Although winter living in the Northwest and Northeast has it advantages of skiing, sledding, skating and other winter sports; dreaming about the warmth of the Texas sun during March and April is a favorite pastime of mine. A favorite locale is the Hill Country of Texas. It offers a little bit of everything to the spring cyclist in training trying to escape the cold season up north.
The Hill Country of Texas is celebrated for its dazzling displays of spring wildflowers that grow so thickly they sometimes appear to be distant lakes on the horizon.
With cowboy names like Blanco, Luckenbach, and Johnson City, along with wildflowers, buffalo, ranches, quiet roads and warm weather, the Hill County of Texas is a cyclist's paradise.
Visits to German-style beer gardens and Texas BBQs round out the treats on this great slice of Texas.
