Medina County 250 Adventure Motorcycle Ride

Ride-Medina County 250 Adventure Motorcycle Ride
Date-January 19, 2019
Location-Castroville, Medina County, Texas
Info

A Texas Adventure Riders Association San Antonio Chapter Event

What?
A 250-mile adventure motorcycle ride entirely within Medina County Texas. Saturday, January 19, 2019

The ride will start and end at the Alsatian Steinbach House Park in Castroville, Medina County, Texas. For 2019 the route will run counterclockwise.

A weather date decision will be made at least by the Wednesday before.

Breakfast
Note a suggested earlier than normal meet & start time – Although the regular Adventure Rider Breakfast Series meet time is 9a, I’ll probably arrive at Sammy’s by 745a, every rider should be on route by 9a.
The breakfast spot is Sammy’s Restaurant as it’s just west, across the street from the Alsatian Steinbach House Park. If Sammy’s Restaurant becomes too crowded Haby’s Alsatian Bakery is available for take out pastries and kolaches, its located directly across US90. And the original home of the bike breakfasts, Taqueria San Juan, is two minutes west on US90.

My group will depart the Alsatian Steinbach House Park about 9a.

I’ll be handing out unofficial IV Medina County 250 Adventure Motorcycle Ride starter stickers at breakfast at Sammy’s Restaurant or at the Alsatian Steinbach House Park.

Parking
The Alsatian Steinbach House Park or Castroville Park and Ride are options for parking for those that are trailering over. Riders have parked at Sammy’s in past, they several have no parking signs posted for non diners, ask first, park there at you own risk.

Lodging
The Hotel Alsace & Spa, now Hillside Texas. Camping is available at the Castroville Regional Park, 816 Alsace Street, on the Medina River.

Dining
I plan on having dinner at Fremdes Pizza after the ride if anyone wants to join in, about 530p. They have live music both Friday and Saturday night. https://www.fremdes.com/about-fremdes/

Another option is the Castroville Cafe next door or Cora’s up FM 471 known for “The Best Nachos in Texas”. Or to feel like you are in Europe, Alsatian Restaurant.

The Route
This is a self-guided GPS ride, start a group or join one, as the ride is self-guided a group will need to keep moving to get in the 250 miles before dark, my group finished the route on ride 2 but not the 1st or 3rd for only a 33% completion percentage.
Additional Notes: Different legs of the route may touch (due the 2019 rotation) near Quihi, it will require attention to stay on the proper course.

Of course the ride and gathering is 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.

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.
