Photo submitted by Gideon Garcia, “Earlier this month I made a successful ascent of Haleakalā on Maui. Awesome ride, not too much traffic, and thankfully not too rainy on the mountain that day. Took about 5.5 hours of biking time to go from sea to summit, just over 10,000 feet of climbing. My trusty 2014 steel Kona Rove performed flawlessly. Did upgrade it with a new wheelset for this trip with 700×32 Gatorskins instead of my usual gravel/cyclocross wheelset. Other than that, just a solid bike! Three months of indoor training this winter with the ROUVY app and a Saris H3 trainer prepared me well for this challenge. Much rather be riding outdoors than stuck in my garage. Thankfully, spring is right around the corner!”
