II Medina County 250 Adventure Motorcycle Ride - Saturday, 1/14/17-Castroville, Texas



What?
A 250-mile adventure motorcycle ride entirely in Medina County Texas.[/url]
The ride will start at the Taqueria San Juan in Castroville and end at the Alsatian Steinbach House Park, in Castroville, Medina county, Texas.

This is a self-guided GPS ride, as the ride is self-guided a group will need to keep moving to get in the 250 miles before dark, my group didnít last year.
Additional Notes: Different legs of the route come close to touching near Quihi, they don't but it will require attention to stay on the proper course.

Of course its all about fun, camaraderie and being safe. Some will focus on completing the route, others will just relax and ride to their cut off time and head home.

My group will leave the Taqueria San Juan about 9a, subject to change.

Logistics
The Alsatian Steinbach House Park or Castroville Park and Ride are options for parking for those that are trailering over. Lodging - The Landmark Inn State Historic Site Bed & Breakfast or Hotel Alsace & Spa. Camping is available at the Castroville Regional Park, 816 Alsace Street, on the Medina River.

Cora's 471 Grill is recommended for anyone interested in a post ride dinner.

If a non-riding companion needs something to do while you are out riding click HERE

A weather date decision will be made at least by the Wednesday before. Edit 1/11/17 - The Ride is on! Rain or Shine.




Medina County is immediately west of Bexar County in southwest Texas


What's next?
Adventure Breakfast - Sat 2/18/17 @ 9AM - Backyard Bistro in Pipe Creek & 2 day ride to Menard & back

TimberCat,

I'm guessing 50/50, maybe a little less dirt. The ride up 462, although necessary and pretty, and skews the percentage...

Trying to get in one little additional section of dirt without crossing tracks...

Correct, mostly class 1 roads. The route does go right by White Knuckle Ranch if anyone is up for a double jump...

Looking at your videos Sander, is it safe to assume this is big bike Tenere friendly?

I remember that Fire Truck was parked long ways blocking the entire road so I turned around to go back & dropped my XR in front of those firemen a couple of them helped me pick up the Big Red Pig then moved the truck so we could get by, I think I've dropped my XR on every CR out there
