We had a lovey day cycling 35kms along the shore and through the vineyards to our lunchtime destination. We were picked up from our accommodation and given good quality bikes and helmets and a map to help us navigate. The weather was good and it was great fun with a wonderful Lunch at The Black Barn Vineyard with wine tasting... More

Malcolm from Breckenridge lodge recommended that we went for a bike ride through the Gimblett gravels vineyards just outside Napier. He organised Takaro Trails Cycles to come and pick us up and drop us off at the end of the day. What a brilliant suggestion! Takaro comes with the right size bike and pre adjusted seats. They drop you of... More

This company which hires out bikes for various lengths of time is very well organised, professional and reliable. We have biked with them several times and each time was excellent. The bikes are well maintained and support is available if required. The cycling tracks in the Bay are very flat and suitable for any level of cyclist. It's beautiful to... More

We had a fantastic day cycling from Ahuriri to Havelock North - approximately a 35km ride on bike paths covering coastal scenery, villages, community parks, rural properties, commercial orchards and wineries. We stopped for a well deserved lunch at Chalk and Cheese Cafe which was an added highlight to our day already so full of highlights. The suburb of Havelock... More

Easy cycling, great wine. Great door-to-door service. Bikes are already adjusted to your height and ready to go. Takaro collect your wine for you, so hassle free day. Please not that the wineries only really offer cheese platters to eat, so it would be a good idea to take a packed lunch, as sampling about 7 wines per winery!

We chose Takaro Trails over the other cycle companies because of their pick-up and drop-off service. The cost of the tour was slightly more than other ones, but worth the extra c. $25 per person to not have the bother of how to get to and from the wine region. We chose the Leisurely Gimblett Trails tour, which was a... More

We did an independent trail - rented a bike and followed the map. We did the coastal/ estuary trail. The view was great and manageable for a noob cyclist like me. Many parking lots available near Takaro Bike rental. Bikes are in great condition too.
