KAUAI INFORMATION FOR CONDO RENTERS


 

Pedaling in Kauai

This information is compiled to assist guests who rent our Condo at the Cliffs Resort.  If you've arrived at this page as a result of a web search on Kauai Bicycle, we hope you benefit from the information.  And if you need lodging, thank you for considering us.

MOTORCYCLISTS: Note:  If you thought biking meant motorcycles, fear not.  There is a company that rents Harley's: Ray's Motorcycle Rental at 808 822-4644 from $125-$200 per day .  Make certain to have a motorcycle endorsement on your Drivers License.


BICYCLISTS:  If you are looking for a fun way to explore Kauai's small towns while exercising in the great outdoors, renting a bicycle could be the right answer for you.  Rental stores have accessories such as helmet, water bottles, and bike rack for your car so you may safely explore several different areas.

Others prefer to coast down Kauai's most popular bike itinery.  Descend 12 miles from the rim of the colorful Waimea Canyon to the coast of the deep blue Pacific Ocean.  Guided tours start at all times, including a sunrise tour where you watch the sun come up over Waimea canyon and a sunset tour where you watch the forbidden island of Niihau swallow the setting sun. 

Another popular biking tour takes you on an old cane road through a former sugar plantation, rain forests, and scenic vistas to Hawaii's first sugar mill.  Ride on to Mahaulepa Beach where you enjoy a picnic lunch and watch for sea turtles.  This tour is on level ground the whole way. 

The back roads of Kauai are home to some excellent mountain biking.  You get to see far more of rural Hawaii than is possible in your rental car.  Mountain biking requires some level of fitness and biking skill.

Others may wish to 'do it yourself'.  An excellent place is the general Poipu area which has wide, flat roads and several dirt-sugar cane roads.  On the north shore, the cane road between Kealia Beach and Anahola is excellent.
