About the ride:

With five great and sometimes challenging rides, there is something for everyone. The rides are a 30, 31, 50, 71 or 100 mile scenic ride into parts of Surry, Wilkes, Yadkin and even a touch of Alleghany counties of North Carolina. The ride gets its name for passing several vineyards and wineries in the Yadkin Valley wine region. Then returning to Elkin where showers and a post ride meal are waiting for you and one of the finest wine festivals is going on at the park next to the return area. The Yadkin Valley Wine Festival. ( Entree to the ride gets you a free tasting ticket to the festival. All proceeds go to the Elkin Valley Trails Association ( So bring your bike, a lawn chair or spread and some friends, and join the fun.
