and Cycling on Molokai
Road biking is discouraged on most of the
Hawaiian Islands, but not so on Molokai. The traffic is light, and
the open expanses and small size of Molokai make for excellent cycling.
Biking is an excellent way to see the island, and less expensive than
renting a car. There are over 50 miles of mountain biking trails
on Molokai as well, with fabulous mountain and ocean views, and exciting
singletrack, oceanside, and desert rides. In his book,
Mountain Biking the Hawaiian Islands, John Alford describes the ups
and downs of such riding areas as Molokai Ranch, The Molokai Forest Reserve,
and Puu O'Hoku Ranch.
