Meet Takaro Trails at their shop in Ahuriri, Napier or they can pick you you from your accommodation. After being fitted with Bikes, information & everything else you need, Takaro Trails will transfer you to the start of your adventure at the Black Barn winery.
Te Mata Estate and Akarangi are very close by so you can start your wine tasting early! From here you enjoy a 16km cycle on the limestone cycle trail following the Tuki Tuki River, to the coastal communities of Haumoana and Te Awanga. The views are stunning as you cycle the raised stop-bank trail and look out over orchards, vineyards and farmlands. Reaching the coast you’ll be ready to taste some more fine wine at Elephant Hill, Clearview Estate and Te Awanga Estate.
If lunch is on your ‘wish-list’ Takaro Trails are happy to assist with reservations at Clearview Estate. Te Awanga also offer the best pizzas in Hawke’s Bay and you can sit outside on their green lawn.
Allow 6hrs for this tour. At the end of the day you will be collected and transferred back to Ahuriri or your accommodation if required.
Why is this Chuffed Worthy?
The cycle trail network through the Hawke’s Bay is outstanding and if you have done it yet, don’t wait. It’s leisurely, relaxed and short distances between points of interest. James from Chuffed did this in 2021 with his family and said we need to find a way to facilitate this for Chuffed customers. So we started working with Takaro Trails and they have been outstanding to our customers. So we are very pleased indeed with how this option is working out for Chuffed Gift recipients.
