1. Mission Reach

Cruise down Mission Reach during spring’s temperate climes and you’ll have to agree, this rehabbed stretch of the San Antonio River is pretty damned special. Wildflowers and waterfowl compete for attention, while the paved routes accommodate most any type of bike. The South Side reach, which connects to a larger bike trail system along the river that starts near the San Antonio Zoo, recently opened an additional two-mile long section between Padre Park to Mission San Juan. The entire 10.2 mile project, stretching from Roosevelt Park and Lone Star Boulevard to Mission Espada, is due to be completed by the end of August. The proximity to several municipal parks and the Missions means amenities are never too far away, and a recent influx of B-Cycle hubs allows everyone to ride the river, bike-owner or not.
