Kokee Fun Ride on the Contour Road

About fifty riders gathered at the picnic area between mile markers 12 and 13 on the Kokee Road for Fun Bike Kokee. We started by dividing into four rider groups: advanced riders, two medium groups, and the relaxed group. Riders started down from the crest of Polihale Ridge Road, dropped about 200 feet of elevation in a mile, and reached the Contour Road.

Following are the riders' comments and a few pictures.
