This trip gives you the best of both worlds in one of the most scenic areas in Wine Country—the Green Valley. Enjoy wine tasting as we bike to wineries in the morning, and kayak on the Russian River in the afternoon.
We come together at the Ragle Park at 10:30am. This allows time to finish your B and B breakfast or make the drive up from virtually anywhere in the Northern California region. We fit you with a Marin hybrid-style bike along with a helmet, bag, and comfortable gel-seat and then your tour leader goes over the “Rules of the Road”.
We ride down into the Green Valley, passing Graton, where we turn onto the bike path. Quiet, peaceful, and virtually traffic-free, this enchanting road will take us to Taft Street, our first winery stop, where we will have a chance to sample some of their fine wines.
Getting back on our bikes we continue riding while enjoying the views of the vineyards and surrounding hills. At our next stop, Cahill Winery, we will try their wines and then enjoy our Wine Country picnic lunch on the scenic covered patio!
After lunch we climb into our kayaks for a leisurely paddle along this picturesque, slow-moving river. The river winds through Wine Country, and is filled with birds and wildlife along the banks. There will be a few opportunities for some excitement as we go through easy Class I rapids. We finish our trip at approximately 3:30pm at Odd Fellows bridge. Here we will transport you back to your vehicles at Ragle park then bid you farewell!
