The San Antonio River Ride

If you are in beautiful San Antonio, why not go for a ride south down the river from the Blue Star Art Gallery. Hire your bikes at Blue Star bikes as you will need them for a couple of hours. The good share-bike system in San Antonio is designed for shorter rides. As far as I can tell the safe and road free bike trails in San Antonio don’t amount to more than 20 miles but for an American town, that is actually quite good.

The most important thing about San Antonio is that it can be really nice in winter and extraordinary hot and muggy in summer.
Distance 28km return and pretty flat.  Bring lots of water in summer.

Lots of pics on Instagram of our lovely ride down the San Antonio River in January of 2018.

The highlight of #sanantonio is likely to be the #riverwalk. This consists of a sunken canal that does a one mile loop through town and a river controlled by dams and locks that heads through the city. Nearly as good as Venice but a bit like the #piratesofthecaribbean ride at Disneyland. #biketrailsanant #sanantonioriverwalk ...

To the south of #downtownsanantonio the river systems are impressive and the walking is good. #biketrailsanant ...
