Visiting wineries by bike

My wife and I are planning on spending two nights in Kelowna on the way from Banff back to Vancouver. We'd like to spend the full visiting some wineries. Can anyone suggest where the most wineries easily accessible by bike are and also where a good hotel to base ourselves would be with easy access to the wineries? Many thanks in anticipation!

hi

on the south east side of Kelowna the Manteo and El Dorado will get you to biking distance of some wineries

on the other side of the bridge in West Kelowna you have the Cover resort

each locations has hills to climb to get to the wineries.

Yes, unfortuneatly, while its fairly flat down the main line of the valley, the wineries are mostly up on the slopes on either side. I believe the densest concentration of wineries is in the Oliver area.

Naramata also has several wineries in a small area, and you can also access the KVR there. (Kettle Valley Railway - hiking/biking trail converted from a railway.)

Thanks again for all your responses. We stayed at the El Dorado (preferring the Arms wing, very nice) and cycled to Summerhill, Cedar Creek and St Hubertus. It was a very enjoyable day and I would recommend doing what we did with the one caveat that Lake Shore Road can get busy at times and so isn't the nicest of rides. The city centre is also 15 minutes by bike from the El Dorado.
