One of the reasons why I created this blog was to reiterate what our ebike riders experienced. We’ve only had positive feedback from ALL of our guests who tend to come back with stories of their *electrifying* journeys on the ebikes in Napa, Yountville, St. Helena and Calistoga (yes, we had a couple of determined New Yorkers in their 60′s who rode all the way to Calistoga via Silverado Trail to visit a vineyard! I will eventually write a post about that soon!). Just recently, we’ve had a couple get engaged on our egreenery bikes (check out the huge bling on our Facebook page) – had a couple ride their bikes 2 days after their Napa nuptials and had a wife who was FINALLY able to ride with her bike-enthused husband!
Over the fantastic Memorial Day weekend, we had a fun couple from Miami, Florida, who went all over town looking for Change of Greenery. For some reason, they thought we were located at a different hotel and their concierge had called me to ask where our location was at. Thirty minutes later, a couple was at my door wanting to reserve 2 ebikes for the following day after their 5:30am balloon ride.
They arrived at 1pm the next day and they came back 7 hours later elated! They had told me that they had trekked to one of our partners, O’Brien’s Estate Winery, where they had delicious wine tastings and even got a private tour of the vineyard from Bart O’Brien himself. Mr. O’Brien has an amazing IT (Information Technology) past and has an incredible love story to tell. I won’t blurt them out online, you’ll just have to find out for yourself about this individual by visiting him and the winery himself. Impressed by Mr. O’Brien, his passion for wine and their love of Seduction, they signed up as Wine Club Members!
After O’Brien’s, they got their 2-for-1 wine tasting at another one of our Napa Valley Green Card partners, Domaine Chandon. After Chandon, they headed to the town of Yountville where they had wine tastings from Cornerstone Cellars and ate at Bistro Jeanty. They raved about their ham sammich and said it was sooooooo scrumptious and delicious! They made their way up to Silverado Trail and came back to The Napa Valley Marriott Hotel & Spa to return the ebikes.
They told me that they had so much fun on the ebikes that they winded up losing track of time! Well we are glad you did! Thanks to Jenn & BJ! We hope you make it back again soon and we’re glad we helped make your trip so memorable!
