The Big Easy on the Hawke’s Bay Trails is the ultimate antidote to all those serious lycra laden cycling events held across the country.
2020 see's a new cruisy loop course for The Big Easy, starting AND ending at the iconic Church Road Winery, and takes in approximately 37km of scenic Hawke's Bay sights. The 28km Family Start option rides out from Farndon Park in Clive, joining up with the main course at Waitangi Regional Park.
The Big Easy ride is approximately 37km and we encourage you to take all day and enjoy the many tasty Hawke’s Bay distractions along the way. Saturday 11 April will see us riding out from the stunning Church Road Winery, heading out on Church Road, through Taradale to hit the Hawke's Bay Trails by Pettigrew Green Arena. After enjoying approximately 37km of tasty stops, you will aim to finish at Church Road Winery for the finale party and concert which starts at 1:30pm. The Clive "Family Start" will feature again, to help make sure everyone gets to the finish line, little legs and all, with a slightly shorter ride of 28km.
Warm up the legs on Good Friday with The Little Easy Central Hawke's Bay, a gentle 12km meander on the Rotary River Pathway, including the 100 metre long swing bridge over the Tukituki River. Nothing too strenuous, just a fun, family friendly ride to kickstart your Easter weekend.
