A few things to keep in mind for each ride:

  • Bring a bike! Very important component of a bike ride.  All participants must bring their own bike to the meeting point at the designated time.
  • Helmet. Safety is always at the forefront of anything we do.  Wearing a helmet is law, so please ensure that you bring yours with you.
  • Stay hydrated. Yes, we are going on a wine tour but for the rides in between stops you will need to stay hydrated.  Bring a bottle of water to keep on hand while you ride.
  • Dress appropriately. It’s summer. It gets hot sometimes. Take a quick peek at the weather before heading out to ensure you’re wearing something suitable for the type of weather expected.
  • Have fun! We are pretty excited about these rides and are getting a great response from everyone. We encourage everyone to come out, join us and have a great time!

WindsorEats will keep all participants informed of any changes and provide detailed itineraries as the dates approach so don’t forget to provide us with your email when you purchase tickets.
