Mosk and I headed out this morning for one of our standard Saturday Maui mountain bike rides. We left from our Maui bike shop in the heart of Lahaina at 7am. The morning air was crisp, a bone chilling 70 degrees. We headed up the old cane haul road above the Lahaina Cannery Mall towards Kaanapali. If you follow this road it spills out into the Kaanapali Coffee Plantation. We take a secret route up the mountain and it’s a tough trek but its worth it because it’s a great Maui trail ride. It takes a out 45 minutes to climb to the top. When you get there you are rewarded with an awesome single track down through the forest. Lots of trees and roots. It’s actually pretty smooth for a Maui trail. We ended up back at the bike shop about 10am. For mountain bike rentals head to Boss Frogs bike shop in Lahaina, or reserve your bike online at mauiroadbikerentals.com.
