The Sun City Texas Motorcycle club's mission is to have a friendly and safe environment for Sun City residents to enjoy riding motorcycles and socializing.

HAVE A MOTORCYCLE or SCOOTER
OR  DREAM OF HAVING ONE? 

Come and ride with the Sun City Cruisers, our very own motorcycle group for fellowship, story swapping, discussions on bikes and accessories and planning for rides.  We have group rides around the area and also longer trips like rides to Big Bend and some all the way to Canada. All riders are welcome!  If you have any questions you can call Wayne Ware (512)-863-2202 or e-mail wayneware@sun-city-tx-clubs.org

Map #1 - DOC format and PDF format

Half the ride is through curvy two lane and the Hill Country Trail of four lane curvy ups and downs ( Known as the “Nameless Ride).  The other half is up in the farm lands and Prairie country.  There is a wonderful wild life reserve up on 1147 that is a nice place to stretch you legs.  There is also a good restaurant in Jonestown.

Get thee to Marble Falls and from there enjoy some of the scenery and vistas that give Hill Country its reputation. You’ll pass Shovel Mtn., Round Mtn. Wolf Mtn., Enchanted Rock, Prairie Mtn., and Cedar Mtn. just to name a few. This is a long ride, but well worth it, If you’d like to follow along by car, you are welcome to do so.

here's an interesting site http://www.openroadjourney.com
The site is designed to help motorcyclists find great roads and routes throughout the world.  Using a combination of Google Maps, GPS, and other technologies motorcyclists can share their favorite routes, create write-ups, include pictures, and include route features and road conditions.  Users can also view, comment on, and rate other user's roads and routes.

Users can share routes either by drawing it directly on an interactive map or uploading their GPS files, which ORJ then draws directly on a map for others to see. 

All of our routes are viewed directly on interactive maps in the browser and can also be downloaded to a GPS device, into Google  Earth, or just printed directly for a tank bag.  No more reading descriptions of a cool route and then trying to decipher where it is on a map!
