About On Yer Bike

Our story with Winery Bike Tours Hawke’s Bay

On Yer Bike Winery Tours is a small friendly bike hire business located on State Highway 50, 7 km South of Hastings. We operate bicycle rentals focussed on Hawke's Bay wine tours from an established base in an olive grove, in the heart of the regions leading vineyards.

Phil and Chris Wilcock took over the business in 2012 from Mike and Julie Russell who successfully operated On Yer Bike from their woolshed for twelve years. Phil and Chris are passionate about Hawke's Bay and offer flexible tour packages so you can enjoy a unique and 'different' experience. From our location on State Highway 50, cyclists have access to a number of internationally reknown wineries within a few kilometres.

On Yer Bike is the oldest bike hire company focussed on winery tours in Hawke's Bay, and we have enjoyed very positive feedback from enthusiastic visitors from around the world - including being recommended by Lonely Planet.

On Yer Bike Winery Tours is the “original” bike wine tour company.

What to Expect

Arrive at our base at 2543 State Highway 50, Roys Hill, after 10.00 am and we will then get you set up with bikes, helmets, a map of the area and get you on your way.

The terrain is flat and very easy cycling. Scenery includes vineyards, olive groves, horse studs, orchards and farmland. Follow the wineries trail track - you are off-road most of the way.

You start the tour at Ash Ridge Wines from where you can cycle to Sileni Estate, Alpha Domus, Abbey Cellars, Triangle Cellars, Ngatarawa Estate, Salvare, Trinity Hill and Te Awa. This makes up around a 20Km circuit and you can comfortably do it in around 4-5 hours depending on how long you stay for tasting wine at each winery. Alternatively you can cycle the shorter route of Ngatarawa Road and cover 6 out of the 9 wineries.

During the day we will have vehicle roadside support to help if you have any difficulties or run out of puff and to collect any wine that you purchase from the wineries you visit.

Enjoy a leisurely pace, choose the wineries you wish to visit, soak up the sun and enjoy the experience and surrounding countryside.

Wineries included on the cycle tour are:

The Bikes

Mountain Bike

Mountain Bikes

All our 21 gear Mountain Bikes are fitted with comfortable cycle seats.

All bike hires include safety helmets (which are compulsory for all cycle riders in New Zealand), baskets and/or backpacks (for your provisions).

All bikes are fitted with stands and there are facilities at the wineries for cycle parking in bike racks.

Tandem Bike


A fun way for two to get around the countryside. If you have never tried one then here is your chance. Test one out before you choose your bike.

Bike Routes

The cycling trails are generally quite flat; you can choose a wine tour route to match your level of fitness. On Yer Bike Winery Tours is a fun and healthy way to see and enjoy the countryside that is the world-renowned Gimblett Gravels and Bridge Pa Triangle grape growing regions on the scenic Heretaunga Plains in Hawke’s Bay.

Whether you want to go for a couple of hours or a whole day, we’ve got the trail for you. Up to nine wineries can be visited on a self-guided tour using the map provided. All offer the opportunity to taste the wines and have outside seating where a visitor can enjoy the superb settings before moving on. Some cycling is ‘off-road’ through vineyards, and an olive grove.

The routes are all clearly marked and with a number of wineries nearby you won’t get lost. Vehicle back-up and support are just a phone call away for when “you run out of puff’ or would like wine collected.

Wineries to Visit

The distance from home base at Ash Ridge Wines, to the next winery is 10 to 15 minutes by bike. The wineries are well spaced from there on, for the perfect balance between exercise, scenery and wine tasting.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long will it take?

During winter we have limited operating hours put on us by the wineireis being open between 11am and 4pm. Depending on the number of wineries you visit and time spent at each winery it will take the best part of a whole day.

How many wineries can I visit?

The route covers 9 wineries that are within cycling distance, not all are open daily but you should be able to visit between 3 and 5 wineries.

What is the best time to start?

Best time to arrive is about 11am to 11.30am we can get you on your way fairly quickly. The wineries are fairly close and are open from 11am in winter.

Are Bookings Required?

Most of the time you can turn up and we will have bikes available. Occasionally We do get busy time to time so bookings are essential - particularly on weekends - to ensure that you don't miss out on a great day's bike ride.

Do I pay a deposit?

To confirm your booking we do ask you call with credit card details - our policy is to take credit card details as a guarantee of your booking, so will not be processed until your booked date at which time your card will be manually processed.

Do you have a cancellation policy?

Contact us at least 48 hours in advance if you cannot come to avoid being charged 30% if your booking.

Where can I eat nearby?

There is a cafe at Ash Ridge Wines - our base - which offers Tea, Coffee, various platters and lunches. A few of the wineries offer a cheese board; Te Awa winery has a restaraunt. There are no shops or farmers fruit outlets on the route. It is best to bring your own picnic during winter.

Do I pay tasting fees?

All wineries now charge a tasting fee of $3 - $5 per person. Generally, tasting fees can be refundable against any wine purchased, however some wineries may charge a non-refundable tasting fee if the group is larger than 10 people.

Does OYB offer a pick up service?

There are no bus routes to our rural location. We have negotiated special rates with local taxis. Call The Village Shuttle on 06 877 7632 if you are coming from Hastings or Havelock North or Baywide Taxis on 0800 88 55 33 if you are coming from Napier. If you make your way to the On Yer Bike Base it is 15 minutes drive from Havelock North and Hastings and 25 minutes from Napier.

Can we ride in other areas?

We have decided to concentrate and provide the best service in the Gimblett Gravels / Bridge Pa Triangle area. As a result we do not take the bikes or riders to other winery areas.

Can I bring my own Bike?

We are primarily a bike hire company with the theme of wine tours, so we would prefer that you hire our bikes. If you are part of a large group and wish to bring yoru own bike we will charge a fee of $10 per person. This covers for you parking on our premises for the day and using our exclusive route.

Am I Cycling on the Road?

Not unless you want to. Since the addition of the Wineries Cycle Track you follow the lime tracks on the side of the road. It is one of the safest places to ride and very bike friendly. There is only one section where clients are on the road for 400m.

What happens if it is wet?

You will get wet! If the weather is totally unsuitable for cycling, we will see if there is another day you can do the tour.

Do you do group discounts?

No we do not. It takes a lot more staff and commitment to manage larger groups. We put a lot of effort into the service and hospitality to ensure you have a wonderful experience.

Are there places to stay nearby?

There are also several good lodges in Havelock North to consider which is only a 15 minute drive away. Go to www.hawkesbaynz.com for listings.

Do you have bikes for children?

Yes, we have a baby seat for 1-3 year olds and one child trailer for 4-8 yr olds. For children 8-14 years we currently do not have bikes for. Adult bikes are suitable for children over the age of 14 years.

Do I have to wear a helmet?

Yes. Helmets are compulsory in New Zealand and client safety is paramount.
