Cycle the Hawke’s Bay Trails riding our bikes

Hawke’s Bay has the largest network of easy cycle paths in the country. Built as part of the New Zealand Cycle Trail project and representing three rides within the network, there are over 200 km of flat, smooth trails.

They run beside the Pacific Coast, up and down three major rivers and connect wineries and cafes close to Napier and Hastings.

These easy trails are great to ride any time of year, and riding them you will see everything from mountainous lookouts and beautiful lowland rivers to endangered wetland wildlife and the sweeping Hawke's Bay coastline.

There are three distinct cycling experiences - the Landscape Ride, the Water Ride and the Wineries Ride:

  • The Landscape Ride explores the picturesque coastal communities of Haumoana, Te Awanga and Clifton, which border the coastline of the iconic Cape Kidnappers. Riders will also enjoy views of the impressive Te Mata Peak and expansive ocean vistas (Te Awanga Cottages are located on this ride!).

  • The Water Ride is flat, easy and perfect for families.  It provides panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean and includes the Ahuriri Estuary, a sanctuary for endangered wetland wildlife.

  • The Wineries Ride is a relaxed ride that covers the wine-growing areas of Bridge Pa, Gimblett Gravels and the Ngatarawa Triangle.  The trail is dotted with numerous award-winning wineries that afford plenty of places to stop and rest along the way.
