Molokai Metric and Rainbow Ride
Kualapu`u School News Release
Kualapu`u School invites all local cycling enthusiasts to come out and ride the Molokai Metric. This first annual event features three course distances; 100K for the fanatical few, 60K for those who want to take on a challenge, and 25K for those who’d prefer a shorter spin. All ride distances will begin at 7 a.m. from Hotel Molokai on Sunday, Jan. 18 (MLK weekend). Ride courses will flow east along the Kamehameha Highway past Kamalo (the first turn around point) to Morris Point (the second turn around point) and then back to the Hotel. From the Hotel, the 100K will make a second loop around Coffee’s of Hawaii and the Airport. All races will end at Hotel Molokai with the post-event party starting at noon.
