Two of the Bay Area’s biggest passions come together in Gears and Grapes Getaways, where sommelier-led cycling tours of the wine country expose people of all levels of fitness and wine connoisseurship to the joys of exercise and viticulture. Gears and Grapes’ hotel pick-ups and drop-offs make it easy for sizable groups of out-of-towners to spend the perfect day together, sipping and swirling and jotting notes about new favorite varietals, then hopping on a bicycle for more. There are both wine and beer tours of San Francisco proper, as well, meaning even locals can get in on the pedal-powered fun. Bring your own bike or use one from their fleet to cover Napa and Sonoma rides, which make sure you sweat out any of those toxins that the alcohol may have left behind.
