Spending 24 Hrs in Kona

As part of a longer trip to Kaui/Oahu, I will be taking a 24 hour visit to Kona. Fly in AM Thurs, leave AM Fri-the first week of Feb. I am an Ironman athlete and am interested in seeing the venue of IM Kona. I'll be alone, bike shorts, shoes, that's about it for 24 Hrs. I need to get from the airport to a bike shop and hotel, and back. I would like to ride part of the bike route, swim part of that venue, maybe run part of that route. I need a good bike and a cheap hotel-and a shuttle from one or the other to and from and the aiport-or within walking distance. Any suggestions? Or is this silly?

THS is a mini-triatahlon in its self.

A taxi rt the airport will cost more than a rental car.

to stay down-town the KIng Kam it the only real choice... it is at the finish line.

this will not be a tranquil visit.....good luck
