About the Rides
McKinney Falls State Park
Meet at Cycleast at 6:30pm on your Friday night(s) of choice. Campers will roll out of town together to McKinney, led by an employee of Cycleast. The route we take is a paved 20-mile round trip that is great for beginners or those looking for leisurely bit of bike camping with friends new and old. Never been bike camping? This is the perfect introduction and we’d love to get you outfitted.
Buescher State Park
This is a paved-road, 100-mile round trip ride out to Buescher State Park just north of Smithville. The last 12 miles between Bastrop and Buescher state parks is a windy and hilly stretch of park road that you’ll love. We will be leaving Saturday AM, with more details to come.
Bastrop State Park
80-mile round trip of beautiful countryside on Cinco de Mayo! This one better involve some Mexican food or at least a stop at Buc-ee’s. We will be leaving Saturday AM, with more details to come.
Lockhart State Park
Look, let’s not beat around the bush. The main reason we ride bikes is to eat whatver we want without feeling too bad about it. Which is why it’s awfully convenient that we are rolling right through the center of Lockhart, arguably the BBQ capitol of Texas [edit: it has been brought to my attention that on May 26, 1999 House Resolution #1024 was adopted by the 76th Texas Legislature naming Lockhart the ‘Barbecue Capital of Texas’, then by the Sentate in the Fall of 2003. It’s pretty official.] This one is an 83-mile round trip on paved roads with just enough elevation to justify some extra banana pudding. We will be leaving Saturday AM, with more details to come.
