Glenn has a good selection of well-maintained bikes available, and it's a fun ride around the Palmers Lane vineyards on a sunny afternoon, mostly on easy trails off the main roads. Glenn himself is a real character - the kind of fun-loving, talkative host that fits the occasion. We had a great day here.

Unreal day - the company are highly accommodating picking you up from your resort and fitting you out with a bike. Really well organised tour with the wineries delivering your purchases so you can enjoy your ride. We got lady cruisers - highly encourage the Mountain bikes for a cruiser day. After a few tasters peddling is quite laboursome! We... More

As it was raining on the day we were supposed to hire bikes, Glenn (the owner) came and picked us up from our accommodation and spent the day driving us around the vineyards. He spent the day telling us about the local area and even about his past childhood girlfriend who just so happened to live in our accommodation. He... More

We were collected from our nearby accommodation and had a good chat about the local area on the way to get the bikes. The bikes were well maintained and we looked over the map of the area whilst sampling some of the wine the Pokolbin Brothers had on offer. The vineyards are not that too far apart and although one...

Loved the bike hire and riding around the wineries. Given a little map that shows you the closest wineries and cycling route to take. Easy and relaxing ride. Any purchases can be delivered to the hire place so you don't have to carry it around. Friendly staff

We booked this experience based on many positive TripAdvisor reviews we'd read. We were picked up at the pre-arranged time from our nearby accommodation and soon had our bikes sorted. We were given a hand drawn map and briefed on which route to take over a chilled glass of wine. We soon discovered the map wasn't to scale but this... More

Grapemobile Bicycle Hire was out first experience of 'things to do' in the hunter. Staff were very friendly, however their overall knowledge of the surrounding vineyards was limited . The first two wineries that were located on their 'hand drawn' map were closed upon arrival . When we finally sweated our way to the third winery we were actually informed... More

We hired the grape mobile bikes for a few hours on a Friday between 1-5pm(didn't book in advance). We took a taxi from our hotel to the grape mobile hire location. We were given a map and told roughly which places were available for us to go and visit. There was two main areas where most winery's for us to... More
