    Get on out here! Rent a bike from HIADV and explore this place! There really is riding here for every type. Well maybe not supercross but anything else!

    That is off of R1 some (legal) side trails. I wish I could get to the backside of Hualalai! Man I may have to get an old beemer someday, they are just cool!

    Nice shot, was that yesterday? I saw an Airhead with a white helmet heading west on Saddle in the vicinity of Kaumana City at about 4:00 PM.

    My nephew was in the leading Hawaiian canoe yesterday (fifth at the line) and he texted me a pix of the whole crew getting IVs at the hotel(?) in the evening. Cheeooo :loco

    At least he rests today, I hope.

    I am under the impression that the four leading canoes are filled with (basically) professional Tahitians paddlers.:deal


    (PS White Rd was too wet so I moved to a "drier clime")

    Pretty freakin cool! Scary looking but cool.

    Funnily enough living in this place has showed me my one big fear. It's It's being on a boat on the open ocean. Great fear to have living on an island right? I guess I'm a mountain man at heart. I spend a ton of time all over Mauna Kea here.

    IVs, they're not just for Hangovers!!! :rofl

    Yep, that's what those guys do for a living, the Olamau kind of caters to them by scheduling the Olamau when the Tahitians can make it, we have some incredible waterman here in Hawaii but it's just a "Leisure" sport for them....

    Did you used to ride Mud Lane? Seriously fun single track in that area!

    I grew up on the North Shore of Oahu and surfed all through highschool, work, and then college, I've paddled pretty much every coast of the Big Isle and I also ran my own boat out of Hilo fishing Ika Shibi (Night time handline Tuna fishing for 100+ lbs Yellow Fin) so I'm comfortable on the ocean.

    Scariest thing I ever did on H2O was paddle down the Rhine River past the Lorelei in Germany, that water was just plain freaky!!! :huh

    Haha see and I used to free float down crazy rapids and river surf in stuff that should have killed me. I guess it's all what you grow up with. :beer:

    Flew from Maui to Big Island this weekend and rented some great bikes from Jason at www.hiadv.com
    Met up with Speedmonkey on Saturday and we all did a ride from Kona to Waipio Valley. Took some fun back road trails on Mud Road and had a blast!

    Next time Id love to ride Mana Rd and explore the Hilo side a bit. Always fun exploring new territory :D

    Hey Mendo, yeah it was fun meeting and riding with you guys! Great day and those cliffs we found and the road in Waipio you showed us were just icing on the cake. You guys definitely have to check out Mana road and Skyline road when you ce back. Here is the one shot I got.
