Itinerary:


Valid for 01APR19-31MAR21:
Enjoy a beautiful day of exploring the hills, wines and vineyards of South Australia's McLaren Vale by bike- and don't worry, Escapegoat Adventures will take the sting out of the climbs by starting at the highest point in the area and riding mostly downhill. Guests will be picked up in central Adelaide and transported to the first ride spot of the day, one of our beautiful forests or national parks- exactly where does depend a little of the weather and conditions. Escapegoat Adventures will provide guests with a good quality mountain bike with front suspension and disc brakes, and a helmet if guests do not have your own, and together will set off to explore the area. Regularly see kangaroos and koalas on the ride. Next is a lovely descent down Wickhams Hill towards McLaren Vale, which offers stunning views of the Vale below. Reach the Vale, it's then a short roll to our first stop, and time for a little wine tasting! Then ride through the vineyards and stop at a number of local wineries to sample their fare and perhaps purchase some wine to take home. Normally visit at least 2 wineries on the trip. One of the highlights of the tour is lunch. Next stop at one of our favourite wineries, and after another tasting, sit down for a delicious local produce lunch. Feel free to enjoy a glass of wine from the winery too. In the afternoon, normally leave it to the group to decide our final visits- maybe a micro-brewery, another winery, a cafe/chocolate stop for a little desert, or if it's really warm maybe a swim stop at one of the beautiful beaches that fringe the Vale. Finally, guests will be picked up and transported back to Adelaide. The riding is fairly leisurely and is suitable for anyone who is happy riding a bike on firetracks and country roads. The Escapegoat van can also pick up your wine purchases along the way so guests don't have to carry them.

Important Information:


Valid for 01APR19-31MAR21:
Beginner level mountain biking. The tour ride does vary due to various conditions, but expect some off-road riding, and maybe a little fun mountain biking trails on the first part of the day. The riding around the wineries is mainly on easy gravel roads and quiet backstreets. This tour is not really recommended for children, as much time is spent at wineries.
