TEXAS HILL COUNTRY April 6th-12th, 2013

Sign up early to get a spot. Low cost trip price of $40 per person does not include accommodations. (If budget is no problem consider the Adventure Cycling Hill country tour during the same time frame for $1099.) The main location for camping will be at the Lady Bird Municipal Park, with tent camping at about $10 per night and RV camping at roughly $30/night. There are a number of B&Bs and motels nearby in Fredericksburg. There will be 6 days of riding with an optional 7th day for more riding or sightseeing.

We will be staying near the Historic German town of Fredericksburg, right in the middle of the Texas Hill Country. This is the spring flower season with the Blue Bonnets in bloom as well as other wild flowers. Rides will be approx. 20-40 miles in length (with longer op- tions). Expect some hills, some new routes and fewer Bugs (VW type)! Fredericksburg offers unique German cuisine as well as local Tex-Mex, local wineries and brewpubs. Shoppers will find over 150 boutiques, art galleries and antique empo- riums, not to mention an herb farm, wildflower farm, and National Museum of the Pacific War. Rides will be loop types with different start/stop locations, and will highlight the local history, scenery,

LBJ Ranch, Stonehenge II, wineries and more.

You must set up your own reservations for RVs, Motels, and B&Bs.Tenters do not need to make reservations at the Lady Bird Park.
