Even diehard �do-it-yourselfers� should consider a few important logistics before deciding to rent bikes and tour totally unsupported.For starters, Napa Valley is a protected Agricultural Preserve and as such, the wineries within this pristine area are prohibited from serving or selling food outside of the context of an educational food-and-wine pairing experience. You will also find that delis and markets are few and far between once you�re out bicycling within the Ag Preserve. On any one of our signature routes, there is generally just one deli along the way; as you can imagine, it�s not unusual to encounter a 30-minute wait (or longer) to have sandwiches made-to-order at these relative oases.And if you�re planning to purchase wine during your bike ride, carrying it while biking can pose another obstacle. Even if you bring a backpack, you�ll risk damaging your prized finds by exposing them to heat.With all this in mind, you can improve your experience exponentially by choosing a Self-Guided Bike Tour. You�ll still pedal at your own pace, stopping at wineries you�ve chosen to visit (we can help if you need suggestions!); but, you�ll enjoy the added conveniences of having your wine purchases picked up for you and a delicious box picnic lunch delivered to a winery* with a picnic area along your route or a local park with shaded picnic tables. *Wine tasting appointment required when you will be picnicking onsite at a winery.It�s the fool-proof way to pull off a perfect day of biking to wineries �on your own� � with just the right amount of support!
