DescriptionThe Big Easy on the Hawke’s Bay Trails is the ultimate antidote to all those serious lycra laden cycling events held across the country. The Big Easy ride is a gentle ride and we encourage you to take all day and enjoy the many tasty Hawke’s Bay distractions along the way.

Easter Saturday 31st March: The Big Easy 
Saturday 31st March will see us riding out from Black Barn Vineyards in Havelock North heading out on River Road to hit the Hawke’s Bay Trails.

After enjoying 42km of tasty stops, you will aim to finish at Church Road Winery for the finale party and concert which starts at 2pm (but if you take longer that’s ok, it means you are enjoying all the distractions along the way!). Stay tuned for the concert will be BIG.  

The Clive "Family Start" will feature again, to help little legs (and some not so little legs) make it to the finish line.

Adults $35 and Kids (15 and under) $15. For that you get a top notch T Shirt, concert entry and access to the Big Easy deals on the route so you can stop, sip and sup your way along the ride. 

Transport can be booked so you can leave your car at the start or end and not have to worry about finding your way back. Transfers are $10 per person, per transfer.
