We rented two bikes via our hotel (they came with helmets and a chain/lock) and had an excellent experience.

We originally planned to book the bikes for one day doing a self-guided tour but had such fun that on the afternoon of our first day we asked to extend the rental for another day (organised via the hotel) which Baccus were happy to accommodate despite the short notice.

On the first day of rental we realised while cycling between two wineries that we had a puncture in one of the tyres. With a full day of wineries to visit we were worried that this would ruin our plans but after mentioning the problem to the guard at our next winery (Alta Vista Winery) the guard got in touch with Baccus and they came out and changed the tyre while we were having our wine tasting. This meant we had zero delays and could continue on with our tour as planned. We were so happy and impressed with the service!

We would definitely recommend using Baccus if you are looking to hire a bike in the area.

This is a great place to rent bikes to explore the wineries in Lujan de Cuyo. They were very responsive and honored our reservation. I chose to plan our own route and now recommend working with Baccus to do so as they know how the timing works. Definitely be sure make reservations as many wineries will not let you on the grounds without one!

This was our favorite experience of our entire Argentinian trip! The bikes worked great, and Lujan de Cuyo is an excellent area for safe and easy biking. Baccus mapped out our route for us and made a lunch reservation at the most wonderful spot so we were all set to go once we hit the road. There are more than enough vineyards in the area to get an excellent feel for Mendoza wine country. 10 out of 10 recommend!

Apparently a reservation is needed and you need to be there before 2 pm to start biking, which is nowhere mentioned on the website…

We arrived at 2.30 pm and it was closed. The workers who were performing maintenance said that it would open again at 3 or maybe 3h30 pm. We waited and waited, asked a couple of times and every time they said they would open soon. At 4h20 pm the owner arrived and explained us that we could only rent bikes between 10 and 2, because between 2 and 4 she is out to provide technical assistance for the bikes. Returning the bikes is possible between 4 and 6, but apparently the wineries close around 4 or 5. When we said we were waiting for 2 hours, she was not kind at all but referred us to the website and said that a reservation was necessary. How could we know, since this was nowhere mentioned on the website? And there was also no sign anywhere at the venue. We thought it would be fine to bike between 2.30 pm and approx 6 pm, because our organized tour the day before followed the same times. Now our entire afternoon was ruined.

Just awesome - turned up around 1pm hoping for 8 bikes and we were lucky - we got 8 super comfortable Trek bikes and a great map and some insider knowledge. Easy once on the road to communicate with What’s App (and a flat tire at a vineyard was fixed and sorted easily - so grateful). So worth it and the people so friendly

Good bikes, map supplied, and they also recommend best vineyards to visit and a lovely vineyard for lunch.
The location is a bit hard to spot as they are on a corner set back from the road and there is no sign on the roadside. Hire cost was very reasonable.

Emailed this company the day before to reserve x2 bikes where they replied and confirmed our reservation. We caught a 40min bus out to the bike rental shop to find a note on the door that said "Wait for me. Gone for 20mins". We waited outside the shop for 1.5 hours. Nobody retruned and we were unable to hire any bikes. This is unsatisfactory service. Unable to recommend this company.

We went with a group from a hostel in Mendoza, took a bus out to the place, got the bikes, about 8 of us in the group, took a bit to get everyone with a working bike then on our way, the map was poor and not very well detailed, we never got to the first winery directly although it was all fun, Not all the streets are marked and some are a different name on either side of an intersection, some no signs.
Sadly the 3rd was very frustrating as it was next to the bike shop yet showed 3 blocks away on the map,, wasted an hour messing with this only to go to the bike shop and have them take us there, very friendly nice people, in the end there was a tiny vague arrow we did not see that should have been clear, 3 of us looked over the map 10 times !
It was covered with other text, looked like a road not an arrow, the extra time made us late for the 3rd place, we ended up missing out on lunch which was a bummer as we were a bit tipsy, dehydrated and very hungry ! It was siesta time so nothing was open, part of the group went on as they found the 3rd without issue. 4 of us packed it in.
We just gave the bikes back and took the bus to the city again as we were tired after riding an extra 5k with no luck, we rode about 15 km and did 3 tastings, 85 degree day so very nice but hot in the sun, the last place was very small and interesting, took a bit to cool off and get into the tasting.
For others ask questions and make sure you know exactly where your going as the 1st winery did not even have the address posted or a sign, it was tucked into an alleyway where we figured we were lost but by checking street numbers we figured it out. The famous Italian man Pattie was a nice gent but sadly poured oxidized wines. It was free so I did not say anything. He is very famous and well respected, think we just got wines that had been opened for too long, 1 was an 2004 cab that was quite brown. Charming nice man though with a great smile. He did the entire tasting. Honored to have met him as I asked a wine shop after about the oxidized wine and they said he is an ikon of the history of Mendoza, anyways delighted to have shaken his hand.
We laughed about the issues finding the first place and headed out for the 2nd Lagarde, again somewhat lost by the map and found it by only adding about 5 minutes of extra riding, this place turned out to be a gem, the lady that did the tour spoke perfect English and was very well educated on everything about vineyards and the wines, one of the vineyards is over 105 years old ! Went into the vineyard for about 20 min then to the tasting area which was outside in the shade, magical setting. Best wine by them was 2011 Cab Franc. I bought one for 150 pesos which then refunded our tasting fee, the first wine was a white sauv blanc with muscat, very floral and expected it to be sweet, it was bone dry, one of the best whites I have ever had, everyone in the group perked up when this was served, all the other reds were very good, they had people dining which looked very nice as it was outdoors.
Wish we had the energy to go to the others, the bikes were iffy and not very comfortable, gear changing did not always work, brakes were just ok.
Sorry to these people but all of this is true, I would tell others to rent from them but take extra time with the map and test your bike for a block or more first. No steep hills to climb just gentle slopes that are pretty easy going.
Enjoy its a magical trip with nice scenery

They provided a map for visiting local wineries, and called the wineries in advance to schedule our arrival.

A tailored, self guided bike tour of leafy lovely Chacras, a neighbourhood south of Mendoza... This is the MUST in the area. I was nervous to bike as I wasn't sure what the streets & traffic would be like, but they gave us a very very clear map, with excellent instructions about streets that are safe and streets to avoid, a great itinerary based on our tastes and time with a varied selection of wineries. They arranged all our reservations and gave us great options for lunch spots. There are many complaints about the bikes but the honest thing about Chacras is that there are so many quality wineries in the area that your whole distance during the day might be 15km on flat quiet paved streets and a few gravel driveways. That's really nothing! (You can go much much further if you prefer, but we visited 4 wineries in that distance, and with that many tastings in that heat, it was perfect for us). You can spring for the nice Trek upgrade bikes if you like but honestly, the regular bikes were totally fine (my gear changer didn't work so well, but again, FLAT streets). Go to Lagarde, it was beautiful, the wines really special, and the staff are so knowledgeable.
