Bike Austin (now merged with the Austin Cycling Association) invites you to the 42nd Annual Easter Hill Country Tour. Experience the charm and hospitality of the Texas Hill Country and three days of the best riding Texas has to offer for as little as $45. Quiet, well-paved roads, challenging terrain and panoramic scenery have made the EHCT one of the premier cycling events in Texas.


Founded in 1974 by the Lubbock Bicycle Club, the EHCT is hosted in rotation by the San Antonio Wheelmen, Houston Bicycle Club, Fort Worth Cycling Association and Bike Austin (which now includes the former Austin Cycling Association).

With no mass-starts, you’ll enjoy a relaxed, friendly cycling experience. All rides are fully-supported with rest stops and SAG vehicles. Join around 1,000 riders and see why the EHCT is an Easter weekend tradition. Bike Austin is a 501 (c)-3/4 non-profit organization and part of your registration fee will go to supporting cycling access, safety and education in Central Texas.



  • For the first time ever, we have decided to feature Austin's very own "Barn Owls" band and certified caller Sharon Isaac for a traditional square dance following the Saturday evening dinner at the YO Ranch Hotel. You will not require a partner and no prior experience is necessary.
  • We are hopeful that registration will be up and running about the end of November or early December. There are two ways for you to monitor this. Either keep checking the web site (and we shall now start posting registration updates in view of queries we are getting). Second, please can I ask you to "friend" our Facebook page (if you are a FB user). https://www.facebook.com/pages/Easter-Hill-Country-Tour/122619464474283 That is another way for you to monitor developments.
