What You Can Expect
No matter which tour you choose, enjoy pedaling down country lanes and past historic vineyards on a unique itinerary created just for cyclists. Visit several local wineries for tastings and enjoy a gourmet picnic lunch. The leisurely pace of a bike ride allows you to be truly immersed in the gorgeous scenery and stop along the way for breaks and photos.
See Itinerary below for complete tour details of each location.
The Carneros region in Napa Valley is known for its small-batch, family-owned wineries, which are comparable to that of Burgundy, France. You will begin in Carneros and visit 1-2 wineries along the mostly flat biking terrain. This leisurely route is made up of beautiful, lush vineyards, and nature welcomes you with open arms. Keep an eye out for the local wildlife while you enjoy a Wine Country picnic lunch at a magnificent winery with a lovely view. After your final wine tasting, you will bike back to Carneros.
Calistoga Sip 'n' Cycle Bike Tour
Take an off-the-beaten-path bike tour of the quaint resort town of Calistoga, located in upper Napa Valley. As you travel 10 to 17 miles (16 to 27 km) along country lanes, you'll take in the Palisades Mountains on one side and the grape vines on the other side. Enjoy tastings at approximately three wineries, along with your rest stop for a scenic picnic lunch. The winery where you'll stop for lunch contains an extensive collection of artwork and antiques, and you can admire the wares before hopping back on your bike and heading to your final wine tasting, then back to Calistoga.
Healdsburg Sip 'n' Cycle Bike Tour
This is your chance for a tour of Sonoma County, known for its white wine varietals and spicy reds. On this moderate bike tour, you will ride approximately 18-20 miles (29 to 32 km) in picturesque Dry Creek Valley, home to the town of Healdsburg. Many wineries and fun shops reside in Healdsburg, and you will have the opportunity to have a few wine tastings before your lunch stop at a charming winery. After lunch and maybe a game of bocce ball, you will be off to 1-2 more wineries, and then your trip will conclude in Healdsburg Plaza. Make a complete day of it and shop the boutiques, browse the antique stores and visit local art galleries, all within walking distance.
The bike rides between vinards were nice, not many hills it climb. Guide was great and very informative. We had fun. We were a small group of two, but there were some larger group that were having a great time also..
Amazing! Our tour guide Eric was absolutely wonderful. Such a gentleman and so knowledgeable. He took us to the most wonderful wineries, and prepared an absolutely delicious lunch. I will certainly book another Sip n' Cycle, the next time I'm in Napa.
The tour was wonderful and our guide did a wonderful job. Great wineries, delicious lunch prepared by Dustin our guide. I would definitely do another tour w Dustin and recommend highly to others.
Randy and Jen were great hosts! We toured 3 different wineries and enjoyed the perfect weather and awesome scenery. The lunch was above and beyond what we had expected - more than a typical sandwich and bag of chips! Would highly recommend this to anyone
This tour was amazing!
The tour guide was right on with laid back ride and amazing wineries. Thank you for a well put together tour!
Need a bit of fitness but this tour is fantastic. Our guide Jason was superb and we visited four wineries BUT, note the tasting charges vary from winery to winery from $10 to $20 which is quite pricey. Unforgettable day with some quality wines and some interesting facts learnt.
Casual pace. Great company! Great wine! Great value! Will do it again in the future, but this time will wait until late April when the vines are greener and everything is in bloom. However, don't let that stop you from doing this anytime. The weather was perfect for cycling in March.
It was fun and not too exacting. Tom our guide knew lots about 'how to sip' and about the fields and vineyards we passed.
I was a little disappointed in that I was told we would ride 5 or so miles and stop at a vineyard and do tastings. Then repeat for 20 miles. Trip was 26. We rode 13 miles before stopping! Didn't get pics along the way due to keeping up with the other 4 people. :( Lunch was great. Guide was ok.:(
