Even though we are still waking up to morning frost in the Napa Valley, spring is really just around the corner. It will soon be time to dust off your bike, tune it up and head for the hills. Nothing gets us more excited at Velo Vino than spring time in the Napa Valley. Not only do we get to release some great new vintages of our Clif Family Wines, but we also get to see our cyclist friends pop in for a visit.
This spring we will once again be coordinating weekend group rides twice monthly from Velo Vino. The rides always begin and end at Velo Vino and typically range from about 30-40 miles. The rides start on Saturdays in late April/early May depending on weather. More information will be posted on our web site soon.
If you are visiting from out of the area and want to enjoy Napa Valley by bike, consider one of our bike rental packages. We team up with the pros at Calistoga Bike Shop to offer two bike rental options from Velo Vino. All bicycles are delivered to Velo Vino the day of your ride by Calistoga Bike Shop and they will pick them up when you are done. These unique packages include one of our signature espresso drinks and a Clif Bar pre-ride and our Le Maillot Jaune VIP wine tasting experience post-ride. We offer a High Performance Road Bike Package for $110 and a Cruiser Bike Rental Package for $65.
Like this idea for touring around the Napa Valley? Just give Calistoga Bike Shop a call at 707.942.9687 and let them know you want the “Velo Vino Package”. They will take great care of you. Whether you are a new rider, avid cyclist, local or visiting from out of town, we hope to see you, your bike and your tasting palate at Velo Vino this spring!
