#SD2KW, Day 31, Kerrville to Johnson City, 77 miles | Aptly Named

Riding Stats


Route Tracker

Made it to 7:45 Mass on time with room to spare for some coffee! We packed up in the dark and jumped on The Riverside Trail cycling it four miles into Kerrville. There must have been 15-20 deer grazing along the trail. What an asset to the city of Kerrville, the trail… not the deer necessarily. 😉

The route took us quickly out for a morning spin on a one lane, winding ranch road. It was scenic, quiet and the perfect way to kick off a Sunday morning ride while thinking about the homily, the liturgical music and how grateful we are for faith, family, friends and of course each other.

Hill Country is aptly named as there are well… wait for it… HILLS. It’s a lot of fun to see if we can peddle down fast enough to get up the next hill without much effort. It usually doesn’t work but it’s fun trying. These aren’t just little bumps; they have some meat to them and they are a lot of fun!

Shout out to our daughter Anne who scored a night at a Marriott property in Austin tomorrow night (at a friends and family discount). We love our tent, our cabin stays and little motel rooms but we really love it when we can indulge ourselves in luxury. Thank you Anne!

Chicken and tuna wraps for din din, a large bag of Lay’s chips, and a beef and cheese stick. Tomorrow we feast!

Every night includes a route rap for the following day. Tonight’s no different.

  1. Your videos are just outstanding! Love the photos and always super soundtrack selection ( Is that Lucas?) good choice.

    If they would complete a coast to coast trail like the one you started on this morning I’d consider a ride. For now, I have to stick to my van on those old US routes however. Knowing you two has made me much more cautious when on turns or hills.

    I did some rough calculations and I’m sensing you are nearing halfway? Next trip I’m buying the map set to follow along. Enjoy the luxury hotel.

    1. Wow! How did you know Lukas? So impressed.
      Sounds like Willie to me. Not sure if we are half way yet. Seems like we got off to a REALLY slow start with the detour. But we might be halfway! Loving Texas… big state, big wind and big hearts! ❤️🤍💙 And btw the bike trail was 💯

      Thank you for being cautious on the road. It’s pretty scary on some of these roads.


    1. Oh man when we first started this ride we considered trying to get to NOLO by Mardi Gras. There have been so many twist and turns. What were we thinking? We will get there when we get there. 😊


  2. So happy you made it to church and could ponder eternal principles while riding. We have such good memories of the same thing. We are blessed way more than we deserve.
