Soon after arriving at the bike shop in Lahaina (West Maui Cycles) and beginning the day getting a few island bike rentals out to riders picking up bikes, I answered a phone call. The caller arrives on Maui this Saturday and is planning a few bike rides during her Maui bicycle vacation. Being an avid road bike rider, she had already made her online bike rental reservation for our Specialized Performance Road bike rental to enjoy a week of bike touring on Maui. She suddenly realized she’ll be here over Valentine’s Day and had not planned on riding with her fiancé. Now, she wanted to spend Valentine’s day with her fiancé and was calling to inquire if we rent bikes suitable for an inexperienced bike rider in good condition. She also asked if I had any good ideas for fun bike rides on Maui, where she and her fiancé could enjoy a romantic valentines day togethor touring Maui by bicycle.
I thought for about a half a second before recommending she rent our Electra HellBetty tandem cruiser for a morning of leisurely riding in Lahaina. Since their accommodations are in Kaanapali, the bike shop in Lahaina will be easy to get to and a good point to begin their day of bike riding on Maui after picking up their rental bike. I suggested riding the Electra HellBetty tandem into Lahaina Town for a leisurely cruise on Front Street followed by a mid-morning breakfast at one of the charming restaurants in Lahaina. Since we include a lock with our bike rentals, it will be easy to secure the bike rental while enjoying breakfast. After exploring Lahaina by bicycle, they’ll come back to the bike shop to pick up a couple Specialized Hybrid comfort bike rentals. For the second half of their fun day of bike riding on Maui, I suggested the Lahaina to Olowalu Petroglyphs bike ride. The bike ride to the Olowalu petroglyph is approximately 6.3 miles and another mile or so of easy off road trail riding to and from the petroglyph. I recommended a stop for lunch at Leoda’s Sandwich and Pie Shop in Olowalu before returning to the bike shop to drop off their hybrid bike rentals in Lahaina.
