Self Guided On Yer Bike Winery Tour
Hawkes Bay, New Zealand
The vineyards, olive groves and farmland of the Bridge Pa Triangle are yours to explore by bike, stopping as you wish to enjoy a wine tasting in the many wine estates of the area.
‘On Yer Bike Winery Tours’ are based at 2543 State Highway 50, Roys Hill, outside Hastings, and here you can collect a bike, helmet, and a map of the area before you set off on your day of exploring the wineries of one of the country’s finest wine producing regions. You set the pace for this experience, stopping to soak in the beautiful countryside as you pass vineyards, horse studs and orchards. The terrain is flat and generally off-road as you follow the wineries trail track, which is around 12 miles and should take around 4-5 hours, depending how many wineries you visit. Wineries charge a $5 per person tasting fee which is generally refunded if wine is purchased and vehicle roadside support is available if needed, or to help carry any bottles you might buy. As no food is included, you could bring a packed lunch, or buy food at Ash Ridge Wines, the On Yer Bike tour base, or at one of the wineries, including Abbey Cellars or Te Awa (though we’d suggest booking in advance).
