HONOLULU CENTURY RIDE 2023 PHOTO ALBUM

Aloha!
The entry for this year’s Honolulu Century Ride has begun.
The exhilaration of cycling in Hawaii is…
Such a special experience that even after nine months, it hasn’t faded.
After participating just once, I can understand how regular riders feel.
This sense of freedom and accomplishment is addictive!
What kind of scenery will we see this year? 🌈
Let’s look back at last year’s event through photos.

Starts early in the morning at 6:20 a.m.
From just after 5 a.m., before sunrise, riders steadily gather at the starting point.
The front row consists of VIP entry participants.
The first photo point is Diamond Head. Enjoy the fun ride!
As the sun finally begins to rise, we approach Kalanianaole Highway.
I didn’t realize riding early in the morning could feel this good!
To the first aid station among the four, Sandy Beach Park.
At the 40km mark. Still going strong!

Encountered a nice group.
We’re descending Kalanianaole Highway steadily.
The course heads towards the famous area known for filming “Jurassic Park.”
What a beautiful Hawaiian day!!
At the mechanic repair booth. Riders also help each other out.
Enjoying a comfortable ride with low humidity while admiring the wild nature is unique to Hawaii.
Mr. Kurihara repaired Editor M’s puncture. He was participating as a mechanic accompanying Tobu Top Tours. I met many wonderful people during the ride. That’s what makes fan rides special!
Heading towards the 100-mile turnaround point on Kamehameha Highway. It’s a flat and easy road to ride on.
Finally! The fourth aid station at Swanzy Beach Park. Riders on the 80km = 50 mile course complete their ride here. Here’s hoping I clear it within the time limit!
The volunteers are also cheerful.
The moment of completing 100 miles!
Completing the ride as a group feels great!
With special people who came to cheer him on
Completed the 100-mile ride, it was a great ride!

The large rainbow evokes the feeling of being in paradise. I encountered it several times during my stay and couldn’t help but take a photo each time.

What kind of ride awaits us this year?
Let’s meet at the Honolulu Century Ride 2024! 🌈
