Fabulous bikes, easy to ride. All bikes were equipped with saddle bags for our purchases and complimentary bottle of water. Jenne provided a great map which was easy to follow. Service was super friendly and I would highly recommend bike about tours.

Amazing day and one we’ll never forget. Cycled from where Jenne, the excellent owner of this tour, dropped us off just south of Napier centre to Rod McDonald’s winery via three other superb vineyards and outstanding coastal views. Highly recommend to anyone visiting Hawkes Bay.
