Testimonial –

“Thank you Maui Bicycling League. Saturday June 17th was a great experience. Recently my wife (Shirley) and I joined the League because my wife just purchased an electric assist bike so that she could get out and do some rides around Maui. This was our first time meeting the group and the whole experience was fantastic! Before the ride we received an email with detailed information on where to meeting and the type of ride to expect. Upon arriving we were greeted right away and felt very welcomed. The event was well planed and the ride left right on time with leader (Tom) who set a comfortable pace for the group as outlined in the email. It was a beautiful area to ride and the weather was cloudy so it wasn’t too warm and we had just a few drops of rain before turning around. The reason my wife and I join the league was to discover new safe areas to ride and today’s event provided that and so much more. After the ride was over there were refreshments and snacks, and while visiting with other riders we did learn about some other areas that we could safely go ride here on Maui. Looking forward to the next ride and wishing it was a monthly event because it was so much fun!”


Save the Date! 

Sunday, August 20th – MBL ride from Ulupalakua (the winery) to Grandma’s in Kula, and back. More details to come soon!
