Starting and ending near the iconic Art Deco city of Napier, this fun-filled and easy-going circular trip is suitable for a variety of riders. The flat and wide, mostly seaside trails speak to beginners, families and, in fact, cyclists of all abilities who wish to discover a fertile and tranquil landscape dotted with wineries, coastal communities, historic Maori sites, and enchanting tourist attractions.

You’ll be spoilt for choice with the selection of vineyards or nearby diversions that you can tailor your own trip around within the detailed descriptions provided at the outset. The beauty of the self-guided tour is simply that you can guide yourself with the aid of experienced local knowledge, and make the most of your holiday time, doing the things you want to do. Ride past kite surfers, fishermen and white-baiters, immersing yourself in this unique and fascinating environment as you watch native birds and flocks of black swans meander through their day.

Embrace the strong viticultural heritage of the area: renowned names such as Elephant Hill, Clearview Estate, Moana Park, Ngatarawa Gimblett Gravels, and The Mission Estate populate the region and the three-day itinerary as you bike up to their cellar door for your tasting delight. If you’ve had your fill of wine, there’s always the option of visiting the classic kiwi pub, The Puketapu, for a change of pace (and alcohol)!

Other potential highlights of this fabulous tour include visits to The British Car Museum, Silky Oaks Chocolate Factory, or Birdwoods Gallery and Sweet Shop. Cycling through the incredible apple orchard and vineyard country and peacefully soaking up the superb scenery is the main course here on this menu of remarkable variety and tranquillity. Discover the secrets and charming ambience of this beautiful coastal region as you explore New Zealand's 'food bowl' and prolific wine growing landscape in the mesmerizing setting of Hawke's Bay.
