|Wanderlust Wining Bike Tour | Stefani Jackenthal
|From Monday, September 17 2012 |
To Thursday, September 20 2012
Four days and three nights of spinning and sipping excitement awaits you when you join former All-American triathlete, adventure & wine journalist and author Stefani Jackenthal for a bike and wine tour through some of Colorado's most epic landscapes. Based on her book Wanderlust Wining, Stefani will lead 20 thirsty, fun-seeking cyclists from Palisade to Paonia to Carbondale to Vail. You'll spend each day pedaling past verdant vineyards and climbing the scenic switchbacks of Colorado National Monument and Mesa Pass, then refuel and kick back each evening with farm-to-table suppers paired with tantalizing wine tastings.

Crafted for riders of varying levels, each day offers a long and short ride. The sag wagon will transport personal items, snacks and cyclists who prefer to ride short days. Every evening, Stefani will lead wine tastings that are paired with multi-course meals. We'll visit a few wineries along the way too—post riding.
