Full-Day Sonoma Valley Bike Tour

Our Full-Day Sonoma Valley Bike Tour is offered seasonally from March 1st through November 15th. During the Fall/Winter Season, check out our Classic Half-Day Bike Tour.

TOUR OVERVIEW

Experiencing the vineyards from the seat of a bicycle is undoubtedly one of the most fun things to do while visiting Sonoma Valley! As you pedal past rows of vineyards, you’ll enjoy an invigorating sensory experience that simply cannot be duplicated inside a car, tour van or limo.

Your tour group (limited to 8 guests) will be led by a local, knowledgeable Tour Guide who’s there to enhance your education of the “vineyard-to-bottle” process. Before you get rolling, your Tour Guide will ensure that you’re completely comfortable with the fit and handling of your bike. And within the first mile or so, you’ll find the pace of our guided bike tours is definitely catered to casual riders, not cyclists.

You’ll pedal an average of 3-6 miles between each winery visit. With a casual pace and frequent stops, the emphasis is on enjoying the scenery and discovering boutique and family-owned wineries along the way. A highlight of your day will be enjoying a catered picnic lunch at a winery overlooking the vineyards.

You’ll feel the fresh air and be a part of the scenery instead of seeing it through the windows of a car, van or limo. Get out and experience the vineyards up close, engaging all five of your senses to create memories you’ll never forget!


Note: On rare occasions when there are 4 or fewer guests signed up for the Classic Half-Day Bike Tour, those guests may be combined with the Full-Day Bike Tour for a total of up to 12 guests at the first two winery visits. Half-Day Bike Tour guests will depart after the tasting at second winery (before lunch). A maximum of 8 guests will stay on for the picnic lunch, followed by third winery visit.

ABOUT THE WINERIES

When you’re looking for world-class wines, the Sonoma Valley boasts an embarrassment of riches. But when it comes to finding a wine tasting experience that stands apart, a warm and welcoming tasting room team who exude a sincere eagerness to share their knowledge makes all the difference.

In this spirit, the overall tasting room experience – and especially the people you’ll meet there – predominantly determines which wineries you’ll visit on tour with us.

Tasting appointments are finalized 5-6 days ahead of your bike tour.

If you are concerned about duplicating visits, please let us know about any existing appointments you have made, so we can avoid those wineries on your bike tour: info@sonomavalleybiketours.com
