Description

The Tri-County Hill Hopper is a scenic, hill covered course that passes through historic Fayette, Colorado, and Austin Counties. This route takes you by Somerset Lavender Farm, an animal reserve where you might see some exotic animals, historic downtown Fayetteville and Round Top, TX, and a variety of famous Antique shops. Round Top is also famous for their pie, so you might stop by and get some after your ride! 

The Tri-County Hill Hopper is a Recommended Ride that many participate in to prepare for Bike MS: Texas MS 150. The many hills on this ride are good practice for the hills through the Texas hill Country.

Event details and schedule

The Tri-County Hill Hopper is a Recommended Ride featuring lots of hills on the windy roads in Fayette, Austin, and Colorado Counties. We have a variety of routes: 20.8, 36.4, 52 and 67.4 miles – all of which have their own challenges to prepare participants for other tough rides.

We have EMS, Police Officer, and Ride Marshal support during this ride. There are rest stops along the routes that will have water, Gatorade and some snacks. Our after ride meal has typically consisted of sausage wraps graciously provided by our sponsors. 

Admission is $35 until January 16th, $40 until February 14th, and $45 the day-of. We strongly encourage registration before the event date, although day-of registration is available and begins at 7 a.m. Online registration will be closed on Friday, February 14th, 2020 to help us prepare for the ride and after that only day-of registration is available. 

All rides start promptly at 9:00 a.m. with a final route sweep at 3:00 p.m. A t-shirt is included in registration and guaranteed to riders who register before February 2nd. The t-shirt design is chosen through an art contest held among consumers of Brazos Valley Center for Independent Living, the beneficiary of this event.

Start location is at Cole’s Antiques’ parking lot on the corner of Texas Highway 237 and FM 954 in Warrenton, TX. Helmets are required and headphones are not permitted.
