Winery Cycle Trail #1

winery cycle map 1 - 21.9KMS

Our view of 'visiting some wineries' is not trying to squeeze too much into one day.  Dr Google says that this route will take you about 1½ hours, but if you're out for a leisurely ride you may stretch that somewhat. [We have not road tested this route on a bike... so please direct all complaints to Dr Google, c/o Google].

Whether by bike or car, we think this will be a nice pace for the day. 

The suggestion would be to head for Heifer Station first - better to do that on fresh legs - and then back track to Swinging Bridge.  There are a few hills on this road, but that's what the wee gears are for.

Once you are back at the outskirts of town, most of the undulation is behind you and heading to Philip Shaw, is relatively flat [well mostly...].  It's also closest to home after your cheese platter and wine tasting enjoying the fresh air at Shiralee Road.

Then it's home to chill out and participate in some very learned discussion about the merits of what you've been tasting. The good news is most wineries will send you your purchases, so you won't need to cycle around with your ever burgeoning collection of bottles.

Please provide any feedback, advice and insights so other guests can benefit from your experience.
