    Sunday bike ride in Hawaii...

    There’s a bike ride this Sunday for anyone out here on Oahu. We’ll be meeting at Kapiolani Park at 0815. Plan on heading out at 0830. We’ll be meeting along **** Avenue on the East side of Kapiolani Park. Look for a silver Jeep Liberty with a bike rack on the back, and a tall guy (me) with a silver Specialized Sirrus.

    [Map Here]

    This isn’t a large group ride, in fact there are only two confirmed to show. It is also not a fast ride. Our average over the entire ride will likely be 12-14 mph. We plan on heading around the South side of Diamond Head, East along Kalanianaole Highway, around Koko Head via Hawaii Kai Rd, then up along the coast to Waiamanalo. How far we go depends on how we feel.

    Like I said, this isn’t a hard ride. There will be breaks, and we may even stop for lunch in Kailua or Waiamanalo. But, if you feel like getting out and need someone to ride with, then we’ll see you there.

    Bloodhound, this is off your subject but can you tell us about the annual race up Haleakala? What's the record and what are the fastest times? What kind of bike setup do they use?

    ...not a lot of info...

    Well, I haven't done it, and don't know a lot about it, but here are two links that explain more:

    Hope that helps!

    That web site was interesting. Jonathan Vaughters holds the speed record going up Haleakala. He was on Lance Armstrong's team when Lance won the first TdF.

    For 2007 the race up Haleakala is in august so that explains why the professionals don't go.
