Our flight from Toronto was delayed but that didn’t impact our schedule as we had a four hour layover in LA. Sadly our flight from LA was delayed by more than two hours which meant we didn’t get to Maui until 9pm – missing the welcome reception.

Once we arrived at the Maui airport Ed from Maui Cycling Camps was there to pick up up and take us to the Four Seasons. Arriving at the hotel we felt like stars – the staff unloaded our gear, took our luggage to the room, and my bike off to the mechanics to be assembled and readied for the next day of riding. An unexpected treat not having to put it together myself!

We called it a night and hit the hay knowing that our bodies will wake us up on Toronto time in a few hours.
