East Sussex TN31 E-Bike Wine Tour
We meet at 10:00 on a Friday at Rye railway station TN31 7AB where you will be paired-off with an e-bike for the day (hired for your use from Rye Bay E-Bikes). During the first 20 minutes or so, you will be given firm instructions on the capabilities of an e-bike and if you have not ridden an e-bike before, for safety’s sake it is worth taking a test ride to familiarise yourself.
Like all our UK single-day wine tours, please note we can only operate with a minimum of six (6) adult participants, normally starting at 10:00 and finishing at 17:00 hours, at the latest.
Once everyone is ready, we head off on a circuitous route initially in a north westerly direction (keeping away from main roads whenever possible) to the Oxney Organic Estate, our first wine producer venue, near Beckley for a vineyard tour, winery tour and tutored tasting afterwards.
After lunching there, our next cycle route is quite challenging with more hills than the morning’s run together with some bridleway paths and cross-country tracks – so being quite fit is a key element on this particular-journey (even with e-bike power assistance)! Initially we head in a south westerly direction and later south to Charles Palmer Vineyards, near Winchelsea.

E-Bike Wine Tour
As carrying away any number of bottles you decide to buy from a winery is unsafe or prohibitive on an e-bike, we would encourage you to place an order for home delivery!
