Where to Bike With Montague: Napa Valley

Where to Bike with Montague: Napa Valley, California

Montague Bikes continues its “Where to Bike with Montague” series a little closer to home.  Napa Valley offers some of the most beautiful landscape (and the best wine!) in the country and, thankfully for us, equally amazing cycling.  Whether you’re looking for an organized tour that provides bikes, lodging, dinners and wine tasting, or looking to get out and explore Napa Valley on your own, this beautiful area of California has what you’re looking for.

NapaValley.com makes it so easy to find out more information about lodging, restaurants, and things to do in the area.  The area’s most famous feature is undoubtedly its wine.  The landscape is soft, rolling hills covered in vineyards and narrow roads (pictured above) which make it a great area for biking on any level.  A relatively small area-only 30 miles long-contains over 45,000 acres of planted grapes.

It can be a daunting task trying to find the right place to stay during a visit to Napa Valley.  There are tons of bed and breakfasts, hotels, inns, and cottages begging to be rented, but the Adagio Inn Bed and Breakfast ranks about them all.  According to the locals,   this is where you want to stay.  It is situated in the heart of historic downtown Helena in a quiet neighborhood of the Napa Valley and just a short walks from great bars and restaurants.  Also, on your way to the Adagio Inn, you will pass over 400 wineries!  “As innkeeper/owner Polly Keegan says “People seem to love it … especially the comfortable king beds, fine linens and expansive, elegant surroundings“. Aveda amenities are in the bathrooms, sterling silver and Italian dinnerware in the breakfast room, and comfy rockers on the porch, looking down upon a really lovely garden,” according to a blog on NapaValley.com.

After a long bike ride through the vineyards, relaxing on the porch swing with, what else, a glass of wine is the perfect way to unwind.  If guided tours aren’t your thing, self-guided tours and bike rentals are also available.

There’s light trail riding through Napa Valley, so the X50 or X70 would be perfect for this area.  The FIT would also be great if you want to do some long distance riding through the vineyards.

Wherever you are in the world, don’t forget to send us your stories about how you use YOUR Montague Folding Bike for a chance to be featured in our newsletter or here on our blog!

Have a great long weekend and, as always,

Ride Safe!
