We had a wonderful time welcoming over 1000 riders new and old at the LBJ Ranch on April 2 for the 2022 LBJ 100.
Thank you to everyone who participated - the ride was a huge success and we wouldn't have been able to do it without you!

2023 Ride Update
As many of you know, the Friends of LBJ National Historical Park is run by a volunteer board. This year, the board’s efforts are focused on the Cabinet Oak Project, a unique fundraiser that will culminate in a celebration and art auction on May 6, 2023 at Garrison Brothers Distillery in the Texas Hill Country. Proceeds from this project will support our partners at the National Park Service in the restoration of the Texas White House at the LBJ Ranch and in the establishment of an artist-in-residence program at the park.
Putting this project together takes an enormous amount of time and resources, and as such, the board has opted not to host the LBJ 100 Bicycle Tour in the spring of 2023. We understand that this may disappoint the many cycling enthusiasts and park supporters who have attended the ride in past years.
We know you share our appreciation of the LBJ Ranch and our mission to support the park in the areas of education, preservation, and restoration. Cyclists are always welcome at the LBJ Ranch during operating hours. Reconnect with this historic and beautiful property if you can! We also invite you to learn more about the Cabinet Oak Project here. To stay up-to-date on the May 6 event and art auction, please join our email list here and follow us on social media at @friends_of_lbj.
If you’d like more information on becoming a sponsor of the Cabinet Oak Project this event, please contact us.
We appreciate your continued support of the Friends of LBJ National Historical Park!
