The Leelanau Trail rolls through the countryside with several different great spots to soak in nature and with great opportunities for birding. Join us for this truly unique wine country experience in partnership with the Detroit and Grand Traverse Audubon Clubs. Roll down the paved Leelanau Trail to our favorite birding spots and then find yourself at boutique wineries later on in the day. We will pick up your wine and bring you lunch to enjoy overlooking the vineyards.
On this tour you will casually roll down the Leelanau Trail making detours to hand selected birding hot spots hosted by Grand Traverse Audubon Club. After a morning of birding we roll to Shady Lane Winery for lunch and wine tasting overlooking the vineyards. Then you continue down the trail to another boutique winery to finish out the day. The tour starts in Traverse City and finishes at our shop in Suttons Bay. The tour is led by our knowledgeable local guides we ride as a group down the paved scenic trail passing farms, orchards and vineyards along the way. We ride about 3-4 miles in between each stop. Our support van is always near by to pick up wine purchases or for rain rescue and just about anything else that may come up. The total tour is about 15 miles of casual riding. Want a boost, upgrade to an ebike for a little extra fun!
