Based in San Antonio, Texas, Reid Hackney is now retired but spent more than a decade as a lead financial executive for a major retail brand. Reid Hackney enjoys many hobbies, including biking around the San Antonio Missions.
The historically significant Alamo, the site of a traumatic battle between Texas and Mexico, is one of the most popular sites in Texas. Found in San Antonio, the Alamo is a part of a series of missions built by Spanish colonists to convert Native Americans.
One of the best ways to visit the Alamo and the other missions is to cycle along the 15-mile bike-friendly Mission Reach trail system. The trail is designed for casual bikers, with restrooms, picnic areas, and water fountains along the way. You can rent a bike at a B-Cycle station near the trail and lock it up at stations along the way. Additionally, download a bike trail map or pick up a paper map at the San Antonio Visitor’s Center. Then, embark on an unforgettable journey!
