The early morning pick up at the resort was a killer, but Alika/Alex made it tolerable. He was very pleasant and knowledgeable and shared some great information. Picking up gear was easy and then another ride to the top of the mountain. Alika/Alex made the route very clear with lots of pointers - stressing the $20 turn! At the top, it was cold but we were prepared. It would have been nice to have had some coffee or hot chocolate - wish I had thought of that at the bottom. Once the sun was up ( a stunning event to watch) we warmed up in the van while riding to the staging area to get our bikes. The bike I was given and 'sized' to fit was still a bit too short for me, but I was able to adjust the seat myself on our first stop. The ride down was a blast - so easy to go down hill! We had expert, intermediate and non riders (rode as a child, not adult) and everyone did fine. Stopped at the Kula Lodge for an amazing breakfast and then back on the road. The trip down went really fast, would have liked to do some more downhill riding like that! The only concerns I have were that some of the bike lane wasn't really enough - so riding in the middle of the road was necessary (we were OK with that, but some cars might not have been). Also the bike fitting - I tried to tell the guy (not Alika/Alex) that it was too short, my knees were too bent, but he 'knew' more than me. I would have had some great knee pain if I'd kept the seat where he had it but I knew how to adjust it myself. A beginner might not have. If we come back to Maui, this trip is first on our list! We loved that it was unguided and we could go at our own speed!
