Fri, Nov 5

The time has almost come to get away from it all. Sunday is the start of the 3rd annual, finite two-week loop of biking, eating, drinking and sleeping on the beautiful island of Maui, or my personal cycling camp. The usual routine is to get up even earlier than at home when I have to go to work, and then leave for a bike ride shortly after sunrise. Last year's highlight was the 10k ft ascent to the summit of Haleakala; this year's ambition is to make the ~100-mile roundtrip from Paia to Hana and back. Actually cycling on Hana Road is completely different compared to what you imagine when driving these roads in a car, and if you have ever driven on the treacherous roads around the West Maui Mountains, the same holds true there: it feels like freedom. Aloha and Out.
