As you all know, my favorite type of cycling is when it’s in a warm climate with beautiful landscapes and views to ride through.  For me, it doesn’t get any better than riding along rows of palm trees and looking out at the endless horizon of ocean water.

Cycling in Maui

From rolling tropical hills, to beachfront sunsets, Maui offers cyclists of all levels the perfect vacation destination.  If you haven’t already been cycling on this amazing Hawaiian island, it’s time to book your vacation.  Maui offers both hilltop and beachfront luxury vacation rentals, so you can stay in paradise while you’re vacationing in paradise.

If you’re a road cyclist, you’ll find the roads of Maui smooth as silk and can choose from hundreds of routes and distances.  If mountain biking is your thing, you can either go exploring on your own or take a tour from several options available on the island.

You can bring your bike along with you, but to save the baggage costs you can rent a road or mountain bike in Maui.

In my opinion, the coolest thing to do when you go out for your first ride on an island paradise is to explore and get lost.  Don’t plan it all out, just let the island vibes fill your cycling spirit and Enjoy Your Ride.  But if you want a suggestion for your second day of riding, I recommend rolling by one of Maui’s best coffee shops. Stop in, meet some people, and caffeinate your body with some fantastic coffee.

Go fast, or ride slow…..either way, you’ll be impressed by the bicycle infrastructure of Maui and will be blown away by all there is around you on the ride.  You just can’t think of Cycling in Paradise without having Maui as one of your options.  Aloha.

    You mentioned hills, but surprised you didn’t mention one of the ultimate climbs! Going up Haleakala (starting in Paia ~sea level to 10,023 ft at the top of Haleakala crater lookout). One of the longest (if not the longest) paved climbs in the world. Better part of 36 miles uphill (avg 5% grade), which of course, isn’t easy, but if you make it the ride down is awesome! Made it up about a month ago and had about perfect weather (light winds and sunshine, and not too hot)

    Dude, If I go, I sure as heck can’t afford to stay at the places you linked! WOW – those are a little out of my price range. It’s one of the places on my bucket list, however!

Sugar Alternatives for Energy and Hydration

Question: I am using the homebrew sugar formulations (sometimes added to green tea).  I am also trying to wean myself off 1/2 dose adrenalean “lip tonic delivery system” (biorhythm brand- caffeine, hoodia g, synephrine, yohimbe) capsule for energy.

My question is other than juice, can you suggest modifications in lieu of table sugar for energy and hydration.

Answer:

Both raw/organic honey or agave can work great in the homebrew (substitute in the same quantities for the sugar, or to taste), but you do have to shake well in order to make sure they don’t settle out.  Have you tried either of these?  Also, make sure to use at least the minimum amount of salt recommended in the homebrew as the temps rise, you need the sodium replacement if you’re sweating.
