Brilliant Bike Trip

We did the Five Day Easy Explorer and loved every day. The bikes were great and the itinerary gave us some nice cruisey days, with a few hills thrown in on Day Four. The bike path network around Hawke's Bay is great, so it's easy to add in a few little detours if you want to. We'd thoroughly recommend this trip.

Fantastic Experience

We did the five-day Easy Explorer ride around Hawke's Bay and had a great time.
We had a few days of heavy rain and [the tour operator] even contacted us to offer alternatives to riding in the downpours. We chose to ride in the rain and had a great time, with quite a few experiences in the rain and then in sunshine!
We thoroughly recommend this ride and [the tour operator].

Fantastic Five Days

(Review obtained from Trip Advisor)

Our five-day ride was well organised by friendly, helpful staff. We were supplied with good bikes that were well suited to the ride on excellent, generally flat trails with great scenery. The riding instructions were clear and easy to follow and we stayed in excellent accommodation. No problems with carrying our luggage – it was all done for us. Really enjoyed the ride. Thanks [tour operator].

Had 5 days away, 190 km of fabulous scenery and great trails. We were able to adjust our pick up times when necessary and nothing was too difficult. Thanks so much.

Wonderful week spent cycling Hawke's Bay region

Six of us (three on e-bikes) had five great days cycling the trails. Rest day after three days was a nice break. The scenery was spectacular, and we were so lucky with the weather. Jenny and Bruce were so helpful with everything, airport and accommodation transfers, their support the whole time, choice of accommodation places, information provided, bag transfers and recommendations for meals, etc. Everything was made so easy with all they did for us, including all the pre-trail communication. Have been recommending to others. Thank you Jenny and Bruce.

Thank you [Roar Adventures], your service was excellent in every way, so thank you and I would recommend you to others. The cycling [on the tour] was absolutely lovely and a perfect choice for us. [The tour operator] was great too. The accommodation was great including a pre-tour stay at Napier Seaside Hotel in Ahuriri.
