Bike Hub

The Willis Legal Bikeport is a collaboration between Willis Legal, HBAL, EECA (co-funder) and Hawke’s Bay Trails. The bikeport has secure undercover parking for 12 bikes, a bike maintenance station for assembly and repairs, charging capability for e-bikes, and additional bike racks and seating outside.

 The Bikeport will make it easier and more convenient for cyclists to access the airport by bike, encouraging the 200 people who work at airport-based businesses and the estimated 500,000 passengers (and growing quickly - noting 750K just prior to COVID-19) and visitors who use the airport every year, to consider more sustainable transport options. It will also enhance Hawke’s Bay as a destination for cyclists.

The Bikeport is an ideal rest stop on the 35km Water Ride trail, a scenic ride that starts on Napier’s shoreline at Ahuriri. The trail follows the coast towards Bay View, before heading inland and south into rural wetlands. It winds around historic Te Roro o Kuri Island and after passing the airport continues through wetlands and finishes back in Ahuriri. The full 35km loop can be split into shorter sections, or extended to include the Taradale Loop that takes in Mission Estate and Church Road wineries.

The Bikeport is securely locked between 10:00 pm and 5:00 am and is also monitored by a security camera and Amour Guard site monitoring. While the airport endeavours to take all reasonable care to ensure the safety of bicycles parked in the Bikeport through the use of lighting and CCTV, the Airport does not guarantee and provides no warranty in respect of the security of your bicycle. Airport employees are not authorised to accept any of your possessions for safe custody.
