USA - Touring Nappa & Sonoma by bike ****


Based on a recommendation from a friend we decided to include a bike ride during our visit to the USA in 2012.  A company called Napa Valley Bike Tours arranged our tours which consisted of arriving in Napa where we were accommodated for two nights followed by two nights in Sonoma. I believe the company has since ceased trading but there are similar companies in the area. We hired a car in San Francisco and drove to our destinations.   The package consisted of excellent quality accommodation, a guided cycle tour each day and dinner each night in superb restaurants.  The riding in Napa was on both road and mountain bikes and involved main and secondary road travel plus vineyard trails to let us visit vineyards. Sonoma touring was on road bikes and again visits to vineyards to taste wines.  We also had time in Sonoma to do our own exploring. All up a wonderful experience.
