4th Annual LBJ 100 Bicycle Tour: A Ride to Preserve History

Come join us on Saturday, March 26, 2011, for one of the premier rides in the gorgeous Hill Country of Texas!

As President Johnson often told visitors to his beloved Hill Country ranch – All the World is Welcome Here“! We want riders in the 4th Annual LBJ 100 Bicycle Tour to feel the same warm welcome and sense of Presidential history as those who came before them.

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-market roads and quiet 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”.

After a 9:00 AM staggered start for the 10, 30, 42, and 62-mile routes, enjoy a post-ride meal, and hang with friends and fellow cyclists in the expansive food tent. Visit some of the adjacent vendor booths we’ll have located next to the food area.

Then, you’ll not want to miss the Luci Baines Johnson-led tour of the historical landmarks on the LBJ Ranch at 2:30 PM. This look at the Johnson family legacy is included in the main rider registration fee – or, you can register for this tour only. Cost is the same.  Hear presidential history from someone who lived it! Be sure to take a Ranger-led tour of the restored rooms in the Texas White House – also included for registered riders.

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.

      Hi Kathleen,
      Thanks for your good wishes. And yes, tghe countryside there is absolutely beautiful. And hopefully we’ll be lucky with the weather, too. Btw, I won’t be able to ride on the LBJ, as I’ll be helping, driving a SAG-car. But I intend to ride my bike on the Friday before and the Sunday after the official ride. And I’m really looking forward. And we’ll certainly have good times. Don’t you want to come and join the fun? There’s more than just bicycling there, cf. Sponsors & Vendors
      Best regards,

I' d really love to hear from y'alls!
