If you are a cyclist looking for a challenging ride followed by afternoon wine tasting at small, family-owned wineries, this is the trip for you.
We meet you at 10am in downtown Healdsburg for a quick bike fitting (we use Specialized Allez road bikes) and then we are off on a 30-35 mile ride. We ride past the scenic vineyards of the Dry Creek Valley into the historic haven of Asti, where we take a water break, and then we continue down through Alexander Valley, where beautiful vistas abound. Once we arrive back into Healdsburg, the second half of our day begins.
After a quick van ride, we make our first of two or three winery stops of the day. While you are inside tasting and exploring, your tour guide sets up a delicious Wine Country picnic lunch to help you refuel. After lunch we continue in the van to the remaining wineries. We load up any wine purchases that you have made, and we head back into town to drop you off at your car.
