Come along and enjoy a beautiful day of exploring the hills and vineyards of South Australia by bike through beautiful McLaren Vale- and don't worry, we will take the sting out of the climbs by starting at the highest point in the area and riding mostly downhill!
You will be picked up in central Adelaide in our minibus and transported to the McLaren Vale wine region. We will provide you with a good quality mountain bike with front suspension & disc brakes, and a helmet if you do not have your own.
We will start off by exploring the beautiful Kuitpo forest, before riding along sections of the Kidman trail and then enjoying the descent down Willunga Hill towards McLaren Vale. We will then ride through the vineyards and stop at a number of local wineries to sample their fare and perhaps purchase some wine to take home with you. We will also stop for a lunch comprising of local produce along the way. After lunch we let the group decide where to go- another winery, microbrewery, beach or cafe are all options!
Finally, you will be picked up and transported back to Adelaide.
Pick-up by minibus, mountain bike and helmet hire, guiding and vehicle support throughout the day, Mediterranean platter lunch, and wine tasting at 2 or more wineries.
