Lieto Gets 2nd Place In Maui's Cycle To The Sun!
The race is open to individuals and teams with a limit of 200 riders. Bikers start in the historic north shore town of Paia and wind their way upcountry through sugar cane and pineapple fields past the Paniolo town of Makawao and into the scenic pasturelands of Olinda. Ride along rolling fields and through Eucalyptus groves in route to pine forests at the 6,500' tree line. Beyond the tree line is another 11 quad burning miles as the road traverses up the side of the dormant volcano Haleakala. A half mile from the summit you can see the finish line as the grade now steepens to 19%!
