There’s always something exciting happening in Hawke’s Bay – but remember to base yourself in The Village.

19 Apr

The Big Easy on the Hawke's Bay Trails.

Easter Saturday April 19 is The Big Easy. Starting at the Village Green (Havelock North Domain) at 10.00am. The ride will head out on Te Mata Road towards the limestone of the Hawke’s Bay Trails.

Following your nose will lead to a bunch of distractions along the way.

It’s a 45km ride with far too many places to stop, sip or lick something… the trail map will be updated soon but your ultimate goal is to hit Church Road from 2.00pm for The Big Easy Concert.

This year the concert features Jackie Clarke, Annie Crummer and Rikki Morris plus local artists Power and Naked Gun.

This is a non-competitive family fun event that utilises the Rotary Pathways between Farndon Park in Clive and the Clifton Bay Cafe.

Participants can enter for a 7k or 15k walk or run.

The run/walk will be timed, but it is not a race and there will be spot prizes only.

The Clive to Clifton dash is a competitive event for runners only and a trophy will be awarded to the first placegetter.
