3 Reasons Why You Should Bike Around Kona, Hawaii

When you’re exploring the breathtaking beauty of Kona, Hawaii, the only thing that can get you down is the walking. There’s so much to see, after all, but you don’t have to be so hard on your feet. Why not get a bike or even better – an eBike!

Pedal when you like or let the motor do the work, an eBike opens up the world around you, allowing you to conveniently zip wherever you want and even wander your way off the beaten path.

Today we’re going to talk a little about the difference an eBike can make on your Hawaiian adventure. We’ll give you a hint – Once you’ve experienced an eBike vacation, you’re gonna want one of these bikes every time you travel! 

1. eBikes Can Really Go Off the Beaten Path

If there is pavement, then you can take advantage of it, and this comes in handy when you want to explore Kona. If you didn’t have an eBike with you, a trip to Kahaluu beach might take up the entire day, but with one you could easily head further south afterwards and snorkel with Manta Rays in Keahu Bay.

An eBike basically extends your range, as otherwise you’d have to walk or taxi everywhere and we’ve all been on enough trips to know how tiring and expensive that can be!

It seems like a small thing, but you really won’t believe just how much more you’ll see by adding an eBike to your vacation equation.

2. Hiking and Biking Works Well With eBikes

If you like biking and hiking, then an eBike is a very practical way to enhance your enjoyment of both. An eBike has both pedals and a motor, so you can move along bike trails and roads whichever way you like. 

That eBike will also get you to hiking spots like the Kiholo Bay trail or the famous Pu'u Wa'awa'a Cinder Cone Trail. Once you’re done with your walkabout, getting home will be a breeze on the back of your comfy eBike as it motors you back home to relax a little before you check out the Kona district nightlife.

3. Convenient, Cost-Effective, and Environmentally Friendly

While you could certainly rent a car, you’re going to be spending a small fortune on gas and a lot of time looking for close places to park – and you won’t always find a close spot with a big, ol’ car!

eBikes, on the other hand, are easy to park and since they’re electric, you can save that money that would have gone to gas or use it to treat yourself a little more on your vacation. You also get the peace of mind that comes with an environmentally-friendly form of transportation. 

eBikes get around 30 miles per charge and for most folks, that’s going to last all day. Since your motor isn’t guzzling gas, your tiny carbon footprint will help to ensure that Kona stays just as beautiful as the first day you found it.


With Kona Fat Bikes, The Island is Your Oyster

Family owned and operated, at Kona Fat Bikes we’re open 6 days a week and ready to provide you with eBikes to help you have the time of your life! There is a lot to do in Kona, and with our eBikes you can take advantage and visit places like Hualalai coffee country where the world-famous coffee beans are grown. 

If coffee isn't your thing, there’s also an active volcano in the area, or you could simply head up north and go swimming with Tiger Sharks in Honokohau Harbor or see the Sea Turtles in Alulu Beach harbor.

The island is your oyster with a Kona Fat Bikes eBike and if you’re worried about running out of a charge, then don’t be – We have approved chargers so that you can plug in your eBike in the evening and it will be charged and ready for the next day’s adventure.

Now that you know a little about the many perks of eBikes, there is one caveat that we should mention: Once you’ve gotten used to getting around on an eBike, you’re going to want to do it all the time!

We hope you’ve enjoyed our little eBike exploration and the next time you’re in Kona, we look forward to showing you the district in a brand-new way – The eBike way with Kona Fat Bikes!
