Motorcyclists: The Best Cycletherapy Can Be Found in Leakey

By  | 

A small, unassuming spot by the Frio River, the town of Leakey, in the Texas Hill Country, thrives on summer tourism. Vacationing Texans and Tex-Pats are familiar with the locale, on a cypress-lined river, attracting a particular breed of tourist it’s not hard to pick out in a crowd. They’re the leather-clad motorcyclists, who have discovered this town on the western edge of the region has the three things that they like most: winding roads, hills to rise and ride down through gorgeous scenery, and genuine hospitality that is biker-friendly.

The Lone Star Motorcycle Museum in nearby Vanderpool helps to make the Leakey area a choice Texas Hill Country motorcycling destination. Popular motorcycle publications that spread the acclamations about the area, together with social media chatter in and throughout Texas, tell riders that one of the best places to get their cycletherapy is right here in the Lone Star State.

And, what would avid riders say was the number one scenic road to take in the area? A rollercoaster of a ride along RR 337 is the recommendation. A 58-mile tour, running from Medina through Leakey and on to Camp Wood, which winds its way across two counties and three canyons, allows riders to get a first-hand look at the Nueces, Sabinal, and Frio rivers. Awe-inspiring vistas, tight curves, steep climbs, and relaxing Hill Country character awaits. If you’re a motorcycle mama or papa, and you want to tour a place that’s welcoming and free from the traffic and urban sprawl, visit Leakey in the Texas Hill Country, where there’s nothing but sublime scenery flying by you!
