Looking for somewhere to travel during the months between November and April? Look no further than Hawaii and the island of Maui. It’s our favourite island for many reasons: it has reliably warm and sunny climate, great cycling, and plenty of other non-biking water sport activities to fill your days including surfing, stand-up paddle-boarding, and outrigger canoeing. You will see whales, loggerhead turtles, birdlife and more. We’ve designed this itinerary to have you stay in Kihei, on the Napili Coast in West Maui, and Pa’ai to give you access to the best riding (without requiring shuttles) and to allow you to experience the variety of this island.
Only Great Explorations:
· Small groups, extraordinary guides, and authentic experiences
· Order off the menu at restaurants you won’t find in guidebooks
· Distinctive, charming hotels too small for larger groups
· We design and operate our own trips so there are only good surprises
Maui is a popular destination for road cyclists including pro racers who love the variety, challenging options and climate. Given the popularity of the island, there is some inevitable traffic on some of the routes, but there are good shoulders on many of the roads and frequent signs reminding motorists to give cyclists space. Winds (attracting kite surfers), high mid-day temperatures and sometimes rain are factors in our ride planning. Maui is certainly a dream destination and for avid cyclists in particular, a superb place to ride. Add in the opportunity to outrigger paddle, SUP, surf and relax on stunning beaches and it’s without equal in North America.
