Aloha,

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.

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.
