11th Annual LBJ 100 Bicycle Tour
Mar 24 2018 to Mar 24 2018
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 Texas Hill Country cycling – on smooth-surfaced ranch-to-market roads and pastoral 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 Texas 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. 10, 30, 42 and 62 mile routes available. For a special experience, at 2 pm Luci Johnson will share her family’s history while leading a bicycle tour of the LBJ Ranch.
9 am to 4:30 pm. Gates open at 7 am (meet at the airstrip) and close at 5 pm. $50 per rider; family rates available.
