    No worries, I didn't get to ride today (yesterday). Hit some golf balls into the holes (and other places), had two parties to attend. Brought some corn bread and haupia.........I managed to not eat too much. Tomorrow the riding begins again...............Love it!! Gonna hit up Mana Road with some touri.

    Saddle Road
    Hey everyone. Just wondering if anyone know of any good trails up on the Saddle road. I would think there would be some. Thanks for the help.

    Hey guys. So we had an absolutely memorable day on Mana Road Saturday. Thank you to gmats for hosting. I did a little write-up in my blog, I hope I don't sound too whiny about my rental bike. :) It was an incredible day, it was our favorite part of the whole trip.

    Thanks to everyone who gave suggestions and advice on where to ride. Be sure to hit me up if you're ever in Nor Cal.

    that's really nice :thumbsup: it's one thing to help someone find or recommend a trail but to be a host and offer all that, to complete strangers nonetheless, gmats props to you!

    Ah, but you see, this was a win win. I got to meet new people, extend the riding family a bit more AND I got a super ride in.

    Also, I'm just putting some back into the kitty. I've certainly taken from it over the years with all the great people who have shown me their trails through out the world.

    Thanks for the kudos, much appreciated.

    Aloha!

    I leave in the morning for a little over a week in Mauna Lani. Pretty excited. I was wondering if you guys could tell me if there's any mountain biking worth checking out near there. If there was a "must ride" trail within maybe an hour or so, I'd love to hear about it. Also, maybe places to rent a bike?

    Depending on which direction you were headed, Mountain Road Cycles in Waimea/Kamuela or Bike Works in Kailua/Kona. If you choose Waimea, then head on to Kalopa State Park. If Kona, then Kaloko trail. I'm sure the people at the bike shops will point you in the right direction.

    ^^^I agree.

    Kalopa is a fun little place. It has just the right amount of climbing and some nice flowing downhill sections. what day are you planning on riding?
