Cycling in the Hunter Valley
If you’re a fan of cycling and wine, you’re in the right place. A bicycle is a great way to explore the Hunter Valley at a relaxed pace, cycling along quiet country lanes like Palmers Lane, which links six cellar doors.
You can target a favourite area in the region and discover cellar doors, galleries and eateries that are off the beaten track or test out the region’s new dedicated cycleway along the vine-lined Hermitage Road from the New England Highway to Broke Road in Pokolbin. It’s due for completion by July 2017 but already has an information bay just south of Old North Road with a regional map, tourist information and picnic tables.
There are several bicycle hire companies in the area, as well as two offering electric bike hire. Saddle up and sip Semillon… sounds sensational.
