Napa Valley Bicycle Tour

Thanks to the scenic country roads winding through the region, bicycling is a nearly perfect way to get around the Wine Country (the lack of designated bike lanes notwithstanding). Whether you're interested in an easy spin to a few wineries or a strenuous haul up a mountainside, there's a way to make it happen.

Cycle shops in most towns will rent you a bike and helmet for the day. In addition to providing maps and advice on the least-trafficked roads, staffers can typically recommend a route based on your interests and fitness level.

If you're concerned about the logistics of your trip, consider joining a one-day or multiday bike tour, which includes lunch, a guide, and a "sag wagon" in case you tire before you reach your destination.
