Tours Combine Cycling with Craft Beer and WineMay 22, 2019
Cornwall Ontario – Looking for a new experience that rewards not only your sense of adventure, but also your taste buds?
The good folks at Bike Centric have organized three tours of local breweries and wineries, combining their love of cycling with their love of small batch craft refreshment.
“We are avid cyclists who also happen to be big fans of some amazing local producers of beer and wine,” says Joe McNamara, Chief Creative Cyclist with Bike Centric. “The Bike Tours are a way for us to show more people just what this area has to offer.”
Bike Centric has set up 3 unique tours this summer. Each tour will travel a different route, but all will have common elements, such as small groups led by expert guides who have a wealth of knowledge about beer, wine and cycling in the area. The tours include lunch and are supported by a fully stocked support vehicle to transport any purchases made by tour members, aid in any mechanical situations and provide water en route.
