The Gnarly-ness Of Haleakala

After thai food with the parentals and checking into the Ritz, we were in bed and back up by 1 FREAKING am. It took about an hour and a half to get to the bike company – the bottom of Haleakala. We sat around while the company got everyone else situated. We all got onto a bus and made our way up by 3:45 am. It was FREEZING up there!! The layers we had on and the windbreakers they provided were not enough.

Good morning, boys!

We ate next to the Haleakala Bike Co. office – The North Shore Cafe. We definitely got some looks from locals. The food was delish though. So, worth it.
