Gently cycle your way to famous venues including Maggie Beers, Penfolds and Jacobs Creek as well as some hidden secrets along the way.  Dine at award-winning cellar doors including Skillogalle and O’Leary Walker’s in the Clare Valley.

The cycling is predominantly off road using the paved Barossa trail and the fantastic Riesling Rail Trail in the Clare.  Being self-guided you can ride as little or as much as you like (as long as you make the lunch bookings which are well worth a little effort).  This tour is fully supported with luggage transfers, on-call support, bikes, helmets, maps, directions and printed itineraries all provided.

With more than 150 years of winemaking history, the Clare Valley is one of Australia’s oldest wine regions. Originally inhabited by the indigenous Ngadjuri people, with Europeans arriving initially in Penwortham in 1839 with the first vines appearing in the early 1840s. The Clare Valley itself is 35kms (21.7mi) in length and a slim 5-10kms (3-6mi) in width, with vineyards lying between 320 and 570 meters (1049 and 1870ft) above sea level, such height possibly explaining the vibrant personality of the white wines produced in this region, particularly the Riesling, with strong lemon and lime characteristics.

Being self guided you can choose to enjoy this tour on any day or date that suits you (please be aware all venues are closed on Xmas day and many close for Boxing day and New Years day).

Please note that the tour price given is the ‘from’ price – rates may vary depending on the dates chosen.
