If cycling and tasting delicious wine are two things you’re enthusiastic about, you’ll be pleased to learn that Tour de Vines has launched an epic range of new cycling tours designed to get Australians to exploring.

It’s safe to say that COVID-19 has ignited a boom in cycling with many people ditching their cars for bikes, embracing the natural elements, and exploring on two wheels.

If you’re someone who can’t get enough of this sustainable and healthy mode of transport, but also appreciate a great glass (or two, or three) of vino, these tours are ideal, offering itineraries suitable even for the occasional rider.

“We are super excited to be expanding our range of Australian cycling tours. We’ve seen unprecedented numbers around bike sales and bike riding on the back of the pandemic, and with travel restrictions slowly easing in Australia, now is the perfect time to explore the fantastic cycling options within Australia”.

Damian Cerini, Tour de Vines founder
