Ferdericksburg Texas Week

We loaded up the Mini Cooper with our two S&S-coupled Surly Cross-Checks and headed down to Fredericksburg, Texas with some friends. DAy 1 we drove to Oklahoma City (800 Miles) and day 2 we drove to Fredericksburg (475 miles).

On our first day we pedaled 45 miles, deliberately heading south first becuase there was a 20-25 mph headwind. We rolled through Fred on some of its residential streets, then headed south on Old San Antonio ROad to the Bat Cave. At that location the Alamo Springs Cafe is located (closed on Tuesday). We split a vegetarian sandwhich and a Spinach Quesadilla.. and I had a Shiner Blonde.

After leaving there, we headed north on Old San Antonio Road where we enjoyed a tail wind. THen it was a right on Grapetown Road to Luckenbach, which was busy. There had to be 200 people there, and the band was playing out back. Every other time we've been here its been a weekday, and there were maybe 6 or 7 people there.

We left Luckenbach and pedaled north on Luckenbach Road, then North on Jung Road... still enjoying a tail wind. Then it was a left (West) on FM 1631 where we had a crross wind for the last 8 miles.

All told it was 45 miles. Weather was 79 degrees with mostly sunny skies. Pictures later... off to dinner.
