Hawke's Bay is located on the east coast of New Zealand's North Island. Hawke’s Bay Trails are part of Ngā Herenga’s 23 Great Rides of New Zealand and one of the most popular.
It’s known for its beautiful scenery, relaxed cycling, world-class wine, great hospitality, rich cultural history and numerous outdoor activities.
The Trails are made up of three different experiences: The Water Ride (imagine riding beside Ocean, Estuary and Rivers), The Wineries Ride (think wine country with vineyards and cellar doors) and The Landscapes Ride, (envision expansive views including Cape Kidnappers, Te Mata Peak) and the only place to expect a few hills is on the Tukituki Loop, with the views making up for it.
The popular trail from Ahuriri to Bay View is concrete, about 7km in length and suitable for all recreational uses including hand bikes, wheelchairs, recumbent's and trikes. It is an easy, flat ride to the end of the concrete. After the concrete, the trail is only suitable for standard bikes. Some gates on lime sand sections, cross a working farm - sheep and cattle may be present. This section from Onehunga Rd to the airport will be wet after rain, due to the high water table - avoid for several days after rain.
