Open Group Tours
If you are looking to meet other visitors in the area and participate in a social activity, then an open group tour is the best option. You will visit various wineries in a larger biking group led by your guide. Martin’s Bikes and Mendoza Bikers Day Tours are good options if you are first time visitors to Mendoza and want to see the area outside of town.
Couples, families, or groups of friends might prefer to have a private Mendoza bike tour. This way, you can personally plan what you want to see, like smaller family-run wineries or special wine and food tastings. EcoBikes Wine Tour and Mendoza Wine Bike Tour have private options with personable guides who have a wealth of information on the production of wine in the area.
Organized tours might not be your thing, so luckily there is the option to rent a bike on your own and ride to the wineries with a mapped out tour. You can take your time, choosing how long you want to stay at each winery and the pace you go at. Bikes and Wines, Mr. Hugo’s Bikes, and Baccus Vineyards Biking are rent out bikes from Mendoza city and provide maps and general information on the area and wineries.
