Today our article is by guest writer, our son in law, Chad. He agreed to share some of their Maui adventures with us while using our Maui Garden House in Kihei as their base. Tammy and Chad are triathletes so cycling around West Maui was a challenge they couldn't resist. Read on.
Lobster boy and Cervelo Girl Tackle West Maui
I should point out the title of the post indicates my nickname for the trip. Yesterday we spent 2 1/2 hours at Polo Beach in South Maui. It is a beautiful shallow, sandy beach with very clear water. Not great for snorkeling but it was fantastic for doing some body surfing. Tammy knows very well that I am a water baby and when I see water I am in it until I get called that it is time to go (I don't think I'll ever grow up).
After all the playing in the waves we made a choice to get up early and ride around West Maui. We heard that it is very beautiful and low in traffic (in certain areas). We mapped it out and saw that it was 110km from the front of our door in Kihei. Kinda a big ride, but we were confident that we were capable. We started early to avoid the heat of the day.
Now after a shower and some pool time I feel better, but that was a shattering ride. Tonight we might devour enough food for a family of six.
