Self-guided Wine Biking Tour Marlborough

This is a must do...
I arrived with a list of instructions of places my friends wanted to visit and within 10 mins Jo had arranged visits, booked lunches/ dinners and tastings for us. Steve came to collect me from my airbnb as well. We had a fantastic day. Bikes are in good condition, helmets and maps provided. I would also say Jo & Steve’s B&B looked just amazing (Hillsfield House!). Thank you for such a great time!

Superb day out
We had a brilliant day out cycling around the wineries. I only booked the morning of our tour but by 10.30 we were picked up and after a comprehensive briefing we’re on our way. Great to be able to go at our own pace. Lovely day out which we will remember forever. Highly recommend.

Great bikes, Wines and hosts!
Great bike tour and very well organised by hosts Jo and Steve! Nothing too much for them! Would definitely come back as the experience by bike is so much nicer vs being in a van!

Marlborough Bike Hire Blenheim  |  Wine Tours by Bike

Time to explore and discover, taste and indulge all whilst biking your way around Marlborough’s wineries & Renwick's boutique cellar doors

Starting from our base in Renwick (12km from Blenheim), you are going to find yourselves right at the heart of Marlborough wine country with at least 14 boutique cellar doors, many located beautifully close to us, easily reached via flat roads and along safe bike-paths. Your first tasting could be within 2 minutes of getting on your bicycle.

self-guided biking wine tour, bike rental Blenheim

Even though we have the word “tour” in our name, when you hire a bike from us, rather than being made to go to wineries chosen by us and then guided around as part of one big group (where there is always that feeling of pressure to keep up with others), we give you the complete freedom to go off on your own and choose how you spend your time.

This is independent / self-guided biking at its best!!

We will be on hand at the start to pass on our local knowledge and offer suggestions to help you, but you are the one who decides how far you want to bike, you set your own pace and you decide if you want to stop for a sit-down lunch or if you just prefer snacking on cheese platters as you go.
This is your chance to explore and discover how unique and truly individual each winery is as they talk you through their “tasting flight” explaining how they make their wine and tell you about the history of wine making in Marlborough. WINE TASTING & CHARGES.

All our bikes have baskets on the front as well as unique wine bottle panniers on the back to carry any delicious purchases that you might make, and if you find you buy more than expected, we also offer a free collection of any wines (or gifts) bought during the day.

You will also be covered by our emergency backup service, so if anything happens to the bike ie chain falls off or you get a puncture, we are but a phone call away.

This will probably be the most fun you will ever have on a bike, so all you need to do is choose a start time from the list below that works for you, let us know where you are staying so we can come and collect you, then leave the rest to us 😊
