Event: REI Temecula Wine Country Bicycle Tour

November 18th, 2011

We’re just a few days away from one of the biggest eating holidays of the year- Thanksgiving! Do you find yourself dreading the post-holiday weight gain? Don’t fear- REI has the perfect way to burn off those extra calories while experiencing beautiful Temecula Valley wine country: a bike tour!

Happening on December 10, the Temecula Wine Country Bicycle Tour leads you on a trip through the back roads of Temecula by mountain bike so you can see the gorgeous vineyards and lush surroundings up close. In between riding there will be stops at three wineries where riders will take a break for specialty food and wine pairings, ending the day with a gourmet lunch. This trip is one for all the senses- smell the cool breezes, taste the wonderful wines and culinary offerings, and feel the excitement  of Temecula wine country.

All you have to do is show up- the cost covers the tour, food/wine tastings, lunch, transportation to and from the meeting point in San Diego, Novara bikes, helmets and professionally trained cycling instructors. Want to pick up a few bottles along the way? Van support is provided throughout the tour so you don’t have to worry about carrying anything back.
