Get out of the tour bus and create your own journey on this self-guided scenic bike ride to coastal wineries. Spend some time outdoors on the beautiful coast near Hawke’s Bay, riding beachside roads and a cycle trail to three wineries. The wineries are all located towards the end of the trail, so you won’t have to worry about riding bikes while drinking wine. When your winery visits are over, a shuttle takes you back to Napier. Shuttle pick up time departs Elephant Hill at 4pm and subject to change if there's an additional shuttle.

Finding the right wine
, Feb 2020
We loved the bike ride, it allowed us to travel at our own pace and stop where we wanted. Appreciated having 4 wineries to tour and if you set it up the bike Co. Will pick up your wine.
Great experience - especially if the weather is fine

This bike tour is an excellent way to enjoy some of the Hawkes Bay countryside up close. A fine day (pretty common for the region) made it a truly enjoyable experience. Do start early so you are not pressed for time with tasting at the wineries. Ideally, the pickup point would be the furthest winery - Te Awanga - and it would be possible to pick up purchases from all three sites rather than just Elephant.Hill. The bikes were excellent - gear changing very easy.
Napier must do!

Fantastic experience!

This was one of our favorite excursions ever. The bike shop staff were really friendly and answered all questions about the trip. The trail to the wineries was breathtaking and the directions and maps provided were excellent. The pickup at the winery worked out well and was the perfect ending to a great day!
Easy and yummy

Great experience. Not a hard ride. We had originally booked the 4 winery tour but our boat was too late arriving so we did the two winery route. Great bikes, great maps and wineries. We had an amazing lunch at The Mission Winery. I wish we could have stayed longer. It is a very easy bike ride except for the winds. There are a couple of small paths to be careful of on coming bikers but only a couple. The rest is pretty easy.
Great fun for a cruise stop!

My husband an I did a self guided bike ‘tour’ to two wineries near Napier while here for a one day cruise stop. The bike shop is in a great location - directly across from where the cruise port shuttle busses drop you off in town. It was a very quick and easy process of renting the bikes & getting directions. Our bikes were smooth shifting and comfy with wee bags in front to put water and personal items (not big enough to hold a backpack - FYI). The directions to find the three wineries to visit are decent, although we felt like we were on a bit of a scavenger hunt a few times. We completely missed the first winery ;-) although we easily found the second and third. Both were great places with nice tastings at $10 & $15 NZD respectively. At Mission winery we got two free logo glasses with our tasting. The ride to get to the two farther out wineries took about an hour-ish. We went the ‘long’ way through some extra wildlife area - highly recommend! You will have time to stop & take pictures & view the scenery a plenty. The ride is almost entirely flat & a lot of it is separated from traffic. You do have to ride with traffic - in a bike lane- for a short distance near the end. The bike company picked us up at 3pm at the farthest out winery & we even had time for a lovely cheese platter in addition to our tasting before they picked us up. Highly recommend!!
