Bike the Wineries of Maipu
For a great day trip from Mendoza
, catch the number 10 bus and in about 20 minutes you will arrive in Maipu where you can rent a bike for about $30 pesos in one of the numerous bike rental companies along the main crossroads. The company will provide you with a map indicating the wineries, olive oil farm and spots to eat. It's an amazing way to spend an afternoon, pedaling from winery to winery (or bodegas as they are called) down sycamore lined roads, taking in the grapevines and olive trees with the Andes mountains in the background.
