Let us introduce ourselves

A few words about us

We are On Yer Bike Winery Tours, a bike hire company based just outside Hastings, New Zealand, in one of the country’s premier wine growing regions – the Bridge Pa Triangle. Our passion is wine, and cycling around wineries is, we think, the most elegant and fun way to explore and discover the regions wineries and wines.

We rent bikes the way we would like to rent them ourselves when we travel; good quality bicycles, comfortable and with a hassle free service.  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.

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

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. 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.

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.

How it came to be

A simple, yet fun idea

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.

You start the tour at Ash Ridge Wines from where you can cycle to:
