Weekly group in Hawaii

Hi,

This is Raphael, from Switzerland. I will be in Hawaii for about ten days. I would like to join a group ride or anyone who ride around the island. Does anybody have any tips? I will rent a road bike also. Any shop/rental place to recommend?

thanks in advance for the help.
Cheers,
r.

aloha -

If you're going to be on Oahu, where Honolulu is, you can find a good listing of rides at www.hbl.org

As for rentals, one place is The Bike Shop on South King Street: www.bikeshophawaii.com/honolulu.html

Everybody has their own opinion, but for me the Tantalus loop ride is the greatest. If you want something longer, nearer the water, and you don't mind cars whizzing past, going up the Windward side of the island on Kalanianaole Highway is the popular choice.

cheers,
p.

Why group rides? I'd prefer to go riding alone any day.
