Top-Rated Pro Sports Tour Guide

 

      My name is Chris DeMarchi.  I started Hawaii Epic Cycling to bring cyclists and athletes around the world to The Big Island for one thing, to cross an epic tour off their bucket list. The Big Island in its own right, has some of the most amazing rides you can dream up.  From long Century rides along beaches to the number one ranked climb in the world, Mauna Kea.  Of course, the Ironman World Championship course is always popular, and we will be by your side every stroke, pedal, and step you take.​

 

I have spent time around the world riding and racing on some very respectful climbs and routes.  Over time, I noticed that just riding a climb was not enough.  I wanted more, I wanted to ride long and with Multiple climbs.  100-plus mile days with 10,000 to 20,000 feet of elevation gain.  Soon, it became a challenge to keep setting the bar higher and higher. Ultimately racing my bike across the USA and setting world records doing it. This was the moment that I wanted to bring these experiences to one place where people could come vacation and ride their bikes on some of the best terrain in the world!! 

 

My Dream of making your dreams happen here on The Big Island is in full effect.

Florian Bogge

Top-Rated Pro Sports Tour Guide

 

 My name is Florian Bogge, a former professional cyclist and triathlete, now dedicated to sharing the thrill of endurance sports with enthusiasts and aspiring athletes alike. Born in Germany, I was immersed in the rich European pro cycling culture from the age of 12, honing my skills at the Olympic training center. This foundation paved the way for my successful professional journey, gracing some of Europe's most iconic cycling routes.

 

During my business school tenure, my quest for broader horizons led me to triathlon, unfolding a world-spanning career that eventually brought me to the beautiful shores of Hawaii, a place I now proudly call home. Beyond the sheer adrenaline of competition, my greatest fulfillment comes from guiding and inspiring others through Hawaii Epic Cycling, a business I run with a great friend and mentor Chris DeMarchi.

 

With a wealth of experience and an unyielding passion for adventure, I am committed to helping athletes discover their potential, push boundaries, and experience the profound joy of endurance sports. Join me in embracing the spirit of discovery and let's unlock epic adventures together!
