Road Trips

Start with a full tank and an empty bladder!

Periodically the club gets together to travel to a fun spot. Road trips can be a one-day event or a weekend or even a longer. All of the road trips have a theme such as the Tour de Fleur, the Fall Foliage Tour, the Bandit Run, or the Round Top Trip just to name a few.

The Tour de Fleur is an annual road trip to Fredericksburg, Texas over the Easter weekend. The Fall Foliage Trip is a trip through East Texas to enjoy the changing color of the forest which ends up with lunch somewhere. The Bandit Run is a fictitious run through the region chasing Pancho Villa in which we usually catch up with him at a restaurant…

Fun Fun Fun ’til her daddy takes the T-Bird away.  T-Bird!?  We don’t drive no stinkin’ T-Birds!

Ever think about riding in the MS150, but not on a bike? Join us for a fun run through the countryside west of Houston. We will run many of the same miles that the MS150 cyclists travel to Austin every year. Leaving AGAIN from Buc-ee’s (love those nice, clean bathrooms) in Katy, then winding our way thru Bellville, Winchester and Fayetteville.

We will end up at Neighbors Kitchen and Yard in Bastrop for a fun lunch on the banks of the Colorado River. Neighbors is a breath of fresh air, serving up quality scratch-made food, craft cocktails, and live tunes. If you want to hang around awhile after lunch, check out the hiking trail next to the Colorado, rent a bike or take a canoe or kayak tour.

If you’re not into the physical thing, stroll a couple of blocks away and enjoy Bastrop. It is a quaint and charming small town with fantastic places to eat, shop and play. Downtown boasts numerous art galleries, antiques and craft shops. For something out of the ordinary, check out Bastrop’s Historic Farm Street Chicken Sanctuary, where chickens roam the street protected from fast drivers (those nasty Mustangs) and anyone wishing to harm them.

Heading home and looking for something different, try the ride through Bastrop and Buescher State Parks. Not going to break any speed records, but some beautiful views, even in the wake of the devastating fires. There is a small drive-thru fee, but all for a good cause.

Come join us as we make another run through the country as we look for some new roads we have not been on before (or maybe we will just mix them up a bit) on our way to ‘the store’ in Kenney, TX. Last year we had a giraffe sighting, who knows what we will see this year.

The Kenney Store was a dry goods store in 1887 and is now a restaurant 16 miles south of Brenham, TX or 10 miles northwest of Bellville, TX. They have been in Texas Monthly Magazine and on the Texas Bucket List. They are known for their burgers, atmosphere, and live music at night.
