Overview

Enjoy McLaren Vale on two wheels with an easy-paced bike tour that highlights the bucolic beauty of this renowned South Australian wine region. You’ll cycle through Kuitpo Forest and past pretty vineyards as you make your way to at least two wineries for wine tastings of regional varietals like shiraz. A lunch of fresh produce from local farms is included, as is round-trip transport from Adelaide to McLaren Vale, where you’ll start biking. This tour is limited to nine people to provide a small-group experience with personalized attention from a guide.
  • Fully guided bike tour of South Australia's McLaren Vale wine region
  • Visit at least two local wineries for wine tastings
  • Enjoy mixed platters of local produce for lunch
  • Pedal at an easy, relaxing pace through the beautiful Kuitpo Forest and vineyards of McLaren Vale
  • Mountain bike and helmet included
  • Small-group tour limited to nine provides an intimate experience with a guide
Your day trip starts with pickup in Adelaide by luxury vehicle for the approximate 30-minute journey south of the city to McLaren Vale, one of Australia’s top wine regions, known for its production of shiraz. Receive a brief introduction to the bike tour before hopping on your high-quality mountain bike and taking off with your experienced guide.

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.

Great day with stops at unique cellar doors and a chance to get a good insight into the ethos behind the wine. Delicious lunch and an opportunity to get to know other people on the tour. Cycling not too advanced but varied and interesting .. little bit off road little bit on road with mostly downhill stretches. Thanks to Ian our guide, Paul and Caron

Ian is running this family business as a Bike tour guide for one-day trips in McLaren Vale including everything I like: great views, sport, nature, good food, great wine and beer tasting opportunities, along with providing the right amount of information. Friendly, knowledgeable, kind, fun, Ian is one person who can create such great day. Done in a small group, this is pleasant and manageable, and the level of fitness required for the mountain bike ride is accessible to everyone - bike, gloves, mountain bikes provided.
It was a great day, with the right amount of fun, friendliness, sport, nature, and tasting. High recommendation to discover the surroundings of Adelaide or simply enjoy a day of fun if you live in there.

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.

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.

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.
