“A group of us hired bikes with Takaro Trails to ride one of their many Hawke’s Bay wine trail options. We had a fabulous day. The bikes were well-maintained and enjoyable to ride with the owner ensuring they were set to each individual’s appropriate height needs.The scenery was fabulous, the service was excellent and the wine was delicious.This is a fun day out even if you do not wish to taste wine as the vineyards and surrounds are picturesque. Our group of friends agreed that we need to return to Takaro Trails to cycle another trail next year.”  Lea – Auckland – May 2016
