Huggacast 142: Waimea Canyon

“Going like 4, but will tell everyone we did 12 mph.”

This Huggacast is video from a tough climb up Waimea Canyon in Kauai. 4 thousand feet, 18 miles with 8 - 12% grade up into a rainstorm that pelted us and stung our faces on the fast descent.

The ride ended with a rainbow all the way across the sky. waimea_climb_rainbow.jpg
