Sorry this event has been and gone


  • Sat 8 Nov ’14, 10:00am – 5:00pm


Sileni Estates Winery, 2016 Maraekakaho Rd, Hastings





Be at Sileni Estate Winery from 9am armed with your bike, sensible cycling attire, and a saddle bag full of thirsty enthusiasm. Enjoy a little pre-ride hype before setting off on The Wineries Ride from 10am where you will weave your way around Bridge Pa and Gimblett Gravels, enjoying some of Hawke’s Bay’s most beautiful wine country as you go.

There will be plenty of cellar doors (and a few pop ups along the way), all ready and waiting to share their performance enhancing liquids and other surprises. By the end of the ride you’ll be ready for a post ride wind-down party at Trinity Hill Winery. Laze on the lawn with tunes from Uncle Monkey, pizza from The Pipi Truck and plenty of Trinity Hill wines to whet your whistle.

Registration will open from 9am, time for a leisurely canape and a glass of fizz before you ride out at 10am.
