I recently visited Suttons Bay and rented a couple bikes from them. They had super friendly staff and a great selection of bikes.

We rented bikes and did the self guided tour today. Bikes were great and the staff was friendly. Loved that they delivered lunch halfway through our day and that they picked up our wine as the day progressed. We would do this trip again in a heartbeat.

Excellent winery-bike tour of the Leelanau Peninsula wineries! Self-guided, which is awesome because you can ride and drink at your own pace. Lunch is provided, as well as wine purchase pick-up and repairs/service if needed. They will help you plan out your route and tailor your day to your interests. I would highly recommend this for active travelers and people... More

My wife and I did the self guided tour. We visited 5 wineries. One of the trip features is the staff will pick up you wine purchases. This was super convenient and allowed us to buy whatever we wanted. Near the end of our trip a small rain storm made the roads wet. They found us and gave us the... More

We did the self-guided wine tour using a tandem (as my wife's riding ability is limited). Check in was smooth, best tandem bike I've ever seen. Helmets, storage on the bike for camera, filled water bottles included. Ordered our lunch before we left. All very good. The tour was fun. A warning that the outbound is uphill and, on this... More

We had a delightful ride through the fields of wildflowers on the former railroad right-of-way connecting Suttons Bay to Traverse City. The bike rental was convenient-you only have to cross one street to get to the trailhead.

My wife and I seldom ride bicycles, but because there was so much to see on the Leelanaut Trail, we decided to rent bikes from Suttons Bay Bikes. They had great bikes, were very helpful in getting us started, and were very fair in the rental fees. It was a great experience to ride the trail through some beautiful countryside.

We did the self guided wine tour and really enjoyed ourselves. Although it did feel like we peddled up hill both ways at times! We are from the relatively flat lands of Indiana and were not used to Northern Michigan "rolling" hills. The TART trail we rode one was wide and had very pretty scenery. Since it was early fall,...

My husband and I are not frequent bikers, but are interested in doing so in the future. Our test drive was to go with our best friends and family members (avid tandem riders) and do a self-guided tour of the local wineries. This help limit how much you could drink and drive (literally). Buying wine was easy, as they pick... More
