I guess winter is upon the mainland US and Canada now. That’s what I’m hearing. Temperatures are getting colder. Time to get your Maui cycling trip planned.
Perfect Bike Rides & Big Waves
Here in Maui the average daily temps are in the mid 80’s all winter. Perfect for cycling! Big waves and Humpback whales are starting to show up. A few current top professional cyclists have also made there way to Maui. Ryder Hesjedal and Ian Walsh (Pro Surfer) join me for a ride up Haleakala.
I thought you might like to see this great article about cycling on Maui by Andy van Bergen. It was just posted on the Aussie blog Cycling Tips and mentions Go Cycling Maui. It is accompanied by a lot of Andy’s great photographs, too.
Think of Hawaii and your first thoughts are likely to be of surf breaks, grass skirts, and pineapples. And if you are planning a trip to Hawaii chances are it’s not with cycling front of mind. But with such a variety of rides within close proximity and a landscape that was surely formed with cyclists in mind, it’s time to add Maui to your list of cycling holiday destinations.
Mahalo to those who participated in this year’s “Cycle to the Sun”! We had 187 racers compete from all over the world.
Congratulations on a great job climbing the “longest paved climb in the world”!
We had amazing weather most of the day. It was sunny and windy up at the summit, but overall conditions were nice from sea level to 10,000 feet.
