Routebeschrijving

Cycling fans of the X-Files will love Roswell, the start to this challenging section. It was here in 1947 that a UFO allegedly crashed, an event celebrated in the town’s quirky International UFO Museum. Keeping a close eye on the sky above the riders will head south to a rest day in Carlsbad where they can make a side trip out to the amazing Carlsbad Caverns, immense limestone caves far below the earth’s surface. The route continues into Texas with its immense landscapes, endless skies, eerie ghost towns and massive ranches. At Fort Davis, with its restored historic US Army fort, the route turns southeast and follows the Rio Grande to the border town of Del Rio for a well-earned rest day and, perhaps, a quick trip across the river to Mexico.

Re-energized by their day off, the riders head out away from the US/Mexico border, slowly climbing up into the fertile, green Texas Hill Country north of San Antonio. The route passes through Kerrville, home to the annual Texas State Arts and Crafts Fair, featuring artists and entertainers from around the state, and historic Fredericksburg where the riders can explore the sobering National Museum of the Pacific War, experience the city’s German heritage at the Pioneer Museum or simply sample some of the area’s fine wines. If you are lucky, you might even hear some of the local conjunto tunes, a mix of Tex-Mex and German accordion music. The final stages lead the cyclists along small rural roads to the state capital, Austin, known around the world for its music scene.
