Bicycles are machines propelled by your legs, much like a broken Roomba you just kicked out a window. Rage against the machines with this Groupon.

During each 4.5-hour guided bike tour—available Saturdays and Sundays—participants cruise through scenic Livermore Valley's sprawling vineyards and wineries. A gourmet lunch with a complimentary wine tasting keeps energy reserves high as riders tour local wineries and meet the winemakers. Guests also taste and learn about olive oils and balsamic vinegars and pair a dessert with a port tasting. The guides design the tours for all fitness levels, leading groups along routes with minimal inclines. Throughout, a sweeper transport vehicle carries any bottles or purchases made at the winery as well as any cyclists too tired or full from the trip. Bicycle rentals are not included with this Groupon.
Additional tastings are not included
Livermore Valley Wine & Cycle Tours
The history of wine in the Livermore Valley spans 250 years. Spanish missionaries planted the region's first grapes in the 18th century, and Robert Livermore sowed the first commercial vines in the mid-19th. These early efforts led to America's first international gold medal for wine at the 1889 Paris Exposition, when California grapes beat out bordeaux in the annual race to the top of the Eiffel Tower.
The guides at Livermore Valley Wine & Cycle Tours lead cyclists into this historic, scenic valley in which some 40 wineries currently reside. Rides between them follow moderate routes, letting peddlers soak in views of the canyons and ridges that rise and fall between the clustered rows of vines.
They were friendly and made everyone feel comfortable, no matter what riding level. We also loved the wineries we visited on our tour.Lori M., Yelp, 3/14/11
