LBJ 100 Bicycle Tour 2016 - Presented By Friends Of Lyndon B. Johnson National Historical Park & National Park Service: Starting and ending on the famed LBJ Ranch, the routes ... moretake riders under majestic live oaks, past historical landmarks that figured prominently not only in the Johnson family history, but also in U.S. presidential history. See the descendants of President Johnson's famed Hereford cattle herd as you exit the Ranch. Thereafter, it's on to spectacular Hill Country cycling – on smooth-surfaced ranch-market roads and bucolic country lanes that will take you back in time. Visit rural, historic Gillespie County schools that do duty as rest stops on this scenic tour. This is truly a "Ride to Preserve History."

Our 36th President loved his ranch. He often conducted presidential business under the spreading oak trees, and he sought solace here from the rigors of the presidency.

As President Johnson told visitors to his beloved Hill Country ranch, "All the world is welcome here!" We want riders in the LBJ 100 Bicycle Tour to feel the same warm welcome and sense of Presidential history as those who came before them.
