Fun cycling

Very comfortable bicycles! Scenery was lovely and it was an easy ride. We cycled over the bungy bridge and watched some people jump. Passed alpacas and a gorgeous little white cottage with beautiful garden on the way. Staff were kind, helpful and accommodating, as our trip had to be delayed because of rainy weather. Communication with Hannah and Hywel was excellent. Our final destination was the Gibbston Winery where we celebrated with wine tasting and cheese platter, delicious ?

Thanks Mary - great to hear everything ran smoothly for you - even though the day started out a little wet! Please we managed to get you out with a slightly later start. Cheers the Around The Basin team.

E bikes are the way to go

Well worth a day to explore the region on trails you can't do or won't appreciate in a car. Make the trip to Chard farm, easily the most picturesque of all the wineries we visited and it's staff were super friendly. The wine pick up service is a nice touch.
