Upon your arrival at the shop, you will be fitted to your bikes by the friendly team and given an explanation of the ride directions and map.

Crossing the road to the cycle trail, you cycle along the beautiful coastal path before passing through the Clive Wetlands, home to many different species of birds. The trail is all off-road and flat with the exception of a short 1.5km stretch on a quiet, beach side road.

Towards the end of the trail are four wineries: Beach House (weekends only), Elephant Hill, Clearview Estate, and Te Awanga Estate. There are a number of options for lunch with restaurants at Elephant Hill and Clearview, or for more casual dining Te Awanga Estate offers pizza and platters, or ride a little further and visit the Clifton Cafe at the end of the trail.

The shuttle will arrive at Elephant Hill at 4pm (or as otherwise arranged) and transport you back to Napier.

Get out of the tour bus and create your own journey on this self-guided scenic bike ride to coastal wineries. Spend some time outdoors on the beautiful coast near Hawke’s Bay, riding beachside roads and a cycle trail to four wineries. The wineries are all located towards the end of the trail, so you won’t have to worry about riding bikes while drinking wine. When your winery visits are over, a shuttle takes you back to Napier.
  • A great way to get outdoors during your vacation
  • Ride your bike past coastal wetlands and scenic riverbanks
  • Choose among four wineries to visit at the end of the bike trail
  • Once your ride and winery visits are over, take a convenient shuttle back to Napier
