What You Can Expect
Pedal through Kuitpo Forest, home to abundant radiata pines that keep the path shady, and cycle along parts of the Kidman Trail. Because your tour starts from one of the highest points in the region, you can enjoy a leisurely ride down Willunga Hill while you admire scenic vineyard views. Pass by wineries surrounded by vine-covered slopes, and stop at two wineries for wine tastings. If you purchase any bottles of your favorite varietals, they can be transported in the tour vehicle. Additional stops may also be made depending on time and the interests of your group.
Lunch is provided from a mix of produce and other items from local farms, giving you the opportunity to enjoy more of the region’s culinary delights. Then continue by bike to your final stop, which you may choose as a group with your guide. Perhaps you’d like to try beer instead of wine with a visit to a local microbrewery, for instance. If your legs are too tired to go on at this point, you may hop in the tour vehicle. At the end of your bike ride, you and your purchases will be driven back to Adelaide for drop-off at your hotel, where you just might feel like uncorking one of your new bottles to toast your McLaren Vale adventure.
I really enjoyed this tour. There are many wine tours but this one has a twist. If you are reasonably fit the mountain bike riding is great fun as it takes you through some woodland areas then onto roads and tracks which are mostly down hill with only one small up hill but this depends on which vineyards you visit. Better than being cooped up in a minibus.
Only my wife and I on this tour led by Lee. He was first class and looked after us very well. Good bikes and interesting day with good wineries visited. very satisfied

Awesome - I wish it was longer and we could have ridden more. Highly recommend!
This was a great day out. We enjoyed the riding which was just enough considering the warm weather. The 2 wineries chosen were excellent and we arrived home to find the wine we ordered waiting at our door. Great lunch, company and Ian was very flexible with fitting in with the needs and interests of the group. Highly recommend this tour.
This tour was amazing!
What a great day! Collected from hotel by friendly, competent tour leader and driven into Hills via scenic route. Tested our quality bikes riding through the forest then onto McLaren Vale for sampling all the region has to offer. Lunch of shared platters was delicious too.
There's no better way to visit this region!
The absolute best way to see the country and taste the wine. Ian, our tour guide, was lovely, friendly and very obliging for our needs. The small group was very friendly and we all shared experiences etc. over a lovely drop of local wine. I would definitely recommend this tour. My husband and I are 50+ and we handled the ride , no problem.
This is an absolute must do!!! The countryside scenery can not be experienced on foot or in a van, it just can't. The lovely smell of the flowers, the wind in your hair and the smile on your face as you travel on the bikes is second-to-none. I would do this tour, again and again.
Ian was our guide, he was professional, safe and fun to spend the day with!
Very well run and the weather was great. We were the only two on the tour, so we got one on one treatment. The country side was magnificent and the lunch and wineries were great too.
Best way so far to see the sights of Adelaide and enjoy the McLaren Valley wine country. Saw lots of Kangaroos because we went to places the cars can't get too.
Recommend to all ages and fitness. Ian and Deb look after you from the moment you step outside your hotel.
