Plan for the day
This morning you will be transferred from your local accommodation to bustling Havelock North with its excellent shopping and cafes. The tour operator's rep will set you up on your modern ‘e’ bike and give you a quick lesson on how to operate before leaving you to enjoy the ride at your own pace.
The tour operator recommends visits to Black Barn Vineyard and the Origin Earth Cheese Factory before you join the Tuki Tuki river trail and cycle through beautiful orchard and vineyard country to Black Bridge. From here you detour to visit the coastal communities of Haumoana and Te Awanga where visits to the British Car Museum and the excellent wineries of Elephant Hill and Clearview Estate are popular activities.
Returning to Black Bridge, the trail continues north around the East Clive wetlands. It’s worth taking some time to sit on one of the viewing benches along the coast to observe the many native birds and flocks of black swans which inhabit the area. Refreshments in Clive will fuel you for the coastal stretch with its stunning views of the ocean and Bluff Hill in the distance.
On reaching the outskirts of Napier you follow Marine Parade, lined with the iconic Norfolk palm trees that are so recognised as a symbol of Napier. As you get closer to town you’ll pass by the statue of the ‘Spirit of Napier’, which represents the city rising from the ashes of the 1931 earthquake, and David Trubridge’s magnificent ‘Ecliptic’ monument, celebrating the new millennium. Arrive in the city centre, a world-renowned Art Deco treasure where you can spend some time viewing the distinctive architectural styles before cycling the final 5 km (3.1 mi) to Ahuriri and the tour operator's base.
