MAUI CYCLE EXPLORATION
Maui Cycle Exploration is a monthly guided ride series supported by Hawaii Tourism. Rides are open to both residents and visitors and will take place the second Saturday every month unless otherwise stated. Please follow us on Facebook and check our website calendar for ride dates and details. We look forward to riding with you!
Who should attend the rides? Most of our rides are geared toward intermediate to advanced cyclists, who ride an average of 12-14 mph. Rides will ALWAYS be led by trained leaders and no participant will be left behind. Maui visitors and residents are both welcome!
Do I need to RSVP? Yes! To ensure cyclists are safe and non-disruptive to the flow of traffic, rides are capped at 30 people. Please book online to reserve your spot.
Is there a cost to participate? There is no cost to participate in the ride, thanks to volunteers and support provided by HTAâ€™s Community Enrichment Program. Gear rentals can be purchased from the participating bike shop directly. We are accepting small donations to continue this program on an ongoing basis and donations can be made at the time of booking.cff
What should I bring? Bring your own bike or rent one from our participating sponsor. Other recommended items include sunscreen, water, snacks, money for lunch stop or food item for a post-ride potluck (when scheduled). Please refrain from wearing earbuds.
What if I get hurt or get a flat tire? We will be partnering with bike shops across the island to help support our rides. A support vehicle will follow the group with first aid, spare equipment, and other resources.
How can I get involved with Maui Cycle Exploration or future projects? Email us at Maui@hbl.org! As an entirely volunteer-led organization, we constantly are looking for ride leaders and other volunteers who are interested in helping us carry out our mission.
