Cruising Kalapana Beach Road

As the sun rises over the Pacific Ocean, you’ll begin your journey along Kalapana Beach Road, a coastal gem on the Big Island of Hawaii. The road winds its way through ancient lava fields, offering breathtaking views of the rugged coastline. Feel the ocean breeze on your face as you ride along this scenic route, and marvel at the unique terrain formed by past volcanic activity.

Kalapana Beach Road isn’t just a road; it’s a journey through time and nature. As you pedal along, take a moment to appreciate the contrast between the lush vegetation and the stark black lava rock. Keep an eye out for remnants of a once-thriving community swallowed by lava in the 1990s, a poignant reminder of the island’s geological history.

Venturing into Volcanoes National Park

The adventure continues as you seamlessly transition from Kalapana Beach Road into the heart of Volcanoes National Park. Here, you’ll discover a landscape shaped by the forces of nature, with steaming craters, lava tubes, and lush rainforests waiting to be explored.

Riding your e-bike through the park allows you to cover more ground and access areas that are less frequented by traditional vehicles. Feel the thrill as you navigate through lush rainforests, marvel at the vibrant flora and fauna, and perhaps even catch a glimpse of the park’s unique wildlife, including the elusive nēnē (Hawaiian goose).
