Kirbyville UMC no longer hosts cyclists

I spoke with the pastor at the Kirbyville, TX United Methodist Church which has hosted cyclists on the Southern Tour in the past and was informed that is no longer an option.

She said they have a preschool in the space where they formerly hosted cyclists.

Hi Cwaskas! :D

That's a real shame. I was very fortunate to stay there and be made most welcome, by Jim. There was a wonderful setup for bike adventurers with tools and maps and a very comfy bed! The highlight was dinner and breakfast with the generous and interesting Jim, not the Pastor, but a helper.
He had been hosting bikers since 2014, I believe and for this foreigner it was an educational and wonderful visit.

I am sorry that others will not have that experience and all the more grateful for mine.

Appreciate the news, if I'm not exactly cheered to read it.
