Spalding Mountain Loop bike ride

  • Dec 4, 2012 · 1:00 PM
  • Kealia Beach

Pam told me that this is a beautiful area, and it seems that several of us are interested in going. We'll head up to the Ka'apua Valley, and then return back to the Kealia Beach. Please be on time as we will leave sharply at 1:05 PM. Bring water, helmet is desirable, and sunscreen.

There are quite a few hills! Some parts are a bit steep so I, for one, will be walking some of the hills. If we go at a reasonble pace it should only take 2 hours. In my exploring, I ended up doing it twice in less than 4 hours from different directions.

    One of my favorite places to ride bike.

    This was a great bike course. Pamela showed us an easy back road shortcut that created a loop that went back to our starting point, without having to ride along the highway. Pure genius! Wonderful views along a quiet country road. Challenging hills up, easy coasting down. Very little to no traffic. Saw maybe a dozen cars the whole trip. Highly recommend doing this again.

    Still a maybe - I might come up and eat my lunch at the 10 mile marker picnic shelter and then come with you part of the way. I'm worried that it might be more challenging than I can handle with my limited experience on a bike and no helmet. If I don't come with you, I might just putter along on the bike path. Probably see you there!

    Sounds like a great ride. Timing is not good for me.....hopefully next time. Have fun

    I'm free that day and could do it, but I don't have a helmet yet. I'm waiting for the new 2013 Specialized Helmets with the "hairport" to come in before I buy one. Since this is all road - I'm hesitant to go without a helmet. Will think about it. I've never done this loop and am curious. I might rent a helmet from the place up the street from me.
