Mauna Loa Tour

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 pavement and are not comfortable in the dirt.  Also, the elevation is not as taxing as Mauna Kea. This is a very popular tour.
