Fun ride around McLaren Vale
We thoroughly enjoyed our mountain bike ride with Ian - on fire trails and single tracks - stopping in at Gemtree winery for a delicious lunch. Thanks for a fun day Ian!

A 'cruisy' day out
Mar 2021
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!

6 out of 5... THE BEST
Our excellent guide Ian ensured everyone enjoyed the trip. The day started with an easy cruisy ride in Kuipto Forest. We then went to the famous MacLaren Vale and visited two famous cellar doors. Biking through the scenic vineyards is certainly the best way to experience the wine region.

Too Easy!

First time doing a wine and bike tour. It was an amazing experience and worth every minute. The bike ride was easy and the scenery was beautiful. The wineries and microbrewery we visited had amazing wines and beers. 5 star experience for sure.

Great biking experience

Had a brilliant Mountain Bike experience with Lee.
He is very experienced and knew the best tracks. Especially the downhill ride was very good. Some nice wineries and especially the last stop, the brewery was very welcoming.
A nice experience and very well recommended.

Must do tour!
Jan 2021 • Solo
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 :)

Escapegoat Ebike tours
Jan 2021 • Couples
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.

Soooooo much fun.....
Thanks so much to Lee, our guide and Ian for being so patient while we navigated border closures. We used the E bikes and normal mountain bikes and had a wonderful day. Hugo Winery put on a lovely share platter and we enjoyed all the wines we tasted along the way. Would highly recommend
