We live north of there in what is called the northern Hill Country (shhhhh! it's a secret) but go to Fredericksburg often. In fact, tonight we're debating taking the tandem on Saturday for the LBJ 100. And my wife loves the Scotch eggs at the brewery in town.
Visitor center is very helpful, but as a native Texican....the very best map you will find is an atlas called Backroads of Texas. Make some 11 x 17's and go ride.
However, an excellent source of routes is here http://www.cycletexas.com/routes/index.php
I have all of these printed and in a 3 ring binder. IMHO these are the BEST resources for going to the 'Burg. But take either a county map or something from Backroads and then you can make your own short cuts. Take a compass of some sort if it's overcast. Texas isn't as flat as some folks think.
