Visiting Rutherglen and keen to punctuate your wining and dining itinerary with some fresh air or exercise? Here are three things to try next time you visit.
CRUISE THE REGION ON AN E-BIKE
The cruisiest way to explore the Rutherglen region is on an electric cruiser bike from Rutherglen Radler. Ride the Murray to Mountains Rail Trail and cruise the country lanes between local wineries with ease!
These bikes make cycling a breeze as they assist you when you’re cycling - such as up the hill to Scion's Cellar Door - so you can explore more of the region than you normally would on a standard bike (potentially helpful after you've had a little cheese and wine...?)
You'll find Rutherglen Radler at Caffeine n Machine near the Main St roundabout.
PICK YOUR OWN FLOWERS
Pepper's Run is a micro flower farm located on the outskirts of Chiltern, a 15 minute drive from Rutherglen. Growing with the seasons using organic and sustainable farming practices, Pepper's Run offer a "pick your own" flower experience.
A great excuse to slow the pace, take a wander through the rows and get creative with your own floral composition! Pepper's Run is seasonal, so be sure to check their website for opening dates/times.
BALANCE YOUR WINE SIPPING WITH YOGA OR PILATES
Harvest Yoga is a warm, welcoming and community-minded yoga space. They offer a timetable of hatha, vinyasa and yin yoga including an energising hatha class on Saturday morning if you're in Rutherglen for the weekend.
If pilates is more your jam, down the street you'll find Sublime Pilates, a similarly warm and welcoming studio offering small-group, open-level reformer classes.
