Put on your cycling gear, get on your exercise bike and take to the road in Hawaii with George Hincapie while taking in the island’s beautiful scenery. The series alternates between:

  • Interval workouts of progressive difficulty to build your endurance on iconic routes, such as the Road to Hana and the rolling green hills of Kapoho Road. Your training sessions are accompanied by your coach’s anecdotes about his journey to becoming a world-class athlete, the difficulties he encountered and how he overcame them, his key exercises to progress, etc.
  • Inclined plane cycling sessions to build strength, improve technique, burn calories and develop muscle power. Climb Haleakalā Volcano, experience the thrill of approaching Kilauea Volcano, the world’s most active volcano, and see the rocky lava flows as you climb Mauna Kea Volcano!
  • Recover in the hilly landscape of Maui or, for the finale of this breathtaking series, on a winding route along the rugged coastline of the Kahekili Highway.

During these 12 incredible sessions, you will work at an RPE (Rating of Perceived Exertion) of 3 to 6-7 and your coach will offer you exercises both in and out of the saddle.
