Pedal to Produce

A feast on wheels

A romantic gourmet cycling adventure made for two. The Rutherglen leg of Pedal to Produce is the ideal way to while away an afternoon in the countryside. Take in the gentle ride at your own pace, stopping at iconic landmarks, historic cellar doors, and secluded pit stops. Be sure to start with empty baskets and bags as you’ll be picking up delicious treats and treasures along the way.
