Owner description: 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. Takaro is the Maori word for 'play' so put some fun into your Hawke's Bay stay and get out and about by bike!

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 when the vines and trees are in full leaf. The estuary, rural and sea views were great not to mention the great Hawkes Bay food and wine sampled? Thanks Jenny.

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.

My wife and I took the Havelock North and Cape Coast Wineries tour and it was a great experience, we were picked up at our hotel and we were taken up to the black barn winery and we started from there, it was perfect for a one day activity bikes were in excellent condition and we loved the wine tasting through all the wineries our guide recommended. Thanks for such a nice experience!

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, vineyards,orchards, farmland. The accommodation was superb with a yummy breakfast each morning to fuel us up for the day. And each night a pick of restaurants to choose. 180kms all up so we felt very pleased with our efforts (shortcuts were available)
Good on you guys for providing a great service to suit all types.

We did the "Havelock & Cape Coast Wineries Cycle" on Saturday. Jenny picked us up from our Hotel & drove us out to Black Barn (the first winery). She set us up on our bikes with great detailed directions for our 16km ride. It was such a great day, the cycle trails were well set out and it was an easy ride, which was good as I hadn't been on a bike for many years! The wineries were very informative and the tastings were great. The bikes had panniers so we were able to buy some wine and take it with us. We started around 10.30am & Jenny picked us up at "Clearview" our last winery where we had a lovely Dips Platter to finish off the day around 4pm.. Highly recommended as a fabulous experience when visiting the Napier..
