We are contracted with 5-8 different wineries in the area and we visit different locations based on day of the week and time of day.

Our scenic tours don’t have a fixed age but the guest must be big enough to fit in our DOT certified helmets. If Younger guests are wanting to tour with us and they have their own DOT certified helmets, we would be able to transport them. Give us a call to make sure we are aware of the younger member joining us!

We have redesigned the sidecar and made it the first and only tandem sidecar in the industry. We are able to carry 2 guests in the sidecar comfortably. With very large groups, we are able to transport a guest behind the driver as well, making it possible for 3 guests to be carried on one bike!

Our height max in order to fit 2 people comfortably would be 6’8” and preferably a smaller guest. Our weight limit for the sidecar to transport 2 guests would be a combined weight of 650lbs

For safety reasons, they are not allowed, but we have done multiple photo shoots with pets in the stationary bike!
