Adventure Rider Breakfast Series - 2-day ride, 5/19-20/18 departing Backyard Bistro


A Texas Adventure Riders Association
San Antonio Chapter Event


Come to breakfast, meet and talk with other like minded individuals. Some will also go for a ride afterward, others ride home, get out on your bike and join us for either or both.



BACKYARD BISTRO
830-535-4094
167 Panther Ridge Rd
Pipe Creek, TX 78063-5195
www.backyardbistrobandera.com

Located directly behind Country Accents Antiques on Hwy 16 South.



Post Breakfast Ride Information
The Goldthwaite 499.7, 2-day overnight ride, starting 5/19/18 after the @ 9a Backyard Bistro TARA/SA breakfast on Saturday in Pipe Creek, overnighting in Goldthwaite, then a route back to near Bandera on Sunday, 5/20/18.

If anyone is up for a post breakfast ride see the optional route map below. Groups usually take off around 10am. The route is a no host self-guided GPS ride, as the ride is self-guided join a group or lead one.

The post Adventure Breakfast rides are all about fun, camaraderie and being safe. Some groups will focus on completing the route, others will just relax and ride to their cut off time then break off and head home.

A group size of 4 - 6 ride is optimal, with about a maximum of 8, grouping by bike size or desired pace is also beneficial if possible.

Rain date information will be posted on the Thursday before the ride if necessary.

Route information & Map
*Disclaimer - I build the routes on my computer using the Roads of Texas map book as my guide which is the best and most accurate I have used, but not perfect, and Furkot's mapping program. So the route may not be 100% accurate. I do not pre-ride the route, it's an adventure for me also. Road closures, legal status, conditions and routing of county roads can change. If in doubt, turn around and find another route - DO NOT trespass. If a landowner says you are on private property, don't argue, politely ask for directions to get back to a public road.

Can't make the start in Pipe Creek? Ride from wherever you are and meet up in Goldthwaite for Adventure Rider fellowship.

Lodging
Relax Inn
1230 US-84, Goldthwaite, TX 76844
(325) 648-2288

Camping
A very generous offer from Montejay "I've got a RV with a couple of beds and a place to pitch tents if needed."

Dinner
Peabody's Restaurant
1206 Fisher St, Goldthwaite, TX 76844
(325) 648-3708

Sunday Breakfast 730am
Peabody's Restaurant
1206 Fisher St, Goldthwaite, TX 76844
(325) 648-3708

Saturday's route - may include a super secret option


Sunday's route - includes a crossing of the Regency Bridge and a rare stop for lunch in a restaurant at Coopers Original Pit Bar-B-Q


For those that join my group
When I lead a group I don’t stop for lunch in a restaurant, I'm in the office all week so when I'm on a ride I want to spend as much time as possible in nature. I plan a stop about midway out in the country for snacks or a sandwich I bring with me, then of course there are the planned fuel stops.

I stop at every corner without a clear / obvious direction to continue and wait for the entire group and make sure the last rider sees the proper way to go, there is NEVER a need to ride above your comfort level to keep up, we won’t leave you, I encourage riders to spread out to avoid the dust. The daisy chain method also works well, especially when its extremely dusty to keep the group even more spread out, the rider in front makes sure the rider behind makes the corner and so on until the sweep rider makes the corner. As long as the rider in front takes responsibility for the rider behind no one gets lost. However please tell someone in the group if your plans change and you decide to break off from the group, that prevents you being searched for.

Safety and rider etiquette
Having your emergency contact information on you and having that information readily available is critical. This is important not just for group rides but everyday. Even though you may have a buddy along on the ride you may get separated on the road.
At minimum:
Name
Your street
Your town, state, Zip code
Driver's license # & state
Emergency contact
Emergency Phone
I taped mine on the bottom of the visor of my dual sport helmet, I also taped another on the back side of my fairing near the dash. The important thing is that it is easy for anyone to find.

Respect landowners and other road users, slow down and ride quietly when passing, people, vehicles, animals, homes, etc.

Re: Adventure Rider Breakfast Series - 2 day ride, 5/19-20/18 departing Backyard Bist

I'm changing this to a 2-day ride, overnighting in Goldthwaite.

Anyone have a lodging recommendation in Goldthwaite?

Also, camping?

Sander,
Glad to see you coming to Goldthwaite. We got a nice city park, but there is no camping allowed. The motel in town I would recommend is the Redbud Inn (325-648-3061).
Or you can camp at mine and Kory's place about 10 miles south off Hwy 183. Kory has to work that weekend. I was at Bend State Park last weekend, I think you have to call ahead and reserve, it's about 40 miles from Goldthwaite. San Saba's about 25 miles away, I believe there is some camping there.

Re: Adventure Rider Breakfast Series - 2 day ride, 5/19-20/18 departing Backyard Bist

Thanks Monte!

I'm excited to ride in the area, San Saba is the furthest north I've been on an adventure ride. Looking forward to seeing the Regency Bridge.

Thanks for the offer for campers!

I tried the Redbud but they're full, the clerk did say try back in case of cancellations. To be safe I made a reservation at Relax Inn.

Relax Inn
1230 US-84, Goldthwaite, TX 76844
(325) 648-2288

They are giving us a single rate of $45 and double $50, when mentioning the motorcycle ride rate.

Re: Adventure Rider Breakfast Series - 2 day ride, 5/19-20/18 departing Backyard Bist

The DQ is across from the Relax Inn, Peabody's (all types) is about 1 block south of the square, then there are two Mexican food places, one east side of square and one north side of town. The best burgers are at Cahoots at the Exxon station. If you want to drink a beer with your meal you will have to eat at one of the Mexican food places.
I've got a RV with a couple of beds and a place to pitch tents if needed.
I'll probably ride one leg, either coming or going.

Good info Brian,
When I called the Relax Inn last night and talked to the clerk I was asked how many rooms we would need, I guessed 5-10, she said that would be no problem. One room left could be the priceline allotment. I was surprised the Redbud was booked, no events that weekend that I see here - https://www.millscountychamber.com/events.html As always for those that are thinking about moteling it, book early.

Thanks Monte for the area advice!

This looks good for early take off breakfast, opens at 6am on Sunday according to Google maps.

Gotta love the superstar internet reviewers... Kayla outlaw says it is mediocre food and service with small town atmosphere. SOUNDS LIKE A GOOD ONE TO ME!

I believe all of them will be open Sunday morning.
Peabody's is in an old stone building that use to be a wool and mohair grading building.

So, I've got this on my calendar as a tentative. Sander, would you say this was a Strom route, or a DRZ route?

Like most hill country county road rides this is more adventure style than dual sport.

However, Saturday's route does include Sandy Creek and may include a super secret option, but the SSO will probably be out and back so those that don't want to do it don't have to.


Sunday has some water crossings around Doss but they shouldn't be too bad.

This is highest I've seen Threadgill Creek.

Thanks for the info, Sander. Turns out I'm working on Sunday, so I'll be riding the Strom and slabbing back from Goldwaithe on Saturday night. See you there.
