This cycling tour in the Barossa and Clare Valley lets you discover the incredible food and wine highlights of South Australia at your own pace.

Gently cycle your way to famous venues including Maggie Beers, Penfolds and Jacobs Creek as well as some hidden secrets along the way.  Dine at award winning cellar doors including Skillogalee and O'Leary Walker's in the Clare Valley.

TESTIMONIAL
We were 4 ladies from Christchurch New Zealand. This bike ride through glorious wine country, Barossa, Clare Valley and McLaren Vale would have to be the best we've ever done! Everything including the itinerary, the bikes, food and especially the knowledgable, friendly and fun guy our tour guide Paul, was outstanding. We loved it 😀 We thoroughly recommend this tour!
