Bridge Pa Triangle cycle tour
Nov 2021 • Couples
We would definitely recommend On Yer Bike for anyone keen to explore some of the wineries around Hastings!

Very easy to arrange and easy to find, located just next to Ash Ridge winery. The bikes were clearly used, but we had absolutely no issues with their function, and were available swiftly on arrival in multiple sizes. There are 2 route options from their depot, and these were clearly explained using their map, which is provided. We chose the Bridge Pa triangle route, which included 5 vineyards and a cycle through the vineyards themselves.

There are no tastings included in the package (we didn’t expect this!), which we felt allowed us to be a bit more relaxed and spend time in the vineyards as opposed to rushing to get to the next one.

They also offered a free collection service for all the wines purchased to save us carrying them around in the basket, which made things much easier! On our return to the depot our wine was waiting for us, and they were very helpful in arranging some transport back to our accommodation.

An enjoyable day all round!

Great fun
Great fun and super easy to ride on the flat trails between the wineries.

The wineries along the way were all quite different, so gave a good mix of places to visit.

We bought wine at all of them and the bike place comes around to collect them so they don't rattle down the road in your bike.

Definitely a fun day out and minimal fitness required. Would be even easier on e-bikes but was so flat its probably not worth the extra cost.

Good biking, great wines!
Mar 2021
We had a good day riding our bikes around the Hawkes Bay wineries. Good bikes with baskets for personal things.
All the cycle paths are off road and therefore safe and hassle free. I would recommend the longest offered time frame as we had to rush at the end.
It was also very nice to have the bought wine picked up at the wineries, so we didn't have to drive them around.
I highly recommend taking an e-bike as it gets harder riding your bike after the second winery ;-)

Had a great time cycling solo to Clifton and the Wineries. Great views along the way, Modern bike that functioned very well. Good route that is flat all the way finished off with wine tasting at the end! Highly recommend this for an entertaining day out.

Great way to do a wine tasting!
Mar 2019 • Couples
The company had great customer service, and helpful advice on the best way to use our time. They provided a map, and picked up anything we purchased along the way. We ended up visiting 5 wineries in ~4 hours. Good quality bikes, great wineries, and food along the way.

Overall not the most beautiful bike route, but the wineries at the end of the route are beautiful!! Ngatarawa and Te Awa were our favorites for their chill vibes and beauty. The tastings were all very reasonably priced, if they charged at all.

So much Fun!
Apr 2019 • Friends
We booked as a group of 9 people. We had electric bikes & normal bikes. We had so much fun. Im not a big bike riding person but I managed to bike the whole way. We had a great lunch at one of the wineries & lots of tastings at the others. It really was a great day, the body was not even sore the next day! They also pick up all your purchases to give to you at the end of the day to take home. Awesome!

Great wineries, not so great bike rental experience
Feb 2019 • Couples
Today, we rented 2 bikes for a self guided winery tour of the Bridge Pa area. Not knowing how long we would take before tasting (and biking) became a blur (and unsafe), we paid for 3 hrs = $35 x 2 people = $70. Had a lovely time at Ash Ridge, Oak Estate and Ngatarawa wineries before very stormy weather hit so we returned to On Yer Bike rental after only 2 hrs. In that case, the bike rental cost should have been only $25 x 2 = $50 but they would not refund us. BAD! To add further insult, the rental location is on the site of Ash Ridge Winery...he could easily have offered us a couple of glasses of wine and still had a good profit margin and maintained some goodwill. Instead, I’m writing this message: bike renter beware and boycott Ash Ridge Wines. #dontscrewtourists

Beautiful Summer's day out Biking
Feb 2019 • Family
My adult family of 4 all really enjoyed a beautiful Summer's day out biking, particularly away from the highway, between the vineyards. Our bikes were comfortable and reliable.
We started with coffee at Ash Ridge, had delicious lunch at the Abbey and very pleasant wine tasting at Te Awa. The initial stretch of the tour is on the Highway for a short distance. In retrospect we may have walked along the grassy ditch to the side of the road over this part as the speeding cars were unnerving especially when first starting. We had good service all round.

A great day out for our company retreat. 20 of us off on a mixture of tandems, e bikes and ordinary bikes. Lunch at Abbey Estate. It was great to have ALL our wine purchased waiting for us on our return. Thanks for a great day.

Disappointing
This is an over priced, money making tour. The bikes were very tired and badly in need of a service. Gears slipped, tyres were under inflated and they creaked and squeaked the whole way. Not worth the $55 per bike.
The briefing and map were vague at best and the initial part of the route was fenced off with a temporary electric fence. When trying to call On Yer Bike on their “if you need help or assistance (for bike break down)” we got through to their answer machine.
The route is not clearly sign posted and we made numerous attempts to find some of the wineries.
2 of the 6 wineries available were closed on the day we visited which wasn’t mentioned in the briefing.
I definitely wouldn’t recommend this and would have preferred a bike ride around the city or along the river.
