There’s no better time than the middle of a hot Hawke’s Bay summer to grab your bike, or hire one, and enjoy the beautiful Hawke’s Bay cycle trails.
Whether it’s the popular Puketapu loop – just voted one of Lonely Planet’s 10 Stunning NZ Bike Rides, a cruise out to Te Awanga, Bay View, or taking in a selection of cellar doors, Hawke’s Bay Trails and the iWay network have something for everyone.
Not a trail fan? We’ve also got a top-class road-riding plus mountain-bike trails at Pan Pac Eskdale MTB Park, Te Mata Peak and Waipukurau.
The trails don’t look after themselves. They are the product of a local councils working closely together. Vicki Butterworth is funded by all councils in Hawke’s Bay. Her role as Cycle Network Coordinator is all about keeping a world-class trail in good shape and developing new sections of network over time.
“I want our cycling experience from Wairoa to Waipukurau to be one of the best in the country,” says Ms Butterworth.
“Our best way to improve the cycle network we have comes from feedback. People constantly tell me how much they love being out and about on our trails in Hawke’s Bay, and give me suggestions for improvements,” adds Ms Butterworth.
For summer trail blazers, here’s some local knowledge to help you get the best two-wheel experience:
Share your favourite ride on the hbparkstrails facebook page. If you see an issue on the trail, related to the surface, signs or rubbish dumping, drop a note to the Regional Council, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Coming up from late January, the East Clive coastal trail will have detours in place while a new outfall pipe is installed, and a new pipeline will be installed at State Highway 50 from Te Awa Estate Winery to Unison Vineyard.
