South Australia’s Riesling Trail has been named a top ten bike-friendly wine route. It’s about time. 

There’s something pretty magical about vineyards – and there’s something even more magical about bikes. Now we all know South Australia is one hell of a place to ride a bike. And we all know South Australia has delicious wine. Isn’t it time South Australia yelled a little louder? Shouldn’t there be hordes of European Cycle tourists coming to  taste our hearty Shiraz?

Well it looks like we’ve finally garnered some attention.

In a recent article in The Guardian – the Riesling Trail in the Clare Valley was named as a top ten bike-friendly wine route.

It’s about time.

And while we’re on the topic of wine and cycling, why not come and join us for our upcoming Wine, Wheels & Whiting event?

South Australia is well known for its gorgeous vineyards, great seafood and strong cycling culture. We’ve decided to bring all of this together in the Wine, Wheels & Whiting bike ride – where riders can pedal all the way from the Clare Valley to the Copper Coast – and be entertained by a weekend of festivities put on by the locals.

The Bike SA weekend ride kicks off with entertainment, food and wine at Clare, the evening of Friday 11 September with a dinner in Clare.

On Saturday there are 3 great rides to choose from as riders make their way from Clare all the way to Wallaroo on the Copper Coast.  Or take part in the Family Ride along the Wallaroo foreshore and have a gourmet feast after the ride at the Coopers Alehouse
