Beschreibung der Strecke

This ride basically follows the route provided by CycleTexas.com, except for the fact that I started and finished my ride at the Little Yellow House at the corner of South Milam and West Creek.

With frequent climbs of up to 14% it is aptly named. But in spite of the climbs, it is a wonderful ride with many scenic views of the Hill Country north of Fredericksburg/TX.

In the summer, be careful and take enough water as there is no way to fill up during the ride.

This ride basically follows the route provided by CycleTexas.com, except for the fact that I started and finished my ride at the Little Yellow House at the corner of South Milam and West Creek.

The route mostly avoids the well-travelled highways. It's really scenic, especially Jung Lane, and not too difficult, with gradients of up to around 9%, but all of them mercifully short.

The ride shown here avoids the steep climb in Cain City. To do do that climb, take a left on Broadway in Cain City.

Beschreibung der Strecke

Basically, this route follows the map provided by CycleTexas.com, with the exception that I started (and finished) at the Little Yellow House at the corner of South Milam and West Creek.

It's a wonderful short ride, very well suited to get accomodared to the Hill Country around Fredericksburg, as it doesn't have too many nor too steep climbs. According to my Garmin Edge 305, the maximum grade is about 8 - 9%.

Road conditions:

Highway 290 is well travelled and has no shoulder, but as it is a 4-lane highway, cars can (and do)  usually give bicyclists a wide berth.

Hayden Ranch Road is  wonderfully quiet.

 Ranch Road 2093 is the part I disliked most as it is a well travelled 2-lane road with practically no shoulder.

Beschreibung der Strecke

From Kenedy, follow HWY 72 to Pawnee. In Pawnee, take a left onto FM 798 and follow that road to Tulsita. In Tulsita, you can either take a left onto HWY 181 back to Kenedy, or - if you need a rest stop - take a right onto HWY 181 towards Pettus. In Pettus, take a left onto North St. and go to the high school for restrooms and water. Then backtrack to HWY 181 and take a right. Follow HWY 181 towards Kenedy to its intersection with FM 2509. Take a left onto 2509 [of course, yopu can also choose to stay on HWY 181, but that is very well travelled]. Follow FM 2509 [later HWY 181 business] into Kenedy.

Reststops - for water - are at the church in Pawnee and the high school in Pettus.
