We selected the afternoon tour - which took around 4 hours. The tour leader was relaxed but very knowledgeable about wine and the surrounding area, the cycling was the right relaxed pace and the two vinyards that we visited were welcoming and offered a good range of wine tastings for around $10!

We took a most excellent afternoon bike tour through a few wineries close to Sonoma. Our guide was very knowledgeable - she had lived in Sonoma 30 years and clearly knew all of the locals. The ride was a wonderful, leisurely pace with only a few very minor hills up to the various wineries. We also visited a great cheese... More

What a great afternoon we had on this guided bike tour in Sonoma. It turned out my wife and I were the only ones in the group on this Thursday afternoon. Our guide Phoebe offered a few suggestions before we set out and we ended up at two very interesting vineyards (and one craft brewery) where we tasted some great... More

Okay, your headline seriously cracked us up. Here's hoping readers understand you were having a bit of fun with that description! Our guided tours are limited to a maximum of 12 guests, though often times groups are smaller. On days where we have 4 or fewer guests reserved for a particular tour, we will often leave the itinerary open for... More

My wife and I rented bikes from Sonoma Valley Bike Tours & Rentals - we did not take a tour, just ventured out on our own. Riding in Sonoma felt a bit like riding through a typical suburban neighborhood - until we got out to the vineyards. I wonder if renting from the Yountville location would have been a better... More

Hi, Chris, I'm sorry that you were somewhat disappointed with your biking experience in Sonoma. The saddles on our Specialized bikes are from their patented ergonomic Body Geometry line. As a cyclist myself, I can attest that whenever I take any extended break from riding, the first day back in any saddle is a little rough. Thus, for most casual... More

My husband and I were excited at the prospect of riding fat-tire bikes through the vineyards of the California wine country, and we were not disappointed! In fact, the whole enjoyable day exceeded our expectations in every way. Our affable, witty, and knowledgeable guide, "North," kept us entertained as we pedaled along the paths among the growing grapes, visiting three... More

We had a great time on the afternoon tour. We met some great people who we ended up spending the rest of the evening with. We were able to visit 3 wineries, lots of shade, pretty easy ride. We actually rented bikes on our own the next day because we thought it was such a great way to see Sonoma.... More

This is a great way to visit a couple of wineries in Sonoma. Beautiful streets and downtown to see. Sufficient shade on the routes too. I would do it again.

I highly recommend using Sonoma Valley Bike Tours for rentals in Sonoma. The bikes we rented were all in great shape (almost brand new), comfortable, and perfect for taking in a beautiful day in wine country. Jay and Lyn at the shop were extremely helpful and aided us in setting up a perfect itinerary for the day. Our group of... More

We were very happy with our rentals from Sonoma Valley Bike Tours. The bikes were current year Specialized Roubaix, a great bike for casual roadies and perfect for some hilly rides. We took one of their maps for the Carneros ride, a nice up and down route with very little traffic. On the second day we downloaded a map from... More

Thorne was our guide, and this activity was the highlight of our trip. My wife isn't much of a biker, but we went slow enough & the 3 wineries we saw were all fairly close, so we didn't get sweaty & gross. Getting to bike inside the vineyards was amazing. Tasting the grapes off the vine & spending as much... More
