Clive underpass areas get an upgrade

Clive underpass areas get an upgrade

NZTA have completed upgrading the underpass areas at Clive. Read more...

Clive is a friendly wee village, right at the heart of Hawke’s Bay Trails.

Thanks to the great team from NZTA we’ve been able to upgrade the bridge underpass areas to concrete - much safer and resilient. Please remember to still slow down, keep left and use caution on gradients or blind corners.

So enjoy next time you are riding through or just head to Clive for a coffee.

Fancy a treat just off the trail on Sunday?

How does a delicious Rush Munro ice cream on your Sunday ride sound? This weekend, Sunday 25 February from 11am to 4pm the ‘O’ Team will be serving our ice cream from Rush Munro's old fashioned ice cream cart at Ormlie Lodge. 

It's easy to find them. Just hop off the Hawke's Bay Trails at Lennox Park (or Poplar Lane - where the beautiful poplar glade is), found half way down Puketapu Loop on the Waiohiki Marae side.
