Road biking in Honolulu

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Wow. Yeah. You stayed in the heart of it, at the Sheraton Waikiki. Last time we were there, the wife and I walked from Downtown HNL to Kahala Mall (in flip flops). It is a beautiful place to just walk around and soak it in. I avoid the typical tourist spots like Waikiki but my wife had to see it.

Sounds like you had a decent visit. It's been kind of rainy -- Sunday was the first time in two weeks I went out and didn't get wet. The Sheraton is pretty much ground zero tourist-wise.

The rain didn't bother me at all, it seems like it just sprinkles for 10-15 minutes at most and then clears again, it's never consistently overcast. It was annoying to constantly have wet flip flops, though.

I also had no idea just how many tourists come from Japan to Oahu. I don't think I went anywhere without hearing Japanese being spoken, there must be dozens of flights a day to support crowds of that size. They easily outnumbered tourists from the mainland US, which is not something I expected.
