Wonderful day, I'll admit it has been years since I had riden a bike. I approached this adventure with some reservations. I booked an ebike, I think this helped to boost my confidence as well as repeating the mantra " I can do this" .

The tour is well organised with fantastic senery especially in autumn with the amazing colours. The wineries we visited were fantastic.

Our tour guide Steve was awesome, he encouraged us and shared his knowledge of the local area.

New to the city & first time experiencing the wineries Adelaide has to offer - this cycling tour was the perfect way to do it. Our booking was made last minute and this was facilitated easily & professionally by Ian who was our guide for the day also. He provided a thoroughly enjoyable day for everyone of all abilities and he was extremely helpful, especially when my tire punctured... twice! Great chat, great wine and a memorable day - will be back again for more Escapegoat experiences!

A high calibre, well organised and relaxing bike tour. Ian and his assistant Steve went out of their way to accommodate everyone’s skill level and age group that was especially evident for the mountain track ride through a magnificent section of the Onkaparinga Gorge.
Especially appreciated was the inclusion of local high-quality businesses within the tour: the wine tasting and magnificent platter lunch at Gemtree Wines and the additional wine tasting at Kangarilla Road Wines.
A personalised small group tour through areas only doable with quality bikes made for the task. Highly recommended.

This tour was the highlight of my trip!! Fabulous way to explore the McLaren Vale region. Ian is very knowledgeable, professional and super friendly. We had to move thr tour by day due to the heat wave and bush fires; Ian was very prompt with comms, very responsive and made it super stress free to move it around :)

What a great tour! Ian was incredibly knowledgeable (and is the guy to talk to if you're interested in renting a mountain bike around parts south of Adelaide/Flinders University). He did a good job balancing new cyclists with those of us who wanted to ride a bit more. The winery lunch was stellar. Totally worth doing as a way to see a few wineries and move while you're at it.

Fantastic day cycling ! So much variation with tracks meandering through the Kuitpo forest. Up & down hills, over creek beds & through canopies of trees. Add McLaren Vale winery & brewery visits with an amazing lunch at an organic, biodynamic winery. Our guide Ian, was very knowledgeable & supplied quality ebikes and equipment. It was important to Ian that he tailored the tour to our requirements hence the communication prior was forthcoming. We highly recommend Escapegoat mountain bike tours.

The lunch and tasting at Gemtree wines was great, the wine chat with the owner of Kangarilla Road Winery was exceptional. Avoiding the rain whilst riding showed our excellent tour guide Leigh had a connection with the supernatural. A great day with some very good company. Thanks again Leigh.

Lovely day out exploring an area I hadn't seen much of by bike. Steve was a fantastic tour leader. Can recommend doing a bit of riding beforehand if you haven't done much lately.

We had booked this tour with Escapegoat on the basis of recommendation by friend who visit McLaren Vale frequently. We were not disappointed!
Ian is a brilliant host and the bikes first class. If you like good food and wine whilst enjoying the great Australian outdoors this is a must!
Additional bonus is any goodies you buy along the way will be transported back for you in the van.

Amazing day! The mountain biking was the perfect amount of fun + adrenaline! The day was organised really well with more biking in the morning and the wineries later. Ian also went out of his way to pick us up in the morning so we didn’t need to drive afterwards. Definitely recommend this trip and it was the perfect way to see mclaren vale countryside. Delicious lunch and wine in beautiful surrounds!
