🏍 Tour of Painted Churches

September 18 @ 8:00 am - 1:30 pm CDT


SABMW Riders,

Member and SABMWRA Secretary, Tom Wilmotte, has meticulously planned a ride to and tour of 3 of the beautiful Painted Churches located in and around the Czech / Polish Corridor of Texas near Schulenburg.  Tom has asked me to assist him with the planning and execution of this ride, so here are the plans.  Tom and I will meet at the Mague’s Cafe, 20450 TX-46, Spring Branch, TX 78070, at 7:00 AM for coffee and a taco, and everyone is invited to meet us there for coffee and conversation before we begin.

We will depart Mague’s at 8:00 AM sharp, so please have your bike fueled, kick stands up and ready to go at that time.  If there is a large number in the group we will split the ride into 2 groups to maintain ride integrity.  Both groups will follow the exact same route which will be briefly detailed here, but with a map and in more detail later.  Our route will follow TX-46 through New Braunfels to Seguin where we will stop for a “BioBreak” at the Shell station located on the south side of the intersection of IH-10 and TX-46.  If you’d rather meet the group there at the Shell station, we plan to be there at around 8:45 AM and will leave promptly at 9:00 AM.  From the Shell station we’ll briefly ride I-10 until we join US-90 and continue through Luling, Waelder, and Flatonia on US-90.  We plan to stop again for another BioBreak in Flatonia as restrooms are scarce at the churches.  From there it’s on to the first church, St. Mary’s Catholic Church, in Praha.  After a planned 25 minute self guided tour of St. Mary’s (Praha) we’ll continue on some great back roads to St. Mary’s Catholic Church in High Hill, where we plan on another 25 minute stop.  From High Hill we’ll ride some more great country roads, crossing the Piano Bridge in Dubina, to the Saints Cyril and Methodius Catholic Church in Dubina.

When we’re all finished with the last church, we’ll be headed back to Luling, mostly on I-10 and around 53 miles, to the City Market, in Luling, for a late BBQ lunch around 1:30 PM.

Make plans to join us, it’s gonna be a blast!
