LifeCycle Adventures Enters Hawaii Tourism Market

LifeCycle Adventures (, a premier bicycle tour company known for its customized, self-guided tours in California and Oregon, is now offering tours in Hawaii. Tours start and end at Kona Airport on the Big Island and are booking now for departure dates from September, 2012.

“We’re thrilled to offer a way to experience Hawaii that’s more than just the run-of-the-mill hotel, beach and pool package,” said Tony Blakey, LifeCycle Adventures founder. “Our clients can see ‘Old Hawaii’ from the best vantage point: two wheels. There’s an intimacy and sensitivity to this type of travel that make it a great way to enjoy one of the most beautiful and unspoiled parts of a uniquely American paradise.”

Big Island, Hawaii is a tropical paradise but there’s so much more to this island than white sand beaches and palm trees. These Hawaii bike tours focus on the north and west of the island, home to the best weather and the best cycling. Guests get to experience four very distinct areas in terms of landscape, climate, history and culture. Sample rides include:

  • Waikoloa to Hawi (pronounced Ha-vee) – On this ride, lava fields give way to grasslands, and then the landscape becomes lush before arriving in Hawi.  Hawi is tropical, relaxed Hawaii at its best – and home to a vibrant artist community.  En route you visit a National Historic Site as well as world-renowned beaches.
  • Hawi to Waimea (Kamuela) – Great for those who like climbing hills on two wheels. In just a few miles, you transition from the lush, tropical world of Hawi to the open cattle ranches of Waimea highlands – with its rolling hills and quiet lanes. In the distance you’ll see Mauna Kea – at 13,796 feet it’s the highest point in the state.
  • In and around Waimea — Cruise down to Honokaa on the east coast and on to the stunning Waipio Valley Lookout. The return ride is on the Old Mamalahoa highway – a great opportunity to ride along quiet lanes under hanging vines and tropical flowers.
  • Waimea to Captain Cook — you cruise downhill to the coast while enjoying stunning views out to the ocean.  From here, you head south along the oceanfront past many small beaches to the town of Captain Cook.  Captain Cook is in the heart of Kona coffee country and has some of the best snorkeling on the island.  Ideal for those wanting to end the trip with a sip & splash!
