One of the many reasons to head to the Fredericksburg area of the Texas Hill Country is the opportunity to explore by bicycle. Since traveling with your own bicycle and case can be expensive and cumbersome, finding a local bike shop that loves to take care of cyclists that are new to the area, can be a logistical savior.
Being in the bicycle touring industry for fourteen years, I've made it a habit to always get to know the local bike shops in the towns I'm working in or near. There are a few that stand out the world over when it comes to customer service and sharing that 'joie de vivre' for cycling and Hill Country Bicycle Works is at the very top of that list.
After a three year, 30,000 mile bicycle trip around the world, owners Lisa and Adam Salladin recognized the need for a bicycle shop in Kerrville and made it happen. A few years later, they opened the Fredericksburg branch and both locations are thriving due to their attention to detail and their efforts in contributing to the active communities they champion. They are true ambassadors of the sport and they'll take care of you while you're roaming the beautiful roads of the heart of Texas.
