Based on the Kona side of the Big Island of Hawaii, HCC has been one of the State of Hawaii's premier road, mountain and multisport cycling and community organizations. In addition to its appeal with recreational and competitive cyclists, the club is also a community-oriented group that is dedicated to helping Big Island residents have a safe and rewarding experience by offering opportunities for all levels of riders, working toward making the roads more ride-able, and supporting rider safety. Check the menu items above for things like weekly rides, routes and upcoming events.
HCC is a volunteer-based nonprofit organization and depends on your membership and participation for everything we do. And of course a special shout-out to our great sponsors: Bikeworks, Kiser Motorcycles and Metzler Contracting.

SEA TO STARS ROAD RACE
AKA: MAUNA KEA VOLCANO CHALLENGE

The race will follow the old Sea to Stars course that begins in Hilo at Puainako St. & Komohana St. The 32.5 mile course is pretty straightforward, continue until you turn right up the Mauna Kea Access Road. There is 8734 ft. elevation gain and rated HC average grade 5%.
It's that time again folks! You have just a couple more days to get your entries in for the most epic cycling event Hawaii has to offer!!
Entries close July 31st, so you don't want to miss this one!
The course starts at the intersection of Waikoloa Road & the Queen K. Course goes up Waikoloa to make a left on the upper highway. The next turn is to the right, on to the scenic old saddle road. Old Saddle will merge with New Saddle to take you to the base of the Mauna Kea Access road. From there, its six miles up to the finish line at the Mauna Kea Visitor’s Center. 48 miles and 9,700 feet of elevation gain. This race is not for the faint of heart!
