The Fort Worth Bicycling Association invites you to the 43rd 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 $45. Quiet, well-paved roads, challenging terrain 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. 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 Houston Bicycle Club, Fort Worth Cycling Association and Bike Austin (which now includes the former Austin Cycling Association).
This year’s EHCT ride will have a few changes…
We have great routes for three days of riding in the beautiful Hill Country, but the support model has changed a bit;
- Friday and Saturday rides will be supported with rest stops and SAG vehicles, as before.
- Sunday’s ride will be unsupported (meaning no rest stops or SAG available.)
In recent years, there have been only a few riders on the Saturday century ride and it is costly to support. Therefore, the Saturday ride will not offer a century-ride option.
Decades ago Kerrville was a small community tucked into Hill Country with little to offer visitors for entertainment. Today, Kerrville is a vibrant community with much to offer in terms of food selections and activities for a Saturday night, so we will not offer a Saturday dinner/event for ride participants.
There will be an Easter Sunrise Service on the Schreiner University patio. For details, see the Schedule page.
