I’ve been coming back to Hawaii on a regular basis for over 20 years now. And we’ve never biked here. After flying my mountain bike over with me from the mainland, I was ready to go for my first paradise adventure.
As much as the black/difficult trails were calling to me from Trail Forks, I decided to do the smart thing and take an easy green/beginner and did the Ohana Trail nearby the house. Whew! I’m glad I did that. (BTW, ohana = family in the Hawaiian language.)
Dehydrated from traveling all day yesterday, minimal sleep and heat/humidity didn’t exactly set me up for success. Add in there that I choose a flow trail, and unknowingly went against the flow… well, there was a lot of redlining and huffing.
Once I turned around, it was GREAT!
It wasn’t a home run my first time out. But it wet my appetite for a little more tomorrow! It’s bound to be fun!
Hope you enjoy the photos!!
