We will pick you up from your accommodation in Narooma and transfer you to our office where we fit you out with bikes, helmets etc. We will give you a map of how to get to the Tilba Valley Winery via Central Tilba and Mystery Bay and full pre-ride training. It is approximately a 3.5 hour (12 km approx) E-Bike ride from Narooma to the Tilba Valley Winery through beautiful rolling valleys with stunning countryside. Stop off in Central Tilba and try the delicious Tilba Diary cheeses or the Bates General Store to taste the Tilba Fudge. Stop at the Dromedary Hotel or Sweetwater Restaurant for lunch or get a take away and enjoy a walk on the Bellbrook Loop walk behind the pub. Even the first part of the walk is worth it with incredible rock formations and stunning views over Gulaga Mountain.
The pedal assist advanced technology of our Giant Electric Powered Mountain Bikes means that you can choose individually the level of difficulty for your ride. The electric motor starts as soon as you pedal and goes up to 25 km/hr. You can either ride the e-bike with no assist like a normal bike or full level assist to cruise through the countryside with ease. We are often told by returning guests 'I am never riding a normal bike again. How much are they and where can I buy one from?' - Yes they are that much fun!
The Tilba Valley Winery is nestled on 10 acres of established vines on stunning Corunna Lake just between Narooma and Tilba. Producing grapes for over 40 years they produce Semillon, Cabernet Sauvignon, Reisling, Traminer, Shiraz, and Chardonnay wines. They also have a range of locally produced and unique craft beers.
This is one of the areas best kept secrets. From the minute you arrive at the winery the relaxed atmosphere and the views over the Corunna Lake make this experience one of our most popular things to do.
Enjoy a wine tasting and complimentary glass of wine or beer on us. There is food available at your own cost and tables cannot be reserved.
Arrange a pick up time prior to departure and we will come and pick you & the e-bikes up from the winery so that you can fully enjoy the wine tasting experience without having to worry about the ride home.
There is no better way to explore the area around Narooma and to re-connect with nature than by e-bike (electric bike). Immerse yourself in nature with minimal impact by simply cycling through it. Our e-bikes can either be ridden like a normal bike with no assist or adjust the assist to give maximum help. You still have to pedal but the assist helps you to get up hills easily allowing you to enjoy the scenery and ride further. We also have padded gel seats for extra comfort. The e-bikes are so much fun.
One of the most popular trails to ride is the spectacular Narooma to Dalmeny Coastal Trail where you may spot seals, whales and other incredible marine life. There are many more trails around the hinterland of Narooma to suit different fitness levels and time available. Did you know there are trails to Central Tilba, Mystery Bay and around the Wagonga Inlet? The e-bikes make these trails so much easier and are an eco friendly way to see the beautiful scenery.
