HAWAII CYCLING CLUB
Honaunau Cycle Challenge
Sunday, September 18, 2022


A Gran Fondo is a combination of easy riding with intervals of racing.  The Honaunau CC's 6 hills are individual training time trials.

Being virtual, cyclists will start at any time, keep their own time, provide their own hydration and nutrition, and report with screen shots of their bike computer for each racing section.  Report race section results to Nick Yamasaki at nicolasyamasaki@gmail.com no later than 11:59pm on the day of event.

Participants have 3 choices
(1) riding one - 5 hills in any order;
(2) riding all six hills in order; and
(3) riding a 2nd loop of all 6 hills in order.

But, must be completed on Sunday, September 18, 2022. Those riding 2 loops of 6 hills are requested to check in with Tom Solis at Solis home - on the way down hill after hill 6 finish.
======================================
Getting to the Start Line: Ride from home. Ride from Keauhou Shopping Center (Park in North End of parking lot near theaters). Park on Alii Dr. near the Start Line).

The full ride of 6 hills from start to finish and return to start will be 51 miles with only about 17 miles of actual racing and total vertical gain of 5,721 feet. This vertical gain through the 6 racing hills will challenge all riders
