    So it would seem that Hubby has got a postdoc position on Oahu Based at the university at Manoa......I'm hoping to move out there at the end of the year

    Can anyone tell me what the cycling is like on the island ? Are there organised rides ?? Ladies ride group ??? good bike shops in the area ???

    I'm a recreational road rider that like organised rides and i'm keen to get a new mountain bike as i understand the off road biking is great there Am I better buying one in the mainland on the way over ?? I'm a fan of Specialized so hopign to get one cheaper than in NZ before I leave

    Any info would be greatly appreicated

    But don't give up hope. O`ahu is still an incredibly gorgeous place to ride!

    thanks for your imput hmmmmmmmmmm.... most NZ road don't have bike lanes so hopefully I'll cope (although the other side of the road will get some use too !!! ) .... I'm also use to NZ drivers which are legendary for being bad drivers

    Our contact is coming over to stay for a few days so hoping to pick up what the trails are like, I'm figuring I might be safer on them to start off with ...........

    Just trying to find a suitable mountain bike to take over...
