The map is a little wrong. You can't get to lost since your doing a big loop, but near the end, the map has you going left and you really should take a right in order to continue on the road you should stay on. It doesn't matter, because taking the left will bring you back, it just cuts the distance down.
This was a wonderful ride. I am relatively new to biking, and typically ride about 10 miles a day. I wanted to try an a longer ride to see how I'd do, but I didn't want one that would be too hilly. That's hard to find here in the hill country! This ride was perfect. The harder parts (hilly) were along Klein-Ahrens Road, but in low gear they weren't overwhelming. After about mile 15, it was smooth sailing with just gentle ups and downs. It was a perfect ride on small two lane roads or even some one lanes through farm and ranch lands, with cows, horses, jack rabbits, goats, and deer seen along the way. The views all along the route were fantastic. It took me about 3 hours to complete. I highly recommend this ride.
