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 rode out from the Havelock North Domain, heading out on Te Mata Road to hit the limestone off-road Hawke’s Bay Trails. After enjoying 45km of tasty stops riders finished at Church Road Winery for the finale party and concert.
The 2014 concert featured Kiwi music legends Annie Crummer, Rikki Morris and Jackie Clarke, plus local favourites Naked Gun and Power.
