Explore Wine Country off road and up close with Napa Valley Bike Tours’ unique Cycling in the Vineyards program. The leisurely six-hour guided tour (weekdays only) follows dirt paths through three Carneros winery properties, such as Bouchaine, Domaine Carneros, and Etude, with wine tasting at each and a midday catered lunch. You may even spot heron and egret, from nearby San Pablo Bay National Wildlife Refuge. Bonus: A van will pick up any wine purchases, so you don’t have to lug bottles back on your bike. napavalleybiketours.com.
