"Nobody rides Willow City Loop anymore... its too crowded..."

Wow... what a crowd... Like the Drag on a football weekend...

Bumper to bumper for just about the entire loop. The weather was perfect, the flowers were wall to wall and the retirees were out in force.

If anyone gets out that way, go a bit further West and ride the back roads between Enchanted Rock and Cherry Spring. Just as beautiful with no traffic.

We rode Willow City this morning , it was starting to get crowded but not too bad. I'm glad we did it but you are right, go west or north I guess. We"re not local , so we're searching... We made a 70 mile loop south out of Mason and it was worth it.

If you don't know where you're going, any road will take you there.

I think I saw Bender, illegally pulled over on the Loop...

He was skipping work and hitting on ladies trying to take bluebonnet pictures...

Sad...

A buddy & I rode the Willow City Loop a few weeks ago. Pirates were everywhere! We stopped for a minute, looking at a county road to take, & here comes a gaggle of pirates on loud ass, shiny, couches on wheels. Lo & behold, they all took the county road we were looking at. We just shook our heads in disgust & stayed on the FM road.

I took an out-of-towner who's riding through this way and did the loop yesterday.

All those reports of "chances of rain" kept everybody off the roads. Had the whole area to ourselves.

We stopped in at Harry's at noon and he had to come out of the trialer to open it up. We were the first customers.
