2018 Texas Coast Loop 2 (DRAFT)

posted Feb 4, 2013, 1:25 PM by Mark Jensen   [ updated Jan 15, 2018, 3:14 AM ]

Our first multi-day ride of the year will be March 23 – 26 and will loop around Texas covering three very different areas of the state including the East Texas Piney Woods, the Texas Coastal Bend, Goliad & Fannin, and San Antonio.  Total distance is about 1,250 miles over 4 days and includes 2 free ferries.

We will depart at 8:30 AM March 23rd from Whataburger in Terrell and head through the east Texas piney woods to Winnie, TX with a lunch stop at TX Burger in Corrigan. We'll spend the night at the Winnie Inn.

Day 2 the route stays close to the coast with stops in Galveston and (if time permits) Sea Center Texas and spend our second night in Ingleside ??? near Port Aransas.

Day 3 we will continue down to the free ferry to Mustang Island at Port Aransas.  We will continue south on Mustang Island looping around the south side of Corpus Christi avoiding the city.  We will head to Historic Goliad State Park (https://tpwd.texas.gov/state-parks/goliad) and Fannin Battleground State Historic Site (http://www.thc.texas.gov/historic-sites/fannin-battleground-state-historic-site).  After lunch at Aunt Di's Kountry Kitchen in Yorktown we will head to the Alamo and then to Market Square in San Antonio for the night. Dinner will be at La Margarita Restaurant.

The last day will be taking back roads from San Antonio to the DFW area with a lunch stop at Health Camp Burgers and Shakes in Waco.
