CIRCUMNAVIGATE THE BIG ISLAND

We design training camps, clinics, and all-inclusive tours around our clients’ dreams of riding in Hawaii, whether it’s to become a better cyclist or experience the unique scenery and culture of Hawaii. Come and be a part of our Ohana, bike hawaii and let us show you amazing ocean views, massive volcano climbs, breaching whales, hot lava, classic Paniolo round-ups, and delicious local cuisine. Once in Hawaii, we take care of everything. So don’t worry about the airport pick-up and bike builds, because your only job in Hawaii is to ride and experience paradise.

Awe? Triumph? Giddy relief? How will you describe the feeling of standing on top of the Kohala range at nearly 7000 feet, after climbing hours earlier out of the quaint town of Hawi? Looking down at the three incredibly massive volcanoes, Mauna Kea, Mauna Loa, and Hualalai, which make up the bulk of the Big Island, you can visually trace the ridge lines where they  merge far below. From this vantage point the most recent lava flows off Hualalai as well as the distinct coastline of Kona are all within your panoramic view. As you soak up the scene, you realize how unique and how very young this island is, still forming beneath your feet. We cyclists are truly lucky to be alive at this moment in history, able to ride in such a beautiful location.

KONA to HOLUALOA

KONA

Nothing takes you back to old school Hawai’i like a ride to Holualoa Town. Nestled 1,200 feet above Kona, Holualoa Town looks almost the same as it did 50 years ago.

WOOD VALLEY to SOUTH POINT

DISTRICT OF KA’U

The most serene and scenic ride on the Big Island aptly starts and finishes in South Point. After a quick stop at Punalu’u Bakery, we’ll work off the baked goods by climbing along the slopes of Mauna Loa all the way to Wood Valley. Easily one of the least traveled areas, we get old cane haul roads all to ourselves as we make our way back to S. Point. If you’re daring, go for a cliff jump at the end of the ride.

RED ROAD

KAPOHO

The “red road” is quite literally the end of the earth, but not the end of our tour! On today’s route, witness the lava flow of 1986 which buried most of the town. Don’t let Pele’s magic distract you from our final goal: the naturally heated tide pools of Kapoho!

The lesser known largest mountain in world (by volume), Mauna Loa is often eclipsed by it’s neighbor, Mauna Kea, but trust us, this is by far a better ride. It’s certainly one of our favorites and it’s very accessible to a large range of riding abilities. One to cross of the bucket list!
