The Big Easy on the Hawke's Bay Trails is back for Easter 2016!
Lock it in your diaries now - Easter Saturday, March 26th. The Big Easy's cheeky little sister, The Little Easy in Central Hawke's Bay will be back as well on Good Friday, March 25th.
The Big Easy 2016 - Easter Saturday - March 26th
The Big Easy on the Hawke’s Bay Trails is the ultimate antidote to all those serious lycra laden cycling events held across the country. The Big Easy ride is 45kms and we encourage you to take all day and enjoy the many tasty Hawke’s Bay distractions along the way.
At 10am Easter Saturday we will ride out from Church Road Winery to hit the limestone off-road Hawke’s Bay Trails. After enjoying 43km of tasty stops riders will finish with a finale party, concert and well deserved wind down at Black Barn Vineyard.
The Clive "Family Start" will be back in 2016 to help little legs (and some not so little legs) make it to the finish line.
Tickets will be $30 for adults and $10 for kids (12 and under) and are on sale now!
Make sure you follow us on Facebook to get the inside word on all The Big Easy info!
The Little Easy - Central Hawke's Bay - Good Friday
Get your legs in shape with The Little Easy on Friday March 25th (Good Friday). This a nice gentle 12km loop along the brand spanking new Central Hawke's Bay Rotary River Pathway was so popular in 2015 we're bringing it back again!
Starting from Russell Park, Waipukurau, riders head off along the northern side of the Tukituki Bridge and follow the signposted loop, finishing up back at Russell Park for some post-ride entertainment and the option to grab a steak sandwich, cold drink or coffee after your ride.
Plus for those keen mountain bikers you can also divert alongside the pathway and check out 17km of Grade 2 – 3 mountain bike tracks.
Tickets are $15 for adults or $10 for kids and include your own 'Little Easy' T-shirt!
