The Hill Country of Texas is a fantastic late fall and early spring bike tour destination with scenic roads, great food and a special inn. The Hill Country sits atop the Edwards Plateau and in many ways is the geographic and cultural border between the U.S. Southwest and the South. The area is unique for its fusion of Spanish and German influences on food, beer, architecture and music that form a distinctively local “Texan” culture.
Our tour of the Texas Hill Country begins and ends in Austin, and we recommend you spend extra time there before or after the tour. Texas settlers clustered around the crystal-clear waterways of the Hill Country, and our trip highlights this history. You’ll unpack once and stay for five nights in Fredericksburg — allowing time to explore some of the best routes in the area, outstanding museums, great food and a hike on the largest pink granite dome in the U.S. Each day has some riding along the river valleys without too much climbing — and optional routes with additional miles. Spring trips showcase Texas bluebonnets or other wildflowers. And autumn trips bring fall colors and flowers — and a great location to extend your biking season. (Rooms with 2 beds are limited for this tour, but alternate lodging may be possible. Please contact our office for details.)
