The annual Hawaii Century ride is a showcase of the most beautiful country roads in the state. Including the Akoni Pule Highway, Kohala Mountain Road, Mamalahoa Hwy (Hawaii Belt Road), and the Queen Kaahumanu Hwy.
All proceeds donated to our charity partner, Kona Hospice, whose efforts help thousands of local families cope with serious illness.
The Century route is a loop course of ~110mi with elevation gain of ~6500ft. Starting at Spencer Beach Park, the route follows the Ironman World Championship course North to the plantation era town of Hawi. Riders then climb Kohala Mt Road and descend into picturesque Waimea. After refueling, the route continues South at cool and breezy elevation along Mamalahoa Hwy to Kailua Kona. They return to Spencer Beach Park via the coastal Queen Kaahumanu Hwy.
Half-metric and Metric Century riders will find a challenging and scenic ride on the North section of the Century route between Kawaihae and Hawi, and Kawaihae and Waimea, respectively.
Friendly riders, great aid stations, souvenir tshirt, and post-ride local grinds make for an epic day on your bike you wil never forget.
