  • We ride our bikes on Maui from its heavenly beaches to its scenic natural wonders there are plenty of reasons why Maui has been voted “Best Island” by readers of Conde Nast Traveler for more than a dozen years.
  • Stay on Kaanapali beach for two nights, which has been consistently ranked the #1 beach in the U.S. and stay in condos with complete kitchens for the other four nights in South Kihei
  • Everyone dreams of going to Hawaii and now combine with bicycling with Maui and it is the perfect vacation.
  • Ride through the black lava fields, which reminds many people of the landscape on the moon (though so far none of the participants have actually been to the moon).
  • Have a “free” day to enjoy your own personal adventure, including the Road to Hana, riding down (or up) Haleakala Volcano, Zip-Lining or taking a snorkeling or scuba trip.
  • On one day ride with the trade winds that allow you to have a tailwind that averages from 40 to 60 mph!
  • Of course the best part of Hawaii is just absorbing the Hawaiian feeling and relaxing in paradise
