Climbing by bike in Hawaii (Maui and the Island of Hawaii [Big Island]) is an extraordinary experience offering the highest concentration of extreme climbs than any other place in the world. The Island of Hawaii (Big Island) is home to the most difficult bike climb in the world (by far; Mauna Kea) and the longest continuous climb in the world (by far; Mauna Loa) - throw in Kaloko Dr out of Kona (#11 U.S./#86 World). Travel 45 minutes by air to Maui and take on the World's #11 and U.S. #2 climb (Haleakala) and World #60/US #9 (Waipoli Rd) . . or . . . just sit on the beach and sip banana daiquiris . . . you really can't go wrong! :)
