Wild Lyle Wine
Meeting in Hood River and promptly loading aboard the Sol Train (12 passenger van) we have a short and scenic 15-minute drive towards Lyle, Washington. Unload the E-Bikes and zoom our way towards a quiet, bountiful and award winning winery.
Enjoying the family vibes as we taste a wine flight and charcuterie platter atop the vineyard views. Difficult to leave a good thing but we must roll down the hill towards Cor Cellars. Greeted with warm hospitality and a quick tour of the modern facility while sipping the sweet nectar. Just down the road and a unique route, rich in history, to visit our final stop at Syncline Winery. There we relax in the vineyard garden, sample the award-winning wines and enjoy a picnic lunch from locally sourced bakery/cafe.

What to Expect:
This is our signature tour, the one that leaves you breathless from the scenery, not from the uphill.
As we begin pedaling away from Hood River, the propulsion of an E-Bike instantly creates a satisfying exhilaration of minimal effort and maximum fun.
Let us ride together along the Historic Highway (no vehicles), stopping along the way to admire the scenic vistas and sharing 'Gorge' history. Depending on wind, weather and season, we choose from U-pick orchards, small hike to a waterfall and wildflowers or the overlook of Mount Hood and the Hood River Valley. A tour that creates lasting memories and has you wondering why there isn't an E-Bike in your garage.
We ride at a moderate pace as the tour guide shares with you the local history and geological wonder. Half of this tour stays in the shade during summer and is on a bike path (Historic Highway) with no vehicles offering a peaceful and enjoyable experience.
