Trip Highlights

Hawai’i grows some of the best vanilla in the world, and on this invigorating ride you’ll work to enjoy it! After a mostly downhill cruise to Honoka’a we’ll challenge ourselves with the steep climb to Pa’auilo, up tranquil roads lined with groves of coffee and fruit trees. Our sweet finish is at 1,800 feet, where we’ll treat ourselves with a farm-to-table vanilla milkshake from The Hawaiian Vanilla Company. After our treat, we descend back down and head out to the Valley of the Kings (Waipio Valley) Lookout, our final destination. After soaking in the incredible view, we load up and transfer back to Waimea.

We ask guests to meet at our location in Waimea. Once you arrive at Anna Ranch, park in the middle lot with sweeping views of the Kohala Mountains. You will see our headquarters building with a small Big Island Bike Tours sign. We’ll have your selected bike sized and adjusted, ready for a practice ride. We’ll double check your fit on the bike and go through a basic safety assessment. We will then transfer out to the beginning of the ride, approximately a 10 min drive.
What if someone in our group is expert, but the others are not? No problem! Hop on an electric assist bike. You’ll quickly make the family “expert” feel like they’re out of shape!
