Get on your bike or hire one and go for a ride
The Barossa Valley Council has a fabulous new facility, smack bang in the centre of Tanunda. It is located next door to the Visitor Information Centre on Murray Street, making it very handy for tourists to the region. Stop here with your own bike or to hire a bike for the day, or even a week.

The Barossa now has a sealed walking and cycle track that spans 40 kilometres from Gawler to Angaston and connects the main towns of Lyndoch, Tanunda, Nuriootpa and Angaston. The council has initiated "Barossa By Bike", where around 30 local businesses have pledged their support to cyclists. This support includes free bike parking, water and some have toilet facilities. Some of the bike-friendly businesses are providing discounts to cyclists which may mean a cheaper meal or wine. See the link here for cycle hire times. You would have to email or call for the cycle hire costs. Please note hire times are closing at regular business times, so check the website.

At the Cycle Hub, you can hire a bike for a few hours or a day or longer, then pick up a map of the trail and go off for the day. Riding from one town to another through the vineyards and staying overnight would be a fun way to spend a weekend.
