(Formerly the Hill Country Hustle) This 200 +/- mile 50% dirt-road trip is a must for all ADV riders! Experience and discover beautiful back-roads the Texas Hill Country has to offer. The fun begins at 9:00 am in Fredericksburg, TX, (founded by German immigrants so there really is beer & bratwurst available) as we make our way on dirt and gravel roads, and through a few water crossings to Mason, TX. Once in Mason we will stop for a quick lunch break at Mason Burger. After recharging and exchanging stories and lies of our first half of the ride, we will then make our way West encountering Sandy Creek Rd. and other challenges South of Llano, TX. After adding more dirt and grime to our motorcycles, we will circle back and finish in Fredericksburg, TX around 6:00 pm with ice cold drinks and food.
The Texas Hill Country area is subject to severe thunderstorms and flash flooding. We reserve the right to alter or cancel a tour when weather make roads impassable or unsafe.
Are you new to the ADV world?
No problem! This day trip is just what the doctor ordered for you. Leave your worries behind and rest assured, together, as a team we help each other out. These roads change with the weather, and more specifically, with each significant rainfall. Mostly the journey will be on category 1 dirt and gravel roads with several water crossings and some category 2 sandy areas possible.
What should I bring?
We recommend a dual sport motorcycle with the ability to travel at speeds of 70/80 mph on the highway comfortably. I always encourage everyone to bring plenty of water. A camelbak works great. Having tools specific to your bike along with a tire repair kit is always a good idea. Also don't forget to bring your riding gear and your adventurous spirit.
These back-roads are our stomping grounds so all you have to do is focus on enjoying yourself and the surrounding scenery. Includes your Lunch, Dinner and Adventure Tejas t-shirt.
