We did a 30km cycle down the coast from Napier to Clifton. We had pre-booked and everything was ready for us on arrival. We had a great afternoon on the trail which was well-marked and was off road for 95% of the journey. What we really liked was that we were picked up at the end of the trail and... More

Four mates and I have just finished the Hawke's Bay Highlights tour taking in Havelock North and Taradale and the surrounding vineyards. Marks out of 10, we give it 11. Had the best time and loved combining the easy cycling through beautiful countryside (long stretches along the ocean, others along safe bikeways through green farmland) with visits to some of...

Takaro Trails organised our three-day tour of the Hawkes Bay region. It was my first two-wheel adventure and, not being a regular cyclist, I wasn't sure what I was up for. The trails are well sign-posted (plus you get detailed directions from Takaro each morning), mostly flat, off-road or on quiet country roads with only a few bovines to dodge.... More

I had a really great 3 day ride organised by Takaro Trails. All the details and excellent support including a super bike were provided by Jenny and her team. Most of the trail is on good dedicated cycle ways and the rest on quiet roads. It combined ocean rides with gentle hills and provided great cafe stopovers, especially at the... More

This was the most amazing tour. The staff were incredible, knowledgeable, super friendly, helpful and most of all flexible. They catered beautifully for everything we did and left a lot of decisions up to us which was great. The high standard of dining and accommodation exceeded our expectations. Also, the bikes were well maintained and easy to ride. You do... More

Had a fantastic time cycling the three day tour. Great accommodation and excellent organisation of the entire event. Surprised myself doing 90km after not having biked any distance for many many years. Great bikes in good condition and easy to cycle trails. Can't wait to come back and do some more in summer and we will have a different outlook... More

I believe the cycle trails are one of the Hawkes Bay's greatest assets for visitors. Very impressed by the quality, friendly and efficient service provided.

Thankyou to takaro trails for providing us with a fantastic 3 days cycling around hawkes bay. Even our 14 and 15 years loved it. Our bags were taken to our accommodation each day and all we had to do was follow the map and instructions to get there. Very easy to follow and lovely flat paths with picturesque scenery, rivers,...
