Fredericksburg to Kerrville

March 3, 2017

Heritage and history define the Fredericksburg-to-Kerrville ride. Ever since Baron Otfried Hans von Meusebach made peace with the Comanche and found a site 80 miles northwest of New Braunfels to accommodate more German settlers coming into the region, Fredericksburg has been a sought after destination. The towns around here celebrate their rich German heritage with annual events including Founders Day, Food & Wine Fest, Oktoberst, Kinderfest and more. Motorcycling events here include the Hill Country Run in May and the Harvest Classic Motorcycle Rally in October (both in Luckenbach), as well as the Johnson City Pig Roast, also in October. And don’t miss the Kerrville Folk Festival—18 days of fun and strummin’ starting Memorial Day weekend.
