If you just can't wait until next year, you don't have to! The Hawke's Bay Trails are free and open 365 days a year. Pick your own route or choose from one of four themed rides. There are 200 kilometres of on-road and off-road trails where you can see everything from mountainous lookouts and beautiful lowland rivers to endangered wetland wildlife and the sweeping Hawke's Bay coastline.

Easter 2013 saw hundreds of cyclists take on The Big Easy, the ultimate antidote to all those serious lycra laden cycling events held across the country. The Big Easy ride is 43kms and we encouraged you to take all day and enjoy the many tasty Hawke’s Bay distractions along the way.
We started Easter Saturdays event at Church Road Winery and meandered along the trails via Westshore, Ahuriri, and Marine Parade. From there riders could wobble or weave their way via Clive towards Havelock North, finishing up at Black Barn Vineyards for a concert from 2pm with Chatchy and The Beat Girls and a well-deserved dose of food, drink and prizes!
Free and easy Easter Sunday was your choice – start at the Farmers’ Market in Hastings or take in the Wineries Ride, the Puketapu Loop or the Kidnappers Coast.
