    We got great bikes and helmets, we were given a map and set off. Fantastic cycle paths and we stopped at two vineyards. The cycling was very easy and the wine delicious.

    We had a great day on e.bikes cycling round the wineries. Roger was amazing! He picked us up at our motel and dropped us off at our first stop armed with maps, water and advice. Nothing was a problem. Best wishes with this venture Roger! We’ll be back for sure.
