Short Description

We’ll let you in on a bit of a secret — Texas Hill Country is one of the best places in the country for scenic and peaceful bicycling. Miles of back roads wind through rolling limestone hills and river valleys lined with graceful cypress trees.

Tour historic and beautiful LBJ Ranch by bike. Cycle to the legendary country music hamlet of Luckenbach. Visit famous historic sites, including the Alamo, El Mercado, and La Villita. Ride the Mission Trail along bike paths leading to a series of Spanish missions established in the early to mid-18th Century. Partake in some of Texas’ most savory authentic BBQ and sip upon locally produced wines during your stay for a true taste of Texas flavor.

 Texas Hill Country Bike Tour MapOur Texas bicycling trips are scheduled for peak wildflower season when stunning Texas Bluebonnets bloom. The routes are 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.

Groups are between 25-60 people, typically ~30-40. Usually there will be many opportunities to split off and enjoy meals and excursions in smaller groups. This is the most economical way to travel, saving up to 40% versus booking the same itinerary yourself.

Itinerary

Day 1:

Explore San Antonio from your luxury hotel located in a quiet section of the River Walk. Join the group for a reception and dinner at Omni’s Wine Spectator award-winning restaurant.

Day 2:

Ride San Antonio’s Mission Trail, now considered one of the finest bike paths of its kind in the US. This paved trail follows a beautifully restored watershed and leads to several old Spanish missions.

Day 3:

Wind along back roads past fields of wildflowers, over small creeks and under the shade of live oak trees. Cross the beautiful Guadalupe River and continue to the tiny town of Luckenbach, Texas — made famous by its namesake song sung by Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson.

Day 4:

The most popular ride in Hill Country is Willow City Loop - especially in wildflower season. The route winds through canyons and open fields painted in rich purple hues of the Hill Country’s famed Texas Bluebonnets. Explore Fredericksburg’s historic downtown or visit the National Museum of the Pacific War.

Day 5:

The day is full of opportunities for cycling, hiking, and exploring the charming town of Fredericksburg. A ride through quiet ranchland is on tap for the morning. An afternoon hike on Enchanted Rock, a giant granite dome that punctuates the landscape, offers a unique perspective of the region.

Day 6:

Follow the Pedernales River to LBJ Ranch. This beautiful oasis continues to operate as a working ranch and is best appreciated by bicycle. Enjoy a self-guided tour through the expansive property which includes the Texas White House. This evening, enjoy a traditional Texas Barbeque.

Day 7:

Ride through open range along farm-to-market roads that are so lightly traveled they seem like bike paths. Visit the town of Comfort, whose impressive limestone buildings are on the National Register of Historic Places. Following lunch in town, we will transport you to the airport in San Antonio.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for being our professional cycling support company on Virgin Atlantic Airways/Virgin Pulse staff, family and friends adventure from Boston to New York. The Sojourn team partnered with us (Team Williams) to organize an amazing adventure that has raised over $25000 for charities including Free the Children (our charity partner). Your team has been absolutely fantastic at every turn and on a personal note, I truly appreciated you accommodating my request to ride with the group into lunch and at the finish line. Words can't describe what a brilliant job Sojourn have done.......THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH
