We've made our reservations and have a preliminary route for a 75 mile Saturday morning group ride targeting paved county roads to Luckenbach, Willow City & Eckert, with an option to extend 20 miles to Enchanted Rock.

Ana, Dad and I all have our rooms booked.

I am planning a recon visit in February to scope out possible dirt ride for the URAL's.

If Lee plans 75 to 90 miles then if we get 45 - 50 miles of dirt we should be back to base around the same time.

I lived 10 years in the Fredrickesburg area and have not been able to find a dirt or gravel road, lots of great riding but no dirt. Put it on my calendar, we hope to be there.

For dirt roads - there's some nice ones between Harper and Mason, west of Doss - including a long low water crossing of the James River.
East of F-Bug - Rocky Road from Hye down to 1623 is a nice mostly dirt road, also FLat Creek Road east to Johnson City is pretty nice.
NE - past WIllow City towards Llano - there's a bunch of county roads that are dirt - at least part of the way - Althuas/Davis Road is dirt until it turns into FM3347 - there's a bunch of roads around CLick that are dirt - and a nice slick low water crossing of Sandy Creek.

River Crossings are great Kevo.

I do not know the area and will have to do a recon ride to investigate and map out a route. Any input on possible routes and sites would be great. Dirt trails, roads and water crossing seem to excite Ural Owners....... :boogie:

Recon Ride I am thinking will be February still do not have a weekend placed in stone. Anyone interested in helping or just riding along please PM me.

Kent, I would like to hook up with you when you are checking out the dirt roads around Fredricksburg. I have ridden most of the roads in the area. There are NO dirt roads in Gillespie Co. and very few in Kendall or Kerr Counties. Mason and Llano Counties do have dirt. They are a little further from me so I have ridden fewer of them but would love to explore anything and everything. - Bill

Kevo, I have an old county map showing gravel or dirt roads in the triangle of Fredericksburg harper and Doss. North of HiWay 290 the road that follows Edwards Creek looks promising. Know anything about it?
