Ride options will be available on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday before heading home. Along each route, we'll visit wineries and breweries and enjoy a few laughs. If you're not a drinker, no worries. Many enjoy this ride without drinking.
Each day includes planned group rides of varying distances. Riders get to choose how far they want to ride each day and return to our home base in Chautauqua, NY each night to relax and unwind. Want a shorter ride? You're covered! Want a more challenging ride? We have your back!
Routes range from 23 miles to metric century distances (62 miles). We'll have an evening social/pre-ride briefing meeting on both Friday and Saturday evening and we'll discuss the ride options available the next morning. This event will accommodate riders of different levels.
Our SAG will accommodate riders by being available for water and snacks on select routes as well as carry any purchases you make along the way.
More details will be released as we continue to wrap up our final arrangements to make our 2nd Annual Wine Tour Rendezvous a ride that will create great memories for you.
Arrival & SAG
There are three arrival options:
1. Arrive early on Friday and enjoy a ride on your own or with the group. The ride departs at 11 am so that gives you plenty of time to travel from Pittsburgh and be ready to roll out on-time.
2. Arrive later on Friday and do a short route to launch the weekend.
3. Arrive on Friday evening by 8 pm when we have our pre-ride meeting and fill you in all the details about Saturday's planned rides.
SAG is limited and offers transport for major mechanical issues and to carry purchases made at wineries along select routes. Riders are expected to be in good physical condition to ride the distances they choose each day. Riders are also expected to know how to change a flat and do minor mechanical repairs, if needed. The SAG can be used for major mechanical issues and it will carry additional water and snacks on select routes. If you prefer something specific for your diet, please be sure to pack what you need.
