There will be 5 days of riding with an optional 6th day for more riding or sight seeing. 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 options). Expect some hills!! Fredericksburg offers unique German cuisine as well as local Tex-Mex, local wineries and brewpub. Shoppers will find over 150 boutiques, art galleries and antique emporiums, not to mention an herb farm, wildflower farm, and National Museum of the Pacific War.
