Takaro Trails Cycle Tours

A fresh new way to see the Bay

When Jenny Ryan decided to put her extensive travel and tourism experience to good use it wasn't difficult for her to decide on the focus of her new business.

With a passion for the outdoors and increasing popularity of cycling as a fun and healthy holiday option, Jenny established Tākaro Trails to provide quality outdoor holidays in sunny Hawke's Bay. You can decide on the length and difficulty of your ride, plus each day of your chosen itinerary you can vary the amount of time spent visiting the region's many attractions.

Why cycle Hawke's Bay? Because the region now boasts over 180km of scenic, off road cycle trails forming part of Nga Haerenga, the New Zealand Cycle Trail. Their 3 'great rides' which are the 'water ride', the 'landscapes ride' and the 'wineries ride' make up the Hawke's Bay Trails and each route is unique in its own way. Graded 'easy' these rides are suitable for cyclists of all abilities and confirm Hawke's Bay as the ultimate cycle holiday destination.

The Hawke's Bay Trails are perfect for kids too and Takaro Trails welcomes children from age eight years on their tour programme. Due to the longer cycling distances, on road sections and some hill climbs, the five day 'Diverse Hawke's Bay' tour is recommended for children aged 12 years and over.
