After being picked up at your Adelaide hotel in an air-conditioned vehicle, travel to the renowned South Australian wine region of McLaren Vale, which is about 30 minutes south of the city, to start your guided bike tour.

Hop on your mountain bike and ride at a leisurely pace through the Kuitpo Forest and its Radiata pines and along the Kidman Trail, then stop at two wineries for tastings. (Any bottles purchased at the wineries can be stored in the tour vehicle.) Depending on the time and the group’s interests, there may be additional stops as well. Lunch with fresh produce and other items from local farms is included.

The tour’s final stop is chosen as a group, and can be a visit to a local microbrewery. At the end of tour, return to Adelaide and get dropped off at your hotel.
