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 it up for you and have it waiting when you return.
This was amazing... they fitted us with bikes and helmets and sent us on the easy riding path. It was largely flat, but felt more downhill on the way back, perfect for those not in the best of physical shape (see photo). Warning: Black Star Farms is an expert level ride once you get off the path!
The deli lunch was not typical. It was a gourmet feast (more than anyone could eat) and the picnic basket presentation was top notch. Shady Lane Cellars and that lunch make a perfect setting for a wedding proposal.
The self-guided tour was $59 pp and was worth every dime if you plan on buying more than a bottle of wine and having lunch. You won't find a better lunch along the trail. If not, you can rent the bike for the day for $30 and bring you own lunch to save a few bucks. Note bikes have a carry bag that could possibly carry one bottle of wine if you are careful.
