Experience California’s wine country by land and by water! Your tour begins at Sebastopol’s Ragle Park in the famed Sonoma Valley, where you’ll meet your guide and be fitted for a hybrid bike and helmet. Set off on a two-wheeled tour of the Alexander Valley winemaking region — a picturesque landscape of rolling hills and historic vineyards known for producing excellent cabernet sauvignon and merlot.
Learn about the history and highlights of this scenic region from your guide as you ride approximately 7 miles (11 km) along easy, mostly flat country roads. Stop at two or three local wineries for a tasting of Alexander Valley’s award-winning wines (own expense), and enjoy a gourmet picnic lunch at one of the beautiful estates (see Itinerary for a sample menu). Soak up the verdant, peaceful scenery and perhaps even play a game of bocce ball after your meal.
In the afternoon, head to a launch point on the Russian River. After a safety orientation and learning a few paddling techniques, climb aboard a kayak and glide down this beautiful waterway that winds through Sonoma Valley. Keep an eye out for local birdlife like blue herons as you float past rolling hills and lush riverbanks, and get your pulse up navigating some small rapids!
No biking or kayaking experience is necessary, as your knowledgeable guides will provide all needed instruction.

Excellent with great guides -very pleasant
Learnt a lot
Pricey but you get your money's worth
The tour was wonderful!! The bike ride and kayaking took us through beautiful scenery. We saw wildlife on the river and had some lovely wine tastings. Our guides were a father son team; Eric and Jim; and they were fantastic! We were a group of 7 women and we could not have asked for a better day. PERFECT!
We had a fabulous time even better than we expected. Out Tour guides Justin and William met our every need, lunch was great, they always made sure that we were all doing fine circled back on the bike and kayak to get the less experienced caught up and to ensure thier safet. Gave them both $ 100 tip!
