  • As we ride our bicycles on Maui from its heavenly beaches to its scenic natural wonders there are plenty of reasons to see why Maui has been voted “Best Island” by readers of Conde Nast Traveler for more than a dozen years.
  • Many people have said they always wanted to go to Hawaii, and now combining bicycling, we can experience the perfect vacation.
  • We ride through the black lava fields, which remind some people of the landscape on the moon (though so far none of the participants have actually been to the moon).
  • We enjoy 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 two days due to the consistent trade winds, we will ride part of the ride with a tailwind that normally averages from 20 mph!
  • Unpack only one time. We stay in luxury condominiums with full kitchens for the entire tour.
  • Of course the best part of Hawaii is when we just relax and absorb the spectacular Hawaiian views and sunshine
