What to Bring
March in the Hill Country is perfect cycling weather. March days are typically mild, warming and by the end of the month the Bluebonnets and Indian Paint Brush are blooming. Mornings can be foggy. The fog burns off giving way to bright sunny days. While sunny days are the norm, it’s not unusual to experience a rainy day in a week of cycling. So, be prepared for wide ranging conditions.
Always remember your normal cycling gear (shorts, jersey, socks, shoes, gloves and helmet). And, while the weather is normally very nice, it’s always a good idea to come prepared for cooler weather and/or rain (base layer, vest and/or jacket, knee warmers).
Sunglasses, sunscreen, lip balm, cellphone, water bottle(s), pump (or CO2 cartridge), patches, tire levers, spare tube(s), basic bike tools.
