Ride Texas magazine publishes a book (available through Amazon) of favorite Texas roads if you're ever planning a trip to or through Texas.

A nice addition to any ride planning in Central TX is this map:
It has not had a major update since 1999,but, has all the great backroads. Have ridden a LOT of these and constantly try a different one. It does not show any of the new tollroads around Austin and some of the 1604 loop around San Antonio...but the old county roads and ranch roads are all there...there are a few that go from pavement to gravel for short sections...but that is part of the adventure. I have given marked up copies away to several visitors..some got mailed back with a thank you! Cost is around $5 at some local bike shops or a few online sources as above.
It misses the western leg of the fabled Three Sisters near Leakey and stops north of Menard over to Cameron but anything west of Austin is in the Hill Country and worth a checkout

I use "The Roads of Texas", a map book published by Mapsco, and available on their website and in any Mapsco store. Fantastic, has even the tiniest FMs and RRs.
