Its always fun to scour Internet to find videos from visitors sharing their Maui biking experiences. This week I found a fun video from BMX rider Ryan Worcester riding his bike around Maui both on the road and on the mountain bike trails. Ryan made the most of his oportunity to use his bike to explore and go sightseeing during a cycling vacation on Maui last year.
The short video includes Ryan riding the red dirt trail at Honolua Bay in West Maui followed by a segment at 2 min 25 sec pont with Ryan riding his bike on a trail in the bamboo forest out past Hana. Don't miss BMX riding in Lahaina at 1 min 15 second mark where Ryan shows off his skills with a little riding exhibit in the cement drainage ditch just behind West Maui Cycles bike shop in Lahaina. If you‘ve been thinking about a Maui bike vacation but weren’t sure if you would find enough riding, watch Ryan’s video experience of his rides on Maui. Then, go to the bottom to make a bike rental reservation and get that plane ticket to Hawaii booked! Or, scroll down a little to watch a bike frame builder from England who wanted to test his ideas of building a fast bike.
As the video above shows, there are plenty of types of riding available for every type of bike rider on Maui! After seeing the new performance road bikes Specialized demo'd at last month's dealer event in Colorado and being added to our rental fleet with anticipated arrival before the year end holiday season, I guess I must have fast road bikes built for speed on my mind. If you like interesting bike engineering and going fast, take a look at the next bike video featuring an English bike frame builder who shares his enthusiasm for speed and bicycle engineering. After he matched a frame with standard off the shelf everyday bike components and a huge customized crank, the team was able to get the bike up to 60 mph on their first open road trial! Next, for 'safety reasons', they took the bike to an old abandoned airstrip, patched the cracks in the 2 miles of pavement and were able to hit 80 mph pedaling on flat ground. But not before a few moments of trepidation as the rider explains in the video:
"After feeling low and vulnerable asking why am I doing this, you step on the bike and get a mad moment where it doesn’t matter what the hell happens, all you care about is focusing on that bumper and you don’t give a shit, you just pedal that thing till the wheels fall off"
