- Duration: 5 Hours (approx.)
- Location: Ahuriri, Napier
A very scenic cycle featuring some of the regions favourite attractions and wineries, a locals favourite!
Meet us at our shop in Ahuriri, Napier. Today you will cycle the water trails, a favourite with visitors and locals alike. Cycle up the coast from Ahuriri, passing the popular surf beach of Westshore and out to Bayview and Crab Farm winery. Cycle through the lagoon farmland and Ahuriri estuary to Taradale. As you cycle through through this unique wildlife sanctuary, reflect on the fact that before the big earthquake of 1931 all this area was a vast tidal inlet encompassing thousands of hectares of wetland, marshes and mud banks.
A visit to New Zealand’s oldest winery, The Mission Estate, and the vibrant Church Road winery is a ‘must do’ before joining the cycle trail along the Tutaekuri river heading to Puketapu and the local pub, a favourite with visitors and locals alike for cold beers and burgers and hot chips for lunch. Silky Oak Chocolate Factory is also a great stop! Mid-afternoon (around 2.30pm) you will be collected and transferred back to Ahuriri or your accommodation if required.
