    Oahu road rides

    I have to go to Honolulu for work in March and I am hoping to do a nice road ride. Can anyone recommend a nice look starting from Honolulu? I am looking for something in the 50 mile range, that will have some really nice scenery and views.

    I appreciate any input! Thanks.

    Try this link. Its got a map you can click on. You'll probably want section 5.

    Enjoy your visit.

    Edited to add: This map is kinda big when you click on the sections. Check out IT&B bike shop or almost any shop on the island when you get here. They have hard copies and usually free.

    definetly want to ride through waikiki eastward then take a nice little hill/swiry road up diamondhead, stop near the top, its a really nice lookout point(s) popular surfspot also, so you can make this your end or mid-break on your ride.

    Oahu ?

    Just got back and did a solo century while there. Waikiki through Pali Tunnels, Windward coast to Northshore and back to Hono on 99. Not to bad, lots of traffic, little bike lanes, lots of surfer gawkers. Would I do it again? Yes because I can. 50 mile loop? Go up the Pali to coast and turn right(East) and go around the point when Hannuma Bay is, take a photo and back to Waikiki through the Kahala neighbor hood. Alot of locals ride around the east point but probably not back through the Pali Tunnels as it would be all uphill. Maui is much more bike friendly.
