The bridge is really cool, and so are the roads in that area.
Hope to go soon myself.

Quite a few posts on this site, and others as well. This is a popular destination.

From San Saba go north on TX 16 about 2 miles; left on FM 500 and go about 20 miles; right on CR 137 down the dirt road about 3/4 mile to the bridge.

Re: Regency Bridge - Goldthwaite, Texas

I actually just found out that if you type in Regency Suspension Bridge into Google maps, it'll bring up a list of places and the first one is the bridge. Seemed closer when I didn't really know where it was.

Re: Regency Bridge - Goldthwaite, Texas

Been there, wheelied over that! Its a neat place to see, but lots of dusty dirt road and not all that easy to find. I was last there in about on my KLR in '02.


I actually grew up down that way, had friends with a weekend place right by it and remember the old bridge before they redid it in the early 90's It was much cruder before that.

Re: Regency Bridge - Goldthwaite, Texas

After seeing Bob Phillips drive over the Regency Bridge every Sunday morning for years, I had to go check it out myself.





One lane suspension bridge over the Colorado River. Built in 1939, San Saba County, Texas

Regency Bridge - Goldthwaite, Texas (2-Up On a Buell)

Haven't been on for quite a while, but I've wanted to get a shot of my bike on the bridge for a long time and finally got some. I lived in Brownwood for a couple years, so this is a very familiar place.

Re: Regency Bridge - Goldthwaite, Texas

Here is one of my pictures of the Regency Bridge from a ride a couple years ago. The day they re-dedicated it in 1999 around 2500 people showed up.

Re: Regency Bridge - Goldthwaite, Texas

The Regency Bridge is very cool. I rode to Kerrville Oct. 6 and made a point of going over the Regency Bridge and also visiting the Beveridge Bridge. Here is a map from Regency to Beveridge: http://g.co/maps/jnfjk

Here I am with the rest of the 'Wild Hogs' on the bridge on Oct 6.:

Here is a video of my riding over the Regency Bridge: http://youtu.be/I_cFkGXUZbQ

The Beveridge Bridge which is closer to San Saba. It is no longer operational, but is real cool and was built in 1896.

View from new bridge looking at old one: http://g.co/maps/cp7ye

Re: Regency Bridge - Goldthwaite, Texas

On my last Regency Bridge trip


Regency Bridge Adventure
My favorite ME and Wife off bike riding pic is from the first time we went to this bridge (found it by luck, just riding down the road and saw the sign)

Have to see if I have that one on the Lap top...

Re: Regency Bridge - Goldthwaite, Texas

Great shot, aa5ib.

bronco78, a low fuel light is not what I'd want to see out there. Haha.

The stop at the bridge was part of around 600 miles of riding over the weekend. Did about 500 miles of it with my girl riding with me.

Re: Regency Bridge - Goldthwaite, Texas

We found this bridge over the Colorado back in the spring near Rockwood, north of Brady. It was being refurbished so we couldn't cross. Can't wait to return-it was HUGE!
