If you've never ridden a Fat Bike before, get ready to smile.... they're a lot of fun.

This unguided ride starts and finishes from the Gannet Beach Adventures site at 475 Clifton Road, Clifton, Te Awanga, Hawke's Bay, New Zealand - no need for you to cart bikes all over the countryside. Turn right when you hit the beach then you’ve got about 9 km (18 km return) of cycling along a sandy, gravelly and sometimes rocky beach. There could be waves and it’s up to you whether to avoid them... sometimes you might not have any choice...

You’ll cycle next to striking cliffs showing the different geology and you'll see evidence of massive earthquakes which have shaped New Zealand. You’ll see different species of birds and depending on the time of year maybe a seal or a penguin, or a dolphin or an orca out to sea. Towards the end of the beach you’ll come across our amazing gannet colonies. This is a nature trip with a bit of exercise and fun thrown in, total return trip time (including the walk to the plateau gannet colony) is approximately 3.5 - 4 hours. Most days the beach is a fun ride, other days it’s a bit rough and not for the faint hearted….. enjoy the ride!

We supply you with a Silverback Fat Bike equipped with 12 cm wide low pressure tyres. We’ve added puncture resistant tubes and gel padded seats. This setup lets you cycle over/through the sand, gravel and water - and some of the rocks depending on your skill level. We also supply you with a helmet, lock, an information sheet and a map.
