I must say WOW.
A heads up: the loop around West Maui is one of the best coast rides in the American Pacific. Unbelievable scenery coupled with a fantastic road and very little traffic, this ride classifies as one of the best rides in the Pacific Northwest region. At times i felt i had left the USA because of the narrow road & lack of traffic, and had been transported to some nearly deserted island in the Adriatic.
I have not found a better road with less traffic and views of the pacific anywhere in Oregon or Washington, maybe there's some great coast roads in California but suspect they have quite a bit more traffic.
If anyone has time on maui, skip the halekala ride and do the west maui loop. 62 miles m/l, and one of the absolute best coast rides EVAR.
Unbelievably fantastic. Must recommend as a must do if anyone makes it to Maui. I did it on my SNS coupled Surly TravelersCheck, but you can rent a road bike at West Maui Cycles.
Pictures and video when i get time to crunch some pixels.
