Grab your helmets and head up to Napa for a fun day with friends.
For my birthday this year, several friends brought their bikes up to Napa where we all met at Yountville for a 16-mile loop. We hit five wineries throughout the day, and it was an absolute blast. My husband and I even rented a tandem bike (we rented from Napa Valley Bike Tours)—contrary to my fears, even after five wineries we didn't have an accident and arrived back safe and sound!
There are plenty of great routes and so many options for wineries to choose from; the trick is to stay to your planned route so you complete your loop in time. As tempting as it is, if you stop at every winery you'll never make it all the way back without having to turn around.

Harvest season in Napa Valley
September and October are harvest months and one of the best times to visit the wineries in Napa and Sonoma. A unique way to see Napa is to bike through the wineries! Start by renting one for the day at Napa Valley Bike Tours in Yountville.
Given the warm 70+ degree weather and the refreshing grape-kissed breeze that flows throughout the valley, who can say no to breezing through Stags Leap District on a bike along the 16 mile Silverado trail? Not to forget the free workout you are going to get alongside all the wine tasting. The wine will make the miles seem a lot shorter!
