Are you ready to ride? Well, we have 2 days of "easy" cycle fun for you this Easter!

Tickets are on sale now!

Easter Saturday 15th April: The Big Easy 

Saturday April 15th will see us riding out from the Chalk 'n' Cheese in Havelock North, heading out on River Road to hit the Hawke’s Bay Trails.

After enjoying 42km of tasty stops, you will aim to finish at Church Road Winery for the finale party and concert which starts at 2pm (but if you take longer that’s ok, it means you are enjoying all the distractions along the way!).

The Clive "Family Start" will feature again, to help little legs (and some not so little legs) make it to the finish line

Adults $35 and Kids (15 and under) $15. For that you get a seriously top notch t-shirt, concert entry and access to the Big Easy deals on the route so you can stop, sip and sup your way along the ride. 

Transport can be booked to transfer you between the start and the end of the ride, so you don't have to worry about driving.

The Easy Riders set to entertain!

As always The Big Easy ride will end with a concert and this year Church Road is playing host. We are thrilled to announce a stellar line up for this year’s Big Easy concert. Kicking off the festivities at 2pm local talent, Hidden Agenda and singer/songwriter Ian Munro will take the stage and get you on your feet.

This will be followed up by fan favourites Jackie Clarke, Annie Crummer, Suzanne Lynch and Rikki Morris bringing you a special performance of classics with a twist in a high energy performance. They are calling themselves The Easy Riders in honour of all you participants - but don’t expect to see any of them donning form fitting lycra! They will have you itching to be up on your feet dancing the afternoon away.

There will be a range of food and beverage offerings available on-site including beer, wine, non-alcoholic beverages and bites to eat.

Concert tickets are $25 person and are available from Eventfinda.
All registered Big Easy Riders tickets include a concert pass.

Easter Sunday 16th April: The Little Easy, Wairoa

Check the legs still work after the main event with a The Little Easy Wairoa!

This is a cruisy 10km ride along the Wairoa River, starting at the lighthouse and finishing up at Pilot's Hill for some post-ride entertainment with food and drink available.   
A range of prizes will be available to the best dressed family and the best dressed bike. A bike is also up for grabs!

Adults $15 and Kids (15 and under) $10. For that you get a Little Easy t-shirt, drink bottle and sunscreen.

Be sure to make it to Hawke's Bay this Easter. You'll enjoy some great riding around some pretty sweet spots as you take in Hawke's Bay from the bottom to the top!
