Hillsboro is conveniently located 56 miles south of Dallas/Worth or 32 miles north of Waco on I-35 (exit 368 for Hill College).

Hill County is 986 square miles of rural area that is joined together with miles and miles of splendid paved farm-to-market roads. With a combined population of only 33,000, Hill County offers open spaces. On many areas of the bike ride, one can see for miles around—the splendid beauty of open land—flowing creeks, pastures with cattle and horses grazing, farmers' cultivated fields, and proud, rural communities. The varied routes all explore the back roads of Hill County and go through communities that were established during the 1850's when Hill County was created and named after Dr. George W. Hill, a settler who served as a congressman and Secretary of War for the Republic of Texas. - Web Page - - Reviews - - Flier -

May 20, 2017 Bosque Tour de Norway, Clifton, TX. The start/finish line will be at the Clifton High School. We have 4 routes to choose from, 20, 40, 60 and 80 miles. Each will allow you to enjoy the beauty of the top of Texas hill country. You will also be riding through the historical Norse community. The Norwegian settlement began here in 1854, the same year the county was founded, and was led by Ole Canuteson and included Cleng Peerson, "The Father of Norwegian Immigration to America." Thousands of Norwegian immigrants, some coming directly from Norway and others from northern states, would eventually settle between Clifton and Cranfills Gap by century's end. The Norwegian influence in the area is still very evident today, including Our Saviors Lutheran Church, site of our first rest stop, and St. Olaf Kirke, or as it is better-known, The Old Rock Church. This year we are the second leg of the European Tour of Texas Challenge that also includes the Germanfest ride in Muenster, the Tour d'Italia ride in Italy, and the Tour de Paris ride in Paris. Participants in the challenge register in advance as part of the challenge at https://www.bikereg.com/the-european-tour-of-texas-challenge and as long as they can show up and check in at three of the four rides included they will receive a custom jersey.
