Here’s a note we received from Myriam who took our Wine Country tour. As you can see, even the French love Oregon!
Here are a few pictures I took on July 24 when I was biking with Pedal Bike! I keep a very good memory of this tour among the vineyards.
The French people to whom I showed the pictures here were impressed at seeing such nice and orderly vineyards. But I would add that not only the landscape was nice in Oregon but the people very friendly.

The view from Penner Ash Winery
We had a great tour in wine country on July 4. 8 people all jumped into the Pedal van and headed down to Yamhill county under perfect skies for a ride through the lovely countryside followed by wine tasting at Four Graces and an incredible lunch at Penner Ash. Here’s what one of our guests had to say:
Thanks again for the awesome bike tour Saturday! The ride was cool, company even cooler, and now I’m left wanting to visit Portland again just so I can see more. There’s no better way to see the wine country than on a bike. It’s so much better than looking out car windows, and of course the sampling at the end was a nice reward for a few miles of pedaling (or coasting). Seriously, thanks for being patient with me, too. People bike in Birmingham, but not like they do in other cities, so I’m not an avid biker by any stretch of imagination. I appreciate all the tips you gave me – they made a huge difference! Betsy and I laughed many times at my little off-road adventure and you asking, “Are you going off-road on purpose?” If only…

Betsy and I drove out to the gorge and waterfalls at your suggestion, and we were AMAZED by how beautiful everything was. That was the perfect end to the perfect day!
Thanks again for a wonderful time. Betsy and I both enjoyed you and the scenery. The tour money was well spent, and we plan to do others if we’re out that way again. Oh, and trust me, I’m telling my friends they’ve got to go to Portland, and when they go… they’ve got to check out a Pedal Bike Tours ride. 🙂
I’m attaching a few pictures of our ride (and a couple from the gorge) in case you want any of them for your site.
