Need to refresh the memory of your cycling vacation on Maui? Check out our cycling gear page or stop in the Lahaina bike shop on your next visit to West Maui. In anticipation of spring and summer biking, we added a bunch of new bike gear and cycling clothing with the latest West Maui Cycles logo design. From a new under saddle gear bag and better tasting bike water bottle to our newest bike jerseys and tshirts, rely on West Maui Cycles for plenty of new bike gear being available at the Lahaina bike shop or when you order online. And all the new cycling gear displays the latest evolution of our beloved West Maui Cycles logo.

Speaking of better tasting bike water bottles, take a look at the newest cycling water bottles from Purist. To make your bike water bottle taste and work like regular glass, Purist hydration bottles utilize a special lining to avoid typical bad taste and coloration just like glass containers. Our West Maui Cycles logo-ized Purist water bottles are only $9.95 in the bike store or when ordered(plus tax and shipping).

To show off the new gear, we've been sprucing up our bike store website too. We wanted to make it faster and easier for you to get to the information about Maui bike rentals, rides on Maui or anything else cycling related on Maui you need! The new 'road grey' color reflects road cycling on Maui while the 'brownish rust' colors represent off road trail riding with homage to the famous red dirt mountain bikers on Maui fondly love. We aimed for the changes to make it easier and quicker for you choose a bike rental for a cycling vacation or to get information about group rides or where to ride a bicycle on Maui. Let us know if you like the new colors and other modifications or let us know what you would like to find on our website and what you think would make our bike shop website better serve your needs as a cyclist visiting Maui or as a resident seeking a bike shop on Maui.

Top 4 Benefits of a Maui Bike Rental for a Cycling Vacation in Hawaii

James Boote

Planning a Maui cycling vacation? Trying to decide if you should ship a bike to Maui or if getting a bike rental on Maui save money and time? Indeed, a difficult choice for many bike riders who love riding their own bicycle. We understand and want to help you enjoy your cycling vacation.

To help you make an informed choice, we present 4 benefits of riding a Maui bike rental instead of shipping a bike to Maui:

west-maui-cycles-maui-bicycle-shop.jpg
  • Renting a bike on Maui gives you more riding time. You won't need to spend time packing and preparing your bike before you depart for your Maui cycling vacation. And, when you rent a bike instead of shipping a bicycle to Maui, you'll be on your bike road riding (or mountain biking) sooner and avoid wasting precious vacation time unpacking and assembling your bike at your hotel or vacation rental. Yes, you'll spend a few minutes to pick up your rental bike while we adjust it for you and install your pedals. Wouldn't you rather spend time hanging out in a bike store than at the airport waiting on your 'oversize cargo' to be available in baggage claim. Most of our customers install the bike car rack while we are processing their bike rental.
  • Avoids risk of damage to your own bicycle. The airlines are notorious for abusing bicycles shipped to Hawaii. Avoid arriving on Maui all set to enjoy your long overdue cycling vacation only to be disappointed to find your bike damaged by the airline and needing to waste more time dealing with the airline and processing damage claims. Don't risk it, rent a bike on Maui!

Have you shipped a bike to Maui or used a Maui bike rental? Please share your experiences of renting a bike on Maui or shipping your bike for a cycling vacation in the comments section below.

Regardless of your decision to ship your bicycle or to rent a bike on Maui, we want you to enjoy bike riding on Maui! Whatever you decide, stop into our West Maui bike store in Lahaina to talk story about bike riding on Maui. In addition to performance road bike rentals, performance mountain bike rentals, Electra cruisers and hybrid bicycles for rent, we are a full service bike shop providing bicycle repairs and offer a complete line of bicycle parts and bike gear. Stop in to get a West Maui Cycles logo bike jersey or shop online for bike gear after you return home from a cycling vacation on Maui!

Specialized Athletes Compete in XTerra Maui Post Tsunami

James Boote

maui-xterra-bike-rentals--specialized-1210281285.jpg

Does traveling the world as a professional cycle rider backed by a world class bike manufacturer sound like a glamorous life full of adventure? After working with the athletes competing in the XTerra World Championship at Kapalua and the TriLanai, I can attest to the effort these world class athletes expend for their sport! Have you ever considered what these world class XTerra triathletes go through on race day or training to get ready for races?

The Race Must Go on! Even a Tsunami can't stop XTerra Maui.

Though few would argue it is not an exciting life worth pursuing, pro cycling is not all fun and games all the time. In some cases, including the most recent XTerra Maui races when a tsunami threatened the XTerra World Championship race itself, some of the competing athletes were forced to compete with minimal sleep after a restless night complete with tsunami evacuation sirens. Watch the 2012 XTerra race day unfold in the following video with the Specialized bike race team:

Thanks to Specialized Bikes and the I Am Specialized bike team for the XTerra Maui video above.
