Event: 10th Annual LBJ 100 Bicycle Tour
About the Ride: Join us for arguably the premier springtime cycling event in the scenic Texas Hill Country! Starting and ending on the air strip of the historic LBJ Ranch (now the LBJ National Historical Park), the routes of 10, 30, 42, and 62 miles traverse minimally-trafficked Farm-Market roads, as well as bucolic country lanes. There’s something for everyone!
Starting and ending on the famed LBJ Ranch, the routes take riders under majestic live oaks, past historical landmarks that figured prominently not only in the Johnson family history, but also in U.S. presidential history. See the descendants of President Johnson’s famed Hereford cattle herd as you exit the Ranch. Thereafter, it’s on to spectacular Hill Country cycling – on smooth-surfaced ranch-to-market roads and pastorial country lanes that will take you back in time. Visit rural, historic Gillespie County schools that do duty as rest stops on this scenic tour. This is truly a “Ride to Preserve History.”
Our 36th President loved his ranch. He often conducted presidential business under the spreading oak trees, and he sought solace here from the rigors of the presidency.
As President Johnson told visitors to his beloved Hill Country ranch, “All the world is welcome here!” We want riders in the LBJ 100 Bicycle Tour to feel the same warm welcome and sense of Presidential history as those who came before them.
