The Wheelmen are putting together a ride in the countryside surrounding Schulenberg to visit and tour four restored Catholic churches in the area (they are known as the Painted Churches) and you are invited to come along. It will be on Saturday, April 18th with a rain date of April 25th. The wildflowers should be out and they tend to be prolific and very beautiful in the Schulenburg area. We will start with a 25 mile loop in which we will visit three churches followed by an optional 20 mile loop to catch the fourth.
We’ll meet at Frank's Restaurant in Schulenberg, which is just off I-10. Driving time to Schulenburg is around two hours. It will take up most of the day so plan on getting back home mid to late afternoon. After the ride we can do a group lunch at Frank’s Restaurant (great country cooking).
The only water on the ride that we'll have access to is from spigots at the churches so please bring two water bottles and snacks.
To get to Frank's, take I-10 East to Schulenberg, exit 674 at Hwy 77. Turn right on Hwy 77 and it's immediately on the right side. Drive to the very back of the parking lot. Plan to arrive by 8:30; wheels down at 9:00.
Point of Contact is Bill Blackford @ 469-693-8247.
