Win a Wine Country Cycling Tour
When you combine beautiful Southern Oregon weather, the fertile grounds of the Umpqua Valley and a cycling tour through quintessential small towns, it makes for the ultimate Adventurecation for anyone who loves to travel on two wheels. Bring three friends and pedal down roads less traveled and meet friendly vintners when you hit the road for a concierge cycling tour of Oregon’s wine country.
Here’s a taste of what you’ll do on your trip:
The Umpqua Valley portion of the cycling Adventurecation starts with a luxurious night at the historic CH Bailey House in Roseburg. The next morning the tour takes off on the Applegate Valley Wine Trail that runs between Jacksonville and Grants Pass. Along the way, riders can stop in the small towns and wineries, like the Schmidt Family Vineyards. The Umpqua Valley is the perfect climate for harvesting Chardonnay, Syrah and Bordeaux red varietals and what better way to try these after a well-earned cycle through Southern Oregon’s prettiest backcountry.
After a gourmet lunch and tasting at Troon Vineyards, continue on to Longsword Vineyard for some afternoon treats. Finally, check out Oregon’s oldest wineries at Valley View Vineyards before parking the bikes for the night and checking into the historic Jacksonville Inn.
After a good breakfast (and perhaps a nice stretch) the next morning, spend your final day touring some of the Rogue Valley Wineries. You’ll stop at Hillcrest Orchard and Roxyann Vineyards for a luxurious lunch and wine tasting to wrap-up a most decadent and well-earned Adventurecation.
