Last year when we tried this ride we got rained out and had to abort about 2/3 of the way to Hana. Not today. Today was another fantastic day on Maui and although the roads were a little wet at first the second half of the trip to Hana was dry and most of the corners had dried out by the time we returned. Nice. This road has one my favorite signs of all time.


In case you can't read that number at the bottom it's 30, THIRTY MILES of the best damn road there is.

But oh were my legs beat from yesterday... it took ages for me to get rolling and even when I did it still felt like someone was pouring lactic acid into my quads for about 20 miles. The way home was better. So much so that when Greg surged I went with and then countered. The last few miles were pretty racy and I did okay.

Hana itself if beautiful. I could see spending a few days there some time. We had lunch on the Hana Beach Park.


Once back at the car Aaron and Greg got whole coconuts with the tops cut off and a straw for $5! It was delicious. We took the empty coconuts home and split them open and ate the meat with dinner.

Driving back we stopped at Hookipa Beach and watched some amazing wind and kite surfing. Wow. This place is great.
