The "Magical Museum Tour" is a fundraiser and social ride for the Houston Bicycle Museum starting and finishing in Schulenburg, Texas. It features rides of different lengths on low traffic country roads and will also provide you with a chance to visit the famous “painted churches” of Fayette County. Each of the routes will cross a piano-wire truss bridge erected in 1885 (that’s 131 years ago). Also, there will be a historian on site at the Saint Cyril Methodius Catholic Church in Dubina to provide historical context for your enjoyment and education.

See for yourself how beautiful these churches are:

In the spirit of the growing movement of vintage bike riding, we encourage you to participate as a vintage rider of any era.  Bring your vintage machine and dress the part as well, as there will be a prize given to the rider in the most authentic attire.  (Helmets are still required.)

Here is a good overview of vintage cycling:

Registration begins at 7:00 am and complimentary refreshments will be available at the start and during the ride.  The ride will begin at 8:00 am.

After the ride, tour the local wineries for tastings then visit the Stanzel Model Aircraft Museum and the Texas Polka Music Museum.

Go early and spend the night enjoying the little town with its historical Czech flavor. An area map will be available for those of you who want to stay over and explore the roads of Fayette County on Sunday. The roads in the area are all lightly traveled.  Rides to other destinations would be “on-your-own".

Come join us on Saturday, October 6, 2018, for a great ride for a good cause, the funding for the Houston Bicycle Museum!

Note: Routes will be offered through Ride With GPS which features turn by turn voice commands right from your phone as well as download options for a variety of GPS devices.
