Limited Edition Jersey's - Order before February 26th and receive by ride day.
Bike Austin (now merged with the Austin Cycling Association) invites you to the 44th Annual Easter Hill Country Tour (EHCT). Experience the charm and hospitality of the Texas Hill Country and three days of the best riding Texas has to offer for as little as $50. Quiet, well-paved roads, fully-stocked rest stops and panoramic scenery have made the EHCT one of the premier cycling events in Texas with routes suitable for all categories of participants from novices to experienced riders.
Special note to newcomers and singles. Join around 1,000 other like-minded cyclists and see why the EHCT is an Easter weekend tradition. All rides are fully-supported with rest stops and SAG vehicles. You’ll enjoy a relaxed, friendly cycling experience and, like so many of us, will want to come back again and again.
Founded in 1974 by the Lubbock Bicycle Club, the EHCT is hosted in rotation by the San Antonio Wheelmen, Houston Bicycle Club, Fort Worth Cycling Association and Bike Austin (which now includes the former Austin Cycling Association). Bike Austin is a 501(c)(4) non-profit organization and part of your registration fee will go to supporting cycling access, safety and education in Central Texas.
Remember to share the road and be courtious to your fellow rider and announce when passing. Ride two abreast and single up when needed. Yell "Car Back" if there is a vehicle passing to inform your fellow riders.
If you need help please move off the road, remove your helmet and waive to a SAG or Motor medic to inform them you need help. A SAG driver will transport you to the nearest rest stop.
