Welcome to the Mauna Kea Hawaii Epic Cycling Tour, the mother of all epic cycling tours. There are four ways to get to the top with an elevation gain of 14,000 to 17,200 feet. Why do they call it the hardest climb in the world? Well, more than seven to nine hours of saddle time climbing up to 14,000 feet and all the incredibly steep grades. The roads turn to dirt within six miles from the top and offer four miles of very challenging gravel road. The weather can always play a factor here. Altitude sickness, it's a real thing for some. Everything on this epic ride comes into play including diet, nutrition, and cramping. We've seen it all. This is what makes the most epic and hardest climb in the world. The best part is we're here to prepare you to make sure that you will give 100 percent toward finishing and conquering this beast. Our full professional support has one goal in mind, for you to accomplish yours. There are two routes that you can take to the top of Mauna Kea. Route one has three start choices. You can start at Kona Pier, Waikoloa Beach Start, or Hilo Start. Each go up to the summit of Mauna Kea hits 14,400 vertical feet and a distance between 52 to 56 miles. Route two, here you go. The granddaddy of all. What they call the impossible climb. Very few have succeeded in this climb. Has our highest DES rating of 10 plus. This starts off at the beautiful sands of Wape'u Valley Beach. You are standing in the sand at sunrise. Then you start climbing right away. First, you hit one kilometer of about 30 percent climbing.95 percent of this whole course is on the dirt and you're talking about 75 miles. About nine to ten hours in the saddle. This is the king of epic.

ML4.jfif

The baby sister to the Beast, Mauna Kea. Don’t underestimate this climb. With 3 options to start from (routes Kona Pier, Waikoloa Beach, or Hilo) and 11,600 ft of elevation and 68 to 70 miles, it is Epic in its own right. The entire route is on paved roads and can be done on a road bike, gravel bike, or mountain bike.

Gear selection is key to make sure you have the legs to summit this Volcano. One of the best parts of this ride is the last 25 miles. Single-lane road with butter-smooth pavement that climbs and winds through lava fields. The views are spectacular.  This tour is great if you want to stay on the pavement and are not comfortable in the dirt.  Also, the elevation is not as taxing as Mauna Kea. This is a very popular tour.

Ironman Championship Course

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to ride, swim, and run the FULL Ironman Championship Cycling Course? Kona,  home of the Ironman World Championships!! The best part is the swim course is always marked by buoys year round. The run and bike routes are always open. We have lots of people that visit and want to do the course. Some do it all in one day and some break it up over 3 days. Whatever you decide we will be by your side with full support for the entire private event.  This is called world championships for a reason.

The swim is demanding and long. The bike course has 4,000 feet of elevation gain with trade winds that can play a big factor in your overall pace and time. The Run is hilly and hot but with beautiful ocean views.  Running through lava fields can expose you to the heat this island has to offer. So the question is, are you Epic enough to tackle the Championship Ironman course? You can do the individual sports of the Ironman or break them in multiple days. It's up to you and what you can handle.
