    Epic Day In Hawaii

    Today was too beautiful to stay at home and work in the yard. So I loaded the bike up and went down to a local fishing spot that I have not been to in years. They put up a bunch of gates to keep vehicles out, so I did some scouting on bike.





    The end of the road.....

    The bridge was washed away during heavy rainfall a few years back.

    I need to rig up a way to carry my fishng pole on my bike so I can combine two passions.

    I wish I could say I am not envious but I can't. Nice pictures from a beautiful corner of the world!

    Wow, awesome!! Great pics, thanks for sharing. Was nice out on my side too (Waimea) but I didn't get out to ride. Been kinda busy lately with people visiting (they don't ride) and working up on the mountain.

    There are tons of DIY setups out there..A trip to the hardware store for some clamps, and pvc tubing will save you some cash..If you would like an easy solution, here is a pre-made version that will let you ride to where you want to fish:

    Yeah, the state really shot itself in the foot with that one. If they'd gone through regular channels instead of pushing things throught w/o the proper EIS procedures we'd probably still have it.

    Nice photos! I think it was an epic hawaiian day statewide. I made it a point to get out of the office early today for a great afternoon ride up on a clear, cloudless Mauna Kahalawai. Maui no ka oi.

    Yeah, the lack of trades made for clear skies and fast road riding. It got kinda hot in Lahaina but there's a small, consistent south swell in the water so I alternated road riding and surfing a couple times today.
    Keep the Country country.

    Beautiful

    My wife and I are heading to Hawaii for three weeks starting August 30. Ten days on the Big Island and ten on Oahu. We can't wait since this is our first visit.

    I hope to at least get in a few days on a road bike on the Big Island and I've already arranged a longboard for Waikiki (I've surfed for 47 years and just want to have fun on a noserider - I know enough by now to leave the big stuff to the locals ).

    Is that opposed to seeing crappy pics from Hawaii? Is there such a thing?

    Yeah left before the auto yard, though the cars have been removed. Drive on that road and you will see signs for the public access parking.

    thanks was thinking about going there one day.

    empty: there have been a lot of deaths in relation to the ocean and the opihi. I am not a very superstitious guy but I think the ocean is a little mad and I have to respect that. going to sat away from picking for a while
