In contrast to the hard work of Mr. Steepy, the road to Hana on a bike is a relaxing pleasure. That’s not to say it couldn’t be a tough day, but we rode it at a tourist pace, enjoying the curves and scenery and the more rhythmic climbs. Hana is the least developed area of Maui and a nice change from the crowded resorts.
Once every hour or so, we also appreciated our bikes even more, when a line of cars would roll by stuck behind a tourist bus with obviously frustrated drivers. We also enjoyed flying through the S-turns while they waited behind us.
