What if the day of my cycle tour is an extreme weather day?
In the event of extreme weather which affect safety we may decide not to cycle.
As a replacement for the cycle other activities will be offered such as tours of vineyards, visits to breweries, local cheese or chocolate producers and/or art museums. The wine tasting part of the tour will proceed unaffected. There would only be a handful of occasions in the year when conditions would be unsafe to cycle.
Weather in Victoria is very changeable, even if the forecast says showers there is often some sunshine and opportunities to cycle without getting wet.
