East End Bike Tours
What better way to tour Long Island’s wine country than in the fresh air, getting exercise and enjoying scenic views of Peconic Bay and its surrounding vineyards? East End Bike Tours offers Long Island wine country bicycle tours from their home base in Mattituck.
You don’t have to byob (bring your own bicycle.) They have a range of bikes to choose from, including tandems and hybrids. Choose the most comfortable for you, because you’ll be covering about 13.5 miles during the course of the 5 hour event. The terrain is mainly flat (phew!) with rests in between. You’ll ride with a knowledgeable guide who will illuminate points of historical and architectural interest along the way while also providing information about the vineyards and wineries.
The Signature Tour is $224 and includes a gourmet picnic lunch and all wine tastings. The A La Carte Mid-Week Escape or Weekend Tour is $158 with extra charges for lunch and tastings, if desired, and starts at 10:00 AM on July 1. And everyone who participates has to be 21 or over. (It’s all about wine, after all!) For more info, visit their website or call 888-978-7014.
