the Jester King Brewery. In Fredericksburg, routes included the Comfort Loop of 56 miles, Hill Top Cafe Loop of 50 miles, Enchanted Rock Loop of 50 miles, LBJ Ranch Loop of 56 miles, and Willow City Loop of 55 miles.
This group of friends take annual road cycling trips all over the world. Temecula, Solvang, Tucson, and Italy are a few trips they mentioned. They enjoyed the TXBT custom-routes designed with their cycling experience and comfort with cycling in mind, the SAG wagon that followed with the nutrition they enjoyed, and the camaraderie they developed with the local guides. The two guides in Austin and the two guides in Fredericksburg all agreed that this was a fun group to guide. The two lead cyclists in the group offered to be a reference for us. Their contact information will be provided upon request. One is with a technology company and the other is with a large law firm.
