Enthusiastic cyclists founded the Hill Country Bicycle Touring Club because it was felt that a bicycle club was needed in the San Antonio area that had more emphasis on all levels of riding ability. Our rides are moderate, ranging in the 10 to 14 mph average. Most of our rides are leader- led, and we leave no one behind. Throughout the year we offer regular weekday rides in the morning and evenings (15-30 mile rides). Longer rides are offered on weekends (20-50 miles).
We are a very social club, and we have several picnics, parties and overnight events throughout the year. We also have weekend outings and tours.
