We’re so excited to host the 2020 Molokai Metric Century Bike Tour on Molokai! This challenging race draws in cyclists across the state, country, and beyond – maybe we’ll see you here for the 2020 or 2021 race!

Kalaupapa Lookout

Molokai is an incredibly individual island. One of the United States’ most beautiful landscapes, Molokai is home to lush forests, expansive beaches, and the world’s tallest seacliffs. Though the island is relatively small, winding roads and paths often encourage travelers to take the long way; after all, there’s no rushing here.


The 2020 Molokai Metric Century Bike tour offers cyclists a unique opportunity to explore this unique location. It is self-described as a “rare 100K bicycle tour of the island of Molokai, Hawaii.” Yes, this is a race, and a winner will be named, but more than anything, this event gives participants an exclusive tour of the island.

About the Races 

The Metric Century Bike Tour is an annual event comprised of two races. On Saturday, January 18, riders will participate in the Uphill Challenge. This race will take occur from Holomua Junction and continue to Kalaupapa Lookout. This course is only 5-miles long, but the name of this event tells you everything you need to know: it’s uphill, and it’s challenging! In years past, riders were encouraged to join a comfortable 12-mile cool-down ride, and this year will likely be the same! 


The second event is the Molokai Metric Century Bike Tour on Sunday, January 19. For this event, riders will attempt to ride 62 miles in under 5 hours. The ride is roundtrip, beginning and ending at our proud Hotel Molokai! Perfect for early-risers (or those who want to experience the profound beauty of a Molokai sunrise), the race begins at 7:00 AM. This race is certainly a challenge, and after 62 miles, you’ll be relieved to be back at your hotel room! The first-place prize for this exciting adventure is free admission into the Molokai Metric Century Bike Tour in 2021!
