This Morning's Ride

Hawaii Bike Ride

This morning Chris and I went for a bike ride. We rode past Lahaina for a few miles, and then turned up towards the mountains. Rumor had it that after a climb (911 feet), there's a path that runs along the midpoint between ocean and the mountain base. About 3/4 of the way up the hill, I had to break but we met a biker coming down and asked about the path and he gave us the best directions, so after a bit more climbing (and another break), we found the path which you had to take slowly (lots of dips, sharp climbs and some hairpin turns) but had some incredible vistas. We took it down to the sugar cane road, and then from there back to the main highway into Lahaina where we stopped for breakfast before returning to the hotel. Not a long ride (a bit over 20 miles), but great fun and I felt great at the finish.

To me this is quite an impressive feat. You are amazing. Those views must have been incredible. Great photos and it sounds like you are having a wonderful time.

These photos are just stunning! And how cool that you did so well on the ride, seems like you are really getting back in to the saddle (haha!)

It was a lovely morning for a bike ride, Kim. Great job.

nancyhol:

Good for you, Kim! It must feel so good to be back on the bike - and in such a beautiful place.

Enjoy the rest of your trip!

It sounds like you had a great time on your trip. And I see lots of sunshine in your photos, so hopefully the weather turned out nice for you after all. The bikeride sounds amazing.

Anne:

Ok, clearly the concept of "long" is a relative term 'cause 20 miles definitely sounds like a looong ride to me :) I'm impressed! The scenery looks spectacular, wow.

Kim, just wanted to stop by to say, it was lovely meeting you and Chris, we look forward to seeing you again.
And on a second note, Sunday was rainy here, and there was an earthquake two miles from the summit of Haleakala, no damage was done, but I was thinking maybe you took the nice weather away with you:)
It is nice again though so I am thinking you lifted your curse:grin:
