Hawaii Three Islands Hopping

Experience the spectacular beauty of the Hawaiian Islands on this island-hopping journey around the 3 central islands of the archipelago, Maui, Lanai and Molokai.

Each with a vastly different character, look and feel, from the other-worldliness of Maui’s Haleakala Volcano and a lush paradise ride along the Garden of Eden that is the Road to Hana, to the alluring seclusion and arid splendor of Lanai, formerly the Pineapple Island now known as the Private Island, to the immense beauty and towering sea cliffs of Molokai, the tallest on the planet, you’ll wonder at the variety of the 50th State of the USA.

Each day includes some Hawaiian beach time during or at the end of the ride.

Hawaii being a rather mountainous and therefore beautiful set of islands, presents us with many hills to contend with. Good news is that the road conditions are excellent throughout the islands we will be cycling on, we try to begin most days at the top of the hill for a long and thrilling downhill run, and we always have the support van to help you up whatever hills you’d rather not climb.
