Blossom Ride with Free Coffee and Kick-back Kawekas Concert

Blossom Ride with Free Coffee and Kick-back Kawekas Concert

A new event has been added to the Hawke’s Bay events calendar this year as part of the Blossom Festival and it’s a ride that looks set to grow every year – proceeds from the cycle through Hawke’s Bay spring blossoms will be used to plant more trees to enjoy along the route.

The Blossom Ride takes place on Sunday 15 September from 10am onwards on the cycle ways and river side tracks running through Hastings District’s Fruitbowl.

It starts at the HB Opera House, heads up Havelock Road and along Te Mata Road in Havelock North. As well as the newly planted trees paid for from the $20 entry fee, there’s also a cup of coffee to be had for all riders at the new Tandem Cafe at the end of Te Mata Road.

Then cyclists follow the Tuki Tuki River to Black Bridge and on to Clive. The return route follows the new pathway along the Clive River on to the Hastings Showgrounds.

Final stop is back at the HB Opera House for refreshments and a free concert by The Kawekas at 1pm until 4pm. Non-riders can pay $2 to join in for the concert.
