Schedule and Routes

Each day, there will be three routes offered, an A-route, B-route, and C-route. The routes will range in length as follows:  A-routes 60 through 100 miles, B-routes 50 through 80 miles, and C-routes 30 through 50 miles.  Participants may choose to ride any of the three daily offerings. There is no formal structure to the rides, but are meant to be social and fun. Participants ride at their own pace, and may choose to ride in a group or one their own. All rides are self-supported, though there are numerous convenience stores or other locations on each route, where riders may get water and supplies. SAG support will be available only in case of emergency.

Note: There will be a short meeting before every ride to discuss route notes, safety and anything else that might be relevant to that ride. Routes may change from time-to-time due to weather, road conditions, etc. 


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).


Additional items:

Sunglasses, sunscreen, lip balm, cellphone, water bottle(s), pump (or CO2 cartridge), patches, tire levers, spare tube(s), basic bike tools.
