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

The Big Easy 2015

On Easter Saturday at 10am we will ride out from the Havelock North Domain, heading out on Te Mata Road to hit the limestone off-road Hawke’s Bay Trails. After enjoying 45km of tasty stops you will aim to finish at Church Road Winery for the finale party and concert at 2pm (but if you take longer that’s ok, it means you are enjoying all the distractions along the way!)

Riders will leave in waves every 15 mins from the Havelock North Domain to ease start line congestion. The Family Start in Clive will head off at 10:30am.

Transport is available at the start or end of the day so you will have no worries about driving.

This year there will be a Family Start in Clive to make it easier for little legs to make it to the finish line.

B.A.D. V brings the craft back to Hawke’s Bay with a vengeance. There have been a lot of exciting developments on the local scene with the likes of HBIB, Zeelandt and Fat Monk being joined by Brave, Giant and two brand new additions: Godsown and Sneaky.

This year’s event will bring you the best beer Hawke’s Bay has to offer along with a selection of the new and the old from around New Zealand. All complemented by the smooth sounds of Professor Dynamite and the Bandit and the Akina Vinyl Appreciation Society, with tasty eats provided by Paella A Go Go.

If you are a beer appreciator then Beer Appreciation Day is just what the doctor ordered.

Triple Peaks Challenge is one of New Zealand’s most beautiful adventure race.


Held in the sunny Hawke’s Bay, competitors run, walk or bike the 47km across Mt Erin, Mt Kahuranaki and Te Mata Peaks.


If that’s not your cup of tea, try the 12km fun run or get a team of mates together and do a relay!


Triple Peaks Challenge is an event not to be missed.
