The long road…

The long road may be straightforward but on a REVER challenge, you just never know what you will get. The Texas Hill Country is a compilation of twists, turns, bumps, ditches, paved, dirt, high and low roads. We give you the POI’s and you get an adventure in trade.

Our newest spokesperson for the Rendezvous is the infamous and slowly becoming famous Texas Tramper, Shana. She’s an open-minded and eyes-wide-open gal with her very own perspective on products, bike events and rides. We are excited to be bringing Shana on board as a sponsor and representative.

The Rendezvous

We’re taking it back a notch with an old-school vibe of the early years of riding when bikers huddled up around the campfire sharing tales, grub and good times. It is a rendezvous, a camp out, a great way to get out and ride. This is a no frills, just the thrill of the back road rendezvous in the heart of the Texas Hill Country. This is primarily a tent and bonfire adventure mixed with home-style grub at our cast iron cookout, kumbaya moments and hopefully someone will pack a guitar or flute. Yeah, it’s gonna get a little hippy-dippy and sometimes down and dirty but that’s the old school way. Keepin’ it real.

The Rendezvous  is an old school motorcycle campout and meet up with no frills. Just the open road, new old friends and great eats at our cast iron cookout. We have added one modern twist…The Hill Country Scramble. ALL bikes are welcome. Campground fees are posted on the registration page. 

Bonus! The weather is going to rock and the wildflowers will still be in full force. With enough roads for everyone, there’s no excuse. 

Ladies…love the camp out but need to plug in? There are modern facilities with decent showers.

Thinking outside the box…

Javelina  Javelina Harley Davidson sits a few miles out of the San Antonio area in Boerne, Texas, but has made huge strides in being bigger and more accessible than other HD dealerships. You might say that they are big thinkers, but I know it takes an innovative team to make Javelina more than a household name. Javelina Harley Davidson has made huge strides in tapping in to various markets by partnering up and supporting a variety of events.

Let’s start with the marketing and events planning team. Javelina has agreed to support my local event that is outside their area. Risky? Of course. New event, no proof of success, and no idea what to expect from the Rendezvous. All of these are valid reasons for a supporter or partner to run in the opposite direction. Yet without hesitation the team made it happen and we are excited to have Javelina Harley Davidson on board. After all, if we are about vintage and hippie, HD should be there to represent.

Today I am giving my Kudo’s award to Javelina Harley Davidson for thinking outside
the box. The Oxford Ranch Rendezvous was not the original vision but as the Ramble unraveled, I found the keywords to describe my vision. The Rendezvous has to be Screen Shot 2018-07-02 at 8.16.54 AMabout the biker, the ride and the star of the show ….. The Texas Hill Country! And, of course, my favorite tag line – “A time to make new old friends.”

Javelina has offered to support our event by providing goodies for the goodie bags. We won’t have goody bags. Maybe some HEB Texas Tough bags to keep things waterproof. All in all, we want Javelina to be as much a part of the event. Your take-aways will be beyond the material for sure as we ride in to a new era with our Rendezvous.

Join us and meet the Rendezvous crew at Javelina, September 15!

Staying off the main roads…


This weekend was about the roads. Back roads, dead ends, seemingly simple roads that twist in to adventure rides and then some. Where I sit with bike balanced under me, every day you have a chance to go down an unexpected road that will lead you to discovery, adventure and enlightenment. ‘Cause really it’s about you. Riding is a personal experience, but having others around you who get what you are saying is 100% community.

With that said I have begun work on the maps. Yes, there will be routes for dual, cruiser and adventurous cruisers like my Honda and me. You will have some odd low water crossings, places to cool off and moments you know you have to stop and take a pic. Don’t forget to #oxfordranchrendezous or tag @texashillcountrybiker. Sharing is caring!

IMG_6215Really, yesterday was not a day for epiphanies but definitely for some possible outcomes for the Rendezvous routes. After all my goal is not to be famous, but to help change how you, the rider, view the world. My favorite inquiry was if I would have rides for dual sport. Of course. The Hill Country is a playground. You may have some dead ends, but take a camera. Be prepared to turn around too. Because the ride is just beginning.

As the weeks get closer to the Oxford Ranch Rendezvous I will release maps, suggested ways to get to us, and more details on the Rendezvous. Be a part of the journey and make Oxford Ranch Campground your destination.



What Inspires Us…



Open Roads…Community…Campfires.

Three years ago when we started working on this non-event, we looked to our inspirations…the innovators, the adventurers and the newbies. The visionaries who put the parts together and created a two wheel odyssey for the few of us brave enough to flick that kicks stand up and roll forward. I couldn’t think of a better way to lose a few hours than in the Texas Hill Country.

As the roads were carved out it was as if they were made for the adventurers. Cagers and bikers alike take to the back roads weekly in search of the hidden byway or viewpoint. We pray for optimal weather and some clouds in the sky to soften the vast landscapes under pressure from the hot Texas sun. We search out alcoves, secret low water crossings and shade trees to hang out under.

IMG_2452We are returning to the simpler, goofier times of the biker life when bike games were about skills and campfires were meant for community. After a long days ride experiencing the challenges and outside events, you will want to kick off your boots.

This event is not for the city folk. You can get your fancy coffee in town, but we serve it up black and you can add your fixin’s. We won’t cut you loose without your breakfast tacos. It’s a Texas thing and you may just be one taco away from your Texas citizenship. We can help!

Ride ideas? We have you covered. We will have ride maps available October 1st so you can plan your group rides or get a birds eye view of how our brains work. Believe me. We take our cruisers on dirt roads too.
