Itinerary Description

Our San Luis Obispo wine country half day bike tour highlights the Edna Valley, a delightfully compact wine growing area located just south of SLO. Ringed with dramatic hills and closer to the ocean than Paso Robles, the wineries of the Edna Valley produce excellent Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs. Our wine country bike tour meanders through rolling terrain of this picturesque vineyard filled valley and has ample opportunities to taste wines at such award winning wineries as Saucelito Canyon, Kynsi, and Chamisal. We finish our cycling at Baileyana Winery, located in a restored historic schoolhouse, and enjoy a complimentary wine tasting along with a gourmet picnic lunch. While there are some short hills on the San Luis Obispo wine country bike tour, there are also plenty of scenic wineries along the way to tempt you with a quick tasting break, making this tour the perfect choice for cyclists who want to maximize wine tasting opportunities along the bike route.

Comparison to Other Bike Tours

The Biking: Paso Robles Wineries Half Day bike tour is our easiest wine country bike tour, but visits fewer wineries along the regular route compared to our Biking: San Luis Obispo Wineries Half Day bike tour.

The Biking: San Luis Obispo Wineries Full Day tour explores the same general area as the San Luis Obispo Wineries Half Day tour, but explores additonal wine country areas in the southern part of the Edna Valley and has numerous options to ride even more miles into beautiful ranch and canyon country.
