Self-Guided Napa Valley Bike Tours
Even diehard "do-it-yourselfers" should consider a few important logistics before deciding to simply rent bike and tour totally unsupported.
For one thing, when planning your lunch "on the go" you'll find delis are few and far between once you're out cycling among the vineyards- and the lines often get long.It's not unsual to encouter a 30-minute wait (or longer) for a sandwich.
And if you're planning to purchase wine during your bike ride, carrying it while biking can pose another obstacle. Even if you wear a backpack, you'll risk damaging your prized finds by exposing them to heat.
With all this in mind, you can improve your experience exponentially by choosing a Self-Guided Bike Tour. You'll still pedal at your own pace, stopping at wineries you've chosen to visit (we can help if you need suggestions!); but, you'll enjoy the added conveniences of having your wine purchases picked up for you and a catered deli box lunch arranged in advance; we'll steer you to a local park with shaded picnic tables where you can enjoy your lunch while deciding which tasting rooms to visit next!
It's the fool-proof way to pull of a perfect day of biking to wineries "on your own" - with just the right amount of support!
About the Wineries
With more than 60 wineries located along our most popular bicycling routes, how do you begin to narrow down the choices? Two words: legendary hospitality.
The Napa Valley truly is an embarrassment of riches when it comes to great wines. So when it comes to finding a wine tasting experience that really stands apart, a warm and welcoming tasting room team who exude passion and a sincere eagerness to share their knowledge, really makes the difference.
In this spirit, the overall tasting room experience – and especially the people you’ll meet there - predominantly influences our recommendations.
"The moment we arrived at Napa Valley Bike Tours, we were greeted with smiles, and friendly and helpful staff, who gave us their personal recommendations. The entire day was beautiful and quite romantic for us. We were able to experience the wineries, but still have time to just be a couple together. If we are back in town again we would definitely do this again!"
"I took a self-guided tour twice while in Napa for an out-of-town job. I enjoyed being able to set my own pace, select the wineries I'd like to visit and ride through the valley in great weather. What a great way to have fun and exercise as well."
