We had a lovely day cycling amongst the various winerys, sampling wines, chocolates and cheeses. The owners were very accommodating, the bikes and lunches were both great, not to mention the couple of glasses we had before setting off!! I would definitely recommend it.

Had a great day on a tandem bike thanks to On Yer Bike. They provided us with a map and lunch- my requested veggie lunch was fab- and we liked how we had a set plan but could do it on our own clock. The cycling was flat but long enough to feel that you hadn't just popped on and off your bike every 5 minutes. You do have to pay wine tasting fees at most of the wineries, but they take that off the cost of the wine if you buy a bottle.... So we ended up buying rather a lot of wine! Luckily it had all magically appeared once we returned back to the winery that On Yer Bike is based at (a very useful service they provide!). Very friendly and definitely recommended.

We met up with some friends for the day whilst they were also touring NZ and opted for the bike tour of the wineries around Hawkes Bay. I can only say it was a really well organised activity and great fun. We were kitted out with bikes, maps and an excellent packed lunch and, before we set out, had our first tasting of the day (with some useful tips on tasting for the novice wine tasters amongst us!). The wineries were easily accessible from the map - no more than 20 mins leisurely cycling between them - and they all had their own style and approach when we arrived. We picked up a bottle or two at each, safe in the knowledge that the On Yer Bike team would follow us around to pick up our purchases, so we didn't have to carry them. Customer service from On Yer Bike was great - easily booked, very friendly and with some help organising taxis to get from Napier to their site. Ten out of ten!

My friend and I signed up for the bike tour while our husbands were off playing golf...we had a little too much fun :) The weather was perfect for a bike tour, the wineries on the map were all terrific, and we enjoyed our picnic lunch! It was probably a little too convenient that they drove behind us and picked up what we bought!! Haha!!

Definitely worth it if there is a sunny day during your time in Hastings!!

This activity was chosen for us as part of our New Zealand Honeymoon by our travel agent. We wanted fun and active, but romantic activities for our trip. The On Yer Bike Winery Tour was PERFECT. The tour had just enough guide involvement, in that they helped you get set up with bikes, provided maps and winery suggestions and started off the tour with wine tasting; but, we also got to set the pace of the trip ourselves since the rest of the tour was essentially self-guided. All of the wineries along the way were unique, and it was fun to interact with each host along the way, and also to taste the differences in the wines they produce. We followed the host's suggestion from Ash Ridge (where the tour starts) and had lunch with beautiful views at Abbey Cellars Winery, where they also have great beer on tap! We also loved the Salvari Estate winery--most unique for sure! Overall, this was one of our favorite activities on the whole trip! Best way to tour the wineries for sure!
