Hills Vines and wines by bike

The ONLY wine cycle tour operating in Adelaide. If you see a similar tour elsewhere, they will just be booking our tour! Come along and enjoy a beautiful day of exploring the hills and vineyards of South Australia by bike along sections of the Kidman Trail- and don’t worry, we will take the sting out of the climbs by starting at the highest point in the area and riding downhill. Trips are run on Wednesdays, Fridays & Sundays, with other days by arrangement (no Wednesday trips during off-peak). contact us at info@escapegoat.com.au or call Ian on 0422 916289 for other options and special bookings.

Departure Time Trips run most Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays, (other days available on request.) Pick up from central Adelaide is 9am, and we return by 5pm (Wednesdays not operating between 1 May- 1 October except for private group bookings) What to Bring Comfortable clothing, water, sun cream, swimwear if it's a warm day! Tour Itinerary You will be picked up in central Adelaide and transported to Kuitpo Forest, a beautiful spot above the McLaren Vale wine region. We will provide you with a good quality mountain bike with front suspension & disc brakes, and a helmet if you do not have your own, and we will set off to explore the forest. We regularly see kangaroos and koalas on the ride. Next is a lovely descent down Willunga Hill towards McLaren Vale, and then it’s time for wine tasting! We will then ride through the vineyards and stop at a number of local wineries to sample their fare and perhaps purchase some wine to take home with you. We will also stop for a lunch comprising of local produce along the way. In the afternoon we normally leave it to the group to decide our final visits- maybe a micro-brewery, another winery, a cafe/chocolate stop for a little desert, or if it’s really warm maybe a swim stop at one of the beautiful beaches that fringe the Vale.
