Takaro Trails, self guided cycle tours of the Hawke's Bay Trails, 187km of off road cycle trails which form part of Nga Harenga, the New Zealand Cycle Trail. The trails are the perfect way for visitors to visit our world famous wineries, enjoy some gentle exercise under sunny skies and explore our stunning scenery at their own pace.

There were 14 of us in the beautiful Hawkes Bay for the weekend and this was definitely our highlight. They made it so easy for us, and were fine with us making a change to our finishing point when we got stuck at Elephant Hill enjoying the delicious wine and food.

While my husband toured the area in vintage cars, a few friends and I enjoyed our bike ride with Jenny of Takaro Trails. Jenny is a wonderful guide and her passion for the area and for biking is evident from the moment you meet her. The gear is all first class and the bikes comfortable. Our trail from vineyard to...

Thanks Takaro Trails for providing us with a great 3 days of cycling. Excellent service, well maintained and suitable bikes, all the assistance with maps, advice etc. Combined with sensational trails, weather and Hawkes Bay countryside, wines and food. Thoroughly recommend Takaro Trails for anyone wanting to cycle the Hawkes Bay.

After all the Hawkes Bay food and wine we needed exercise. Takaro cycles sorted us out with good quality bikes and plenty of personal guidance as to good routes. Very friendly team.

Jenny of Takaro Trails could not be faulted. She arranged our 5 day cycle tour perfectly and when we did have a slight problem (handlebars too low) she personally turned up with replacement bikes. Her attention to detail; water bottles, luggage pickups, dining suggestions, selection of accommodation according to our tastes, all done with a minimum of fuss and all... More

Thank you again for organising a great bike tour for the Lincoln reunion ites… we all had an amazing day with lots of laughs along the way. I really appreciate you being able to source extra bikes at the last minute. The attention to detail was really appreciated - cold water bottles on our bikes etc.

Takaro Trails was super friendly and easy to work with. We rented bikes for the family, including our 12 and 8 year old. I was particularly impressed when they offered to pick us up if the trip got to be a bit much (we toured on our own). We didn't use the pickup, but almost needed it and were grateful... More

This day had everything! Started with a cool little market at the first vineyard. Then rode along the trails on comfortable bikes to the sea and along the trail to 3 more vineyards. Had a fantastic lunch with super service at Clearview. Ended up lying in the sun telling yarns and relaxing. Such a brilliant way to unwind and enjoy... More

We recently completed the diverse 5 day tour. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience! Jenny and her team provided outstanding service. The tour was extremely well planned and provided a sample of all the Hawkes Bay environments from coast, estuaries, wetlands to farmland and orchards. A great mix of bike trails and quiet country roads. The picnic lunch we were provided... More
