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. The Big Easy ride is gentle ride and we encourage you to take all day and enjoy the many tasty Hawke’s Bay distractions along the way.
Easter Saturday 15th April: The Big Easy
Saturday April 15th will see us riding out from the Chalk 'n' Cheese 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 announcement...it 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 seriously 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 to transfer you between the start and the end of the ride, so you don't have to worry about driving. Transfers are $10 per person per transfer.
Warm your legs up with The Little Easy!
Good Friday, 14th April: The Little Easy, Central Hawke's Bay
A warm up for the main event, The Little Easy CHB is a nice gentle 12km meander on the Rotary River Pathway. Nothing too strenuous, just a nice little prep ride before the Big Easy on Saturday.
Adults $15 and Kids (15 and under) $10. For that you get a Central Hawke's Bay, Little Easy t-shirt!
And introducing the brand new...
Easter Sunday 16th April: The Little Easy, Wairoa
Check the legs still work after the main event with a warm down ride, The Little Easy Wairoa!
This is a cruisy 10km ride along the pathway next to the Wairoa River, starting at the lighthouse and finishing up at Pilot's Hill for some post-ride entertainment with food and drink available.
A range of prizes will be available to the best dressed family and the best dressed bike. A bike is also up for grabs!
Adults $15 and Kids (15 and under) $10. For that you get a Little Easy t-shirt, drink bottle and sunscreen.
