Big Island Bike Tour Highlights

 

Many participants on our Hawaii Island bike tours are delighted by the sheer variety of cycling to be had on the Island.

 

In the north, there is the white-sand coast of Waikoloa and the Old Hawaii community of Hawi. South of Hawi you climb up rolling hills to rugged cattle farms. Honoka’a is on the lush, east side of the island while – on the opposite side of the Island – the seaside town of Kona see very little rain. Just south of Kona you find the coffee belt – with stunning views along the coast – as well as some outstanding kayaking and snorkeling. And, then there are the volcanoes!

 

Typically, we collect guests from Kona airport and take them to either Waikoloa or Kailua-Kona to start their trip. Towns visited include Hawi, Waimea and Captain Cook. Those with time may choose to add on a tour to the Volcano National Park or do some kayaking and snorkeling in Kealakekua Bay – or just hang out at the beach.

 

With dedicated van support, you might also choose to circumnavigate the Island.

 

Bike Touring on the Big Island of Hawaii

 

Most of our Big Island bike tours focus on the north and west of the island; where the best weather and the best cycling is. During the tour, you experience four very distinct areas in terms of landscape, climate and culture.

Waikoloa Village has classic white-sand beaches, palm trees and amazing sunsets. The ride around to Hawi takes you to the tropical part of the island where a vibrant artist community blends into “old Hawaii” in a world that feels an age away from the tourist crowds.

It’s a steady climb from Hawi up to Waimea and into cowboy country. The countryside here is reminiscent of Ireland and we guide you down quiet single-track lanes past cattle farms. Many trips end at Captain Cook on the Kona Coast. This is coffee country and also has the best kayaking and snorkeling on the island.

 

Best Times for a Bike Tour on the Big Island of Hawaii

 

There’s no bad time to visit Hawaii. The Big Island enjoys a mild climate year round – with temperatures on the coast between 70°F and 80°F. Winter lasts from November through April and is slightly cooler and wetter. However, your specific location is the real predictor of temperature and rainfall. Generally the west coast is hot and dry. It gets wetter the further west you go and cooler the higher you go.
