At EBWBT, our mission is to lead you to beautiful wine while enjoying a nice, easy bike ride on flat, safe routes.
We love wine, as much as we love to explore cities, in the special ways that only a bike can let you do.
What will you see?
You may see a mix of urban and scenic stretches, depending on our route. We do tours through Oakland and Alameda that feature a bike trail along the beach and views of San Francisco and tours through Oakland and Berkeley that feature the best bike routes and the bike paths of Aquatic Park.
The Oakland-Alameda Tour
The ride starts in historic Jack London Square. Riders meet their tour leader, who will be ready with bikes, helmets, and water bottles.
The first leg of the ride takes us to a scenic Oakland estuary, home to some award-winning wineries.
Then, we cross over a short bridge to the island of Alameda, and take a very pretty, flat ride along the beach.
We lunch along the beach at a picnic area. Among the eats featured: home baked focaccia bread with tuna, chicken, cheese, and other vegan/vegetarian sandwich fillings, organic fruit, and home baked chocolate goodies.
After lunch, we ride to Alameda Point, site of the former Naval Air Station, and home to several more outstanding wineries.
The Alameda ferry brings us back to Jack London Square, where, time permitting, we may visit another winery nearby.
The Oakland-Berkeley Tour
This ride can vary because of the multitude of possibile winery stops but usually features a ride through Aquatic Park and reveals the best and safest bike routes in the Urban East Bay.
