Seeing the world by bike beats seeing the world by bus, as bus tours are often ruined by engine exhaust, construction detours, and guides who deliver facts by honking them in Morse code. Enjoy the calm of a two-wheeled trek with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
- $75 for a half-day winery bike tour for two (a $200 value)
- $135 for a full-day winery bike tour for two (a $300 value)
A local tour guide leads cycling pairs on a 12- to 17-mile or 25- to 30-mile custom winery tour with one or two other couples. Groups hit two local wineries on half-day tours and three on full-day tours, riding past verdant scenery with a stop along the way to refuel with lunch from Magnolias at the Mill. Each tour includes bicycle and helmet rentals for those without their own.
Trail’s End Cycling Co
Named for its location at the western end of the W&OD Trail, Trail's End Cycling Co welcomes cyclists of all stripes with a hefty inventory of gear and bikes alongside mechanical services. Each of the store's experienced staffers is also a mechanic qualified to fit bikes to riders' proportions or the gaudiness of racing stripes to their egos. When not training for the bicycle Iditarod, lead mechanic James Hodges channels 20 years of bike-industry experience into his tune-up tasks, and pro wrencher Bill McCarrick specializes in triathlete bike repair and prep.
The same able staffers also lead custom tours of wineries, fall foliage, and other seasonal sights in warm weather. During the winter, riders can pedal out of hibernation with indoor training rides atop their own bikes, which are secured on special mounts to keep them from zipping away.
