Take a tour of Napa Valley on your bike and visit all the fantastic wineries. Check out this great list (courtesy of VineLiving) of wineries you can get to on two wheels, and enjoy the beautiful Napa Valley weather.
The Napa Valley is known for wine, food and idylic scenery. What you probably don’t think of when you think of Napa is the amazing biking opportunities. Wether you’re an avid cyclist wanting to climb some crazy hills, or a mountain biker wanting to race down through the foliage on the hills the aforementioned group are climbing up, Napa has what you need! We have a bike trail that will take you from Napa to Calistoga, you can take Solano Avenue from Napa to Yountville without the fear of being on the highway! They’re truly are plenty of biking opportunities. When you think of wine tasting, I am sure biking is not the first thing that comes to mind! I love the fact that my husband and I can break out our bikes and ride to a few wineries from our house! I mean we are lucky to live in Napa, and now even luckier to be on this side of town that offers convenient, safe routes to local wineries.
