    I saw some guy with one of these a while back. He is from Alaska, he posts some great videos. I thought about making one, just never got around to it yet.

    Awesome job!!

    About to depart to Kalopa. See you guys soon.

    OK, here are some pictures from today's ride up in Kalopa. The trails were in sweet, amazing, dry shape. Was great riding with David, Darren, Russel, Jonas, Todd, Florian.

    Hope this Garmin link works:

You guys are exactly what the "24 Hours..." is all about - just a bunch of mountain-bike junkies having some fun in what's left of (somewhat) prestine Oahu. You'll meet all kinds of enthusiasts - serious contenders logging 100+ miles (solo, SS, team) to tri-types, weekend-warriors, drunks, etc. Depending on your perspective, it's what you (and your team, if you choose) make of it.

    Nice pics gmats! That's a pretty nice size group of riders. I wish I could've been there, but hopefully I can make it to the next Kalopa ride.

    Would be cool to put a team together and do an event like this. To bad we don't have anything like that here.

    You're welcome. Always nice to get out and ride, especially when conditions are so great.

    Sorry, wanted to ride but going to spend time with my girlfriend and practice lawn-billiard shots. Hope someone's out there taking advantage of the great conditions. Looks like another great, dry day up in Kalopa.

    Kulani trail conditions were average, still damp from the weekend's rains. Had a good ride though. Maz cleared this one on his first attempt.

    Sorry for recycling the pic, my camera took a dump.

    Kulani was great. It was a little muddy and damp, but it made it that much more challenging and fun. Thanks aikane for showing me more of the trails. Today's ride was fun.

    I wasn't too tired yet, so I went for a quick climb up waterfall hill after Kulani. Yep I doubled dipped today. I think I was meant to go there cause I was able to help my buddy down the hill. I believe it was Friday afternoon when I met Buck. I just finished waterfall and he stopped by my truck and we started chatting about biking. He wasn't aware about waterfall hill so I told him he should check it out one day. Well low and behold today I see him climbing up the hill. We chatted again at the 2nd resorvoir and I told him about this forum. I told him I had to dig because I was supposed to be home by 5:00. I know it was around 4:45 so I jammed down the hill and quickly loaded my bike and gear in my truck. I was just about to leave when I see him and his bike coming down the road. He had a flat tire! He says he popped it on a big rock coming down. So I gave him a ride back to his apartment in Wainaku. I was happy to help him out. It probably would've sucked for him to get all the way back down.


    BUCK if you are reading this, make an account and say wassup. I hope you get your bike fixed soon so you can come out and ride with us.

    Haha, oh well.
    Mr. Honolii, so I made it up to the reservoir and saw the road that crosses the river, but had to turn around. It was getting late and I didn't have much left in the tank either. But how much further is it? Was I about half way?

    Wow! Good job!
    About 2/3s of the way up.
    There's another resv at the end. Also a Huge downhill to uphill U halfpipe gully. Kinda fun, just crank as fast as you can down to see if you can make it up the otherside, no slack gas!

    Cool beans, I would have been happy to hear I was half way. The half pipe sounds fun, gotta go back this weekend and check it out.

    I also went up to waterfall hill today. I took a co-worker for his first ride in a looooong time. I let him borrow my Hardrock. We accessed the trail by going through the chain rope with the red reflectors at the bottom. That was a fun way to start off the ride. I could tell he was feeling the burn, but he still managed to make it to the top. Then we went to the right to check out the trolley. Then I took him to the lookout area with the rusty bridge. After that we headed down. I think I may have gotten him "hooked". He bought my bike when I dropped him off at his house. I gave him a smoking deal on my 07 Hardrock since he's a friend. So we may have another potential rider coming out with us one day.


    Aikane - I saw your truck when we got back, but I was amazed that we never saw you even once.

    Yeah I expected to see you coming down. But I go straight after the second tank. So do you end up at the reservoir eventually?

    and

    Ghetto GoPro mount on an RFX

    His name is Tsceezy. He and his wife live up in AK on Kodiack Island. Some awesome videos.

    well from the two trails we did after the 2nd resoirvoir, they both pretty much lead to dead ends. My co-worker was pretty tired so we turned around headed back down after we reached the rusty bridge.

    I still want to climb to the top resorvoir. I've done all the trails up there except for that one. If I finish on time I may try to hit that one up tomorrow.



    This is a picture of the other resorvoir at the top of the asphalt road. I went up this road on saturday. This was a fun climb.

    We were thinking no moon, full dark so if your battery dies, The Boogeyman will get you!
    2 hours max ride as those are average battery life for good lights. Trail heads and turnoffs marked with glow bands.

    Open date, kinda the plan, near Halloween. LOL! This is gonna be epic! Picks straws who goes first, one minute intervals, slow riders move aside for faster riders, . Just throwing out some suggestions. Would be even funnier we do blind pick on bikes. Everybodys bike get numbered, you draw number from bag and thats the bike you have to ride. LOL! We could have a bonfire right in middle of quarry and campout too, have a full on camp cookout. I can even make shirts for the finishers, I Survived the 2012 Boogeyman Ride, Kulani Trails

    Anybody up for a Volcano ride on Sat? Early start, I can lead as I know the area.
    Anthem Boy is out, drag races. I'm going, test out cam more.
    Trail route depends on who is going and how many.
    Varies from 5 mile downhill, scenic single track, tech, and ?????? Depends again on who and how many. I'll tailor it to the skill levels so the pack stays tight and not waiting.

    Wish I could but I think I am going to have to stay local at least one more weekend. I think there's a good chance Todd and I are going up to Kalopa for Saturday a.m. ride. I was hoping I'd be able to make it to Kulani this weekend but it's not looking like it'll work out. Some day I will make it out to Volcano to ride with you guys.

    Jonas! Might just be you and I! It's all good, I'll make it worth the drive. Saddle road is definetly faster. We could meet up in Hilo and take my truck up, that way you dont have to drive all the way to Volcano. I'm looking at an early morn ride, if you could be in Hilo by 7:30, that would be cool. Takes about an hour and a half from Waikoloa, I think that's where you at?
    I'll def PM you where we can meet and my contact tomorrow. Just waiting to see if anybody else joins in.
    Aloha,
    Honolii

    "Gotta"? Sounds tough. Play golf? Looks like Todd and I are going to be at Kalopa at around 08:00 or so unless someone wants and earlier or later (not by too much) time.
