Ahuriri to Cape Coast (26 km, 3 wineries)
- Duration: 6 Hours (approx.)
- Location: Ahuriri, Napier
A very scenic coastal ride of 26kms, finishing at our 3 favourite Hawke's Bay wineries. Great for those wanting to cycle for 2-4 hours but also enjoy a winery or two!
Departing the port village of Ahuriri you cycle around the port to the Napier CBD, a world renowned Art Deco treasure. Spend some time enjoying the beautiful Art Deco buildings before cycling along the Marine Parade pathway with spectacular views across the Pacific to Cape Kidnappers.
You'll come to Ātea a Rangi - Celestial Star Compass at Waitangi Regional Park, a great place to stop and look at this fantastic installation. Learn about how māori navigators used the stars to sail their wakas (canoes) to New Zealand. Cycle on through the wetlands, home to numerous black swans to the village of Clive, a great place for refreshments. Leaving Clive, you arrive at Black Bridge and the mouth of the Tuki Tuki river. Cycle through these two quaint coastal communities to get to Elephant Hill, Clearview Estate and Te Awanga to indulge in wine tastings at these three fine Cape Coast wineries.
