Welcome to Coastal Wine Cycles
Thanks for finding us in the vastness of the Internet. We're a young, dynamic, fun company that loves cycling, wine, the ocean, beach, rivers, peaks, fields, orchards, long lunches, and of course sunny days and friends to enjoy them with.
Our business is about providing experiences. Our kick-ass bikes and awesome location helps us do this.
We have classic beach cruiser bikes from California for day hire in Te Awanga, Hawke’s Bay. They have wide comfortable seats, swept back handlebars, baskets, bells, and oversize tires….perfect for relaxed cycling.
We are conveniently located right on the Kidnappers Coast Cycle Trail, our driveway connects to the off-road limestone pathway network. We are surrounded by a hub of activities and attractions, making it super easy to be right in the action of it. We are a 20 minutes drive from Napier and 15 minutes from Havelock North and Hastings. We have a list of recommended transport operators if you need assistance.
We’ve cycled far, wide, up, and down, and have narrowed these experiences down to three self-guided great routes.

Coastal Dash - 6 to 10 kilometres (your call)
Straight into it. Out our door, around the corner and cycle up the coastal pathway towards Cape Kidnappers. Along the way calling into the various wineries, cellar doors, art galleries, gift shops and cafés. Very easy cycling, and a very easy way to use an afternoon.
The Coast & River Loop - 15 kilometres
This is our favourite. Start along the coastal pathway, through the seaside village of Haumoana, check out the Tukituki lagoon with its surfers and fishermen, then up the Tukituki River, past the vineyards, orchards, farms, and then into the back of Te Awanga for some serious lunching.
Upstream Explorer - 25 kilometres
For the more energetic types, this is an awesome way to see our surroundings. Start along the coastal pathway, through the seaside village of Haumoana, check out the Tukituki lagoon with its surfers and fishermen, then up the Tukituki River, past the vineyards, orchards, farms following the river up to Havelock North. Here you will be on the fringe of the village, where there are great wineries, cellar doors and local food producers. Afterwards cruise back to Te Awanga for some well deserved lunching (if you haven't already indulged here!).
Fleetwood Mac Route (go your own way)
If you want to go your own way, no problem we’ll give you a map and a pat on the back.
Christmas Parties, Corporate Day Out, Birthday Celebrations, Reunions, Weekend Getaways, Wedding & Hens Parties - you name it - we love hosting groups!
