Hawke's Bay- in short, it’s provincial New Zealand, with a tremendous climate, a strong horticultural and agricultural economy, located on the East Coast of the North Island - an hour’s flight from Auckland and slightly less from Wellington. By car it's just over four hours drive from Wellington and around six hours drive from Auckland. Coming from Rotorua international Airport, you can expect to be on the road for three hours, while a quick 90 minutes drive will see you arriving here from Taupo.
Two small urban areas make up the bulk of the Hawke's Bay population of 151,179. Hastings District ( mostly not on the Coast) population 70,842 and Napier City (on the Coast) population 55.359
The climate is dry and temperate. The summers are tremendous (That’s a Fishbike interpretation) average temperature 22.7c, Winters are cool average temperature 13.7c
The area is noted for food and wine, excellent fresh fruit and veges. Most importantly, the area is noted for excellent off-road cycling. Cycle to taste the wine, taste a great coffee. Experience the delightful Pacific Ocean and views of Cape Kidnappers; explore wetlands and protected estuaries by bicycle. Others would say the area is noted for Art Deco architecture - the Napier City leaders would have you believe Napier is the Art Deco Capital of the World, rent a Fishbike and decide for yourself.
Let's be really honest about the area, from a cycling perspectives Hawke’s Bay Trails are 90% flat, easy grade, that’s a bonus.
