Description:

"This will possibly be the most fun you will ever have on a bike"...

"This will possibly be the most fun you will ever have on a bike"

All of our biking tours are self-guided as we like to offer you the complete freedom to choose for yourselves which of the 17+ cellar doors you would like to visit whilst out here in Renwick.

To ensure you make the most of your precious time, we are on hand to help you plan your day based around what wines you like, how far you are happy to bike and where you fancy stopping for lunch. You won’t be under pressure to keep up with anyone else who may be starting at the same time as you - you can just take it easy, go at your own pace and your visit to each cellar door can be as long or as short as you want.

We take our host responsibility very seriously and want you, as well as everyone else around you, to stay safe. This is why we like to offer you FREE PICKUP AND DROP-OFF from your accommodation and that way you don't have to worry about drink/driving or risk riding out from Blenheim on the busy state highway 100km/h roads.

Our package includes - a choice of step-through retro cruiser bikes, including tandems and trikes with baskets on the front, hi-vis helmets, panniers that carry 4 wine bottles, a bottle of spring water, detailed winery map plus a full emergency backup service.

For those with families we have tow-alongs, trailers & child seats too if required (all free of charge).

If you want to have some laughs and get the chance to sample some beautiful wine and food, just give us a call as we would love to help make it happen for you. Cheers Steve and Jo

Great moment, super service, great explanation and advice. We really enjoyed this day. But know that you won't have the time to do all cellar doors. Usually you can visit 4 to 5 cellar doors but it worths it.

We had a brilliant day out and managed to get to six vineyards with lunch at Wairo River which was very tasty. The owners are very accommodating pick you up and drop you off by mini bus where you are staying. You get a great briefing of the area and vineyards and the bikes have bottle carriers. Need to come... More

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our day with Wine Tours By Bike. It was a fun and easy way to visit several wineries outside of Blenheim. What a great company! Prompt, professional, and friendly - yet laid back and easy going. The entire experience was very enjoyable - I highly recommend it!

We booked a non-standard tour as our ferry arrival time was too late for the normal start times. Steve and Jo were very rapid in their response to our original query as to whether this would be possible, and couldn't do enough to be of assistance. They picked us up immediately we arrived at our accommodation and swiftly set us... More

Jo picked us up from our accommodation and was lovely. Great start. We chose our bikes, had a winery briefing and were off, we loved it. We decided to head out 'yonder' first and then ended up at wineries close to to the bike drop at the end...we thought this was a good strategy..so much fun. Bikes were easy to... More

Money absolutely well spent. Collected from & returned to our accommodation. We had a fantastic day; we cycled around at least 7 wineries (Bladen, No 1, Whitehaven, Wairau River, Nautilus, Huia, Framingham) for tastings + a gorgeous lunch stop at Wairau River. A brilliant day, absolutely recommend Wine Tours by Bike for an afternoon of Marlborough wine tasting at its... More

This tour had been recommended to us and we weren't disappointed. The sun shone all day. We were picked up in the morning at 1030 for the 11am tour. We had chosen a tandem bike. Before setting off Steve and Joe made sure we were adept at using same. Cycling helmets and all safety aspects covered. Bikes in good condition... More
