We like watching the Tour de France. The cute bike short-clad men (ahem) we mean, the gorgeous countryside makes for a great spectator sport. But while the world watches overseas action, there are biking events almost every week in Sonoma.

The Farmhouse Inn, an award-winning Four Diamond luxury boutique property in Sonoma County wine country decided to celebrate cycling in a big way so they combined their popular "Sip 'n Cycle" biking package with their "Free Tuesday" special to create the new “Bike Like a Local” package.

The Farmhouse Inn has partnered with local bike touring company Adventures in Cycling for this package. Normally, midweek room rates in a king room at Farmhouse are $495-$795 depending on the room with a three day stay. And Tuesday nights are free. So you're saving 1/3 on your stay right there.

But, you can also save on the room with the free Tuesday deal and then choose the bike tour you want(which includes lunch). You can try the challenging GranFondo course or a leisurely biking tour through nearby wineries. This tour is usually $120 per person for a group tour or $150 per person for a private couple's ride. So you can save an additional $240-$300 on the bike tour.

And at the Farmhouse it's all about the amenities and service, so they have a total of six concierges on staff willing to share their favorite wineries in Napa and Sonoma Wine country. Visit the spa, or the Sonoma Bath Bar in the lobby and collect seasonal scrubs, salts, milk bath and handmade olive oil bar soaps to take to your room for a luxurious bath after a bike ride. Nightly turn- down service with homemade cookies and milk or evenings with S'mores around the fire pit featuring house made marshmallows and Vahlrona chocolate are just plain fun.In the morning enjoy a complimentary full farm-fresh breakfast with eggs from the owner's ranch, the perfect protein to fuel up for another ride.

You must mention the package when you book. It's valid only mid-week the entire month of July and until August 2nd. Book online or at 800-464-6642.
