Ok, found my old post on our Hawaii plans.

Can anyone tell us if anything has changed in the last year? We just started training again (seriously this time) and will be heading out there in 2011, not 100% on island or the date at this moment.

Back again :) Next year is my wife and I 20 anyversory and we want to ride around one of the islands of Hawaii. I remember bringing it up last year and think Maui was placed high on the list. We have started training and getting out equipment set up, really at the begining of the equipment issue :p We still don't know if we will beable to bring our bikes yet or not, think SUPER tight budget, so shipping the bikes vs renting a few is something still to be researched.

Anyone have comments on panniers good for the Hawaii weather? Personally I don't mind spending the money on quality items but my wife gets kind of funny when the $$ start racking up, so best bang for the bucks would be a good place to start.

I haven't choosen an island yet but plan on getting the topo maps of any routes we like. What maps of the islands would be good to get once we choose the island?

I'm sure more questions will pop up as the time passes and I'll be posting here with all the developments :)

Thanks for the reply :) So far it's looking like the big island will be the best for all of us. Hope to see a few things while out there, so first trip should be a veriety I guess :)

Nice link :) thanks, Ya I figured they would charge an arm and a leg... Was looking at some of the "tour Hawaii" web sites but have no clue yet as to what ones are worth the $$ Still in reaserch mode there :p If you don't mind me asking about how much was the full trip? I'm looking at about 1 week on the island.

Thankyou for the info, still love to hear from others about their experiences...

I am planning to camp most of the trip, do you think that is posable there? Any suggestions on rentals or did you bring over your own bike?

I'll be going there from Fresno, CA. by that time. Didn't think it would be easy to get all our equipment and bikes there as easaly, so renting a reasonable bike would be our first choice.

ANY hints as to where to get local info for this trip would be a huge help :D

My wife and I will be going to Hawaii for our 20th aniversory. It will also be our first real bike tour trip. However I seem to have lost a link to a place in Hawaii that did tours and rentals.

I would love to hear from someone that has toured any of the islands on a bike. Any experiences would be great :D
