Hi Donnie,
Awesome event and I look forward to doing it again next year. Thank you for making this seem like a simple event but I’m sure it was no small task to accomplish.
Aloha,

Hi Donnie,
I’ve been wanting to race CTTS ever since learning about it years ago. I finally had the opportunity to make the 6000 mile trip from Boston this year. It was a fabulous event, worth every mile. Organization and support was fantastic. Kudos to you, the CTTS ride support team, and my fellow racers for making this such a memorable time. I’m already making plans for next year!
Cheers,
Mark Coleman, Arlington, MA

Aloha Donnie!
Thank you and your crew of employees and volunteers for another well run race to the top of Haleakala! Although my personal performance changed from last year, what didn’t change was your sincere delight in seeing that I made it to the top. Your big congratulatory hug just made my day!
Mahalo Donnie!

Hi Donnie,
Thank you to you and your team for such an enjoyable event! It was my first time participating in the Maui CTTS, and it certainly won’t be my last! After living abroad for several years, I had long circled this date as a must-do event upon my return to the states.
From communication and organization to race logistics, me and my family had a good grasp on how it would work so that they, too, could be a part of it. We appreciate how much time and effort would have been spent in order for participants like us to enjoy the CTTS easily.
The after party was a hit, too, with the live band being a great addition to the fellowship with other riders as we chatted up our suffering and puffed out our chests. Maui brewing Co. was another solid addition and I enjoyed trying their different brews in keeping with a distinctly locally-flavored event.
May your future events only grow and gain as it would be very deserving of increased exposure!
Cheers,
Will Mather, Tradewind Cycling Team / Bangladesh Squash & Athletic Development

Aloha Donnie,
Thanks again for an amazing race you and your volunteers put on last weekend! Definitely a “must do” event for any cycling enthusiast – I can’t imagine too many races in the world quite like it!

Hi Donnie:
I wanted to thank you, your staff and your volunteers for the huge amount of time it took to coordinate the Race, support the riders and clean up afterwards. My friends from Tradewind Cycling and Cambio-Core were first timers like me so I decided to tag along. More guts than brains as my mother would say. Well now that it’s over, I’m glad I did it.
A big thank you to Nathan for helping my friend fit his rental bike. And a special thank you to Rob for his kind words of encouragement for this newbie and support along the course. And to Martin for making sure us slow guys in the back were safe and for blasting his great country and Neil Diamond music to make me smile. These two guys magically pulled me up that hill with their caring especially at the end when I wanted to give up.
And last, I don’t know who to thank because I wasn’t expecting to see my name or my time posted since I came in well after the cutoff and wasn’t wearing my number anymore. I just heard a woman’s voice calling out for my number as I passed through the gate at the bottom of the parking lot. So, please – please thank her for me for caring. My friends all congratulated me as my finish was in print and “official.” You even gave me special recognition on your website as the last female finisher. How cool is that!
I hope your son is doing well at Baldwin H.S. and tell him from one Baldwin grad to another, that I think his dad is super and runs a super bike shop because he cares about the people that pass through it and it shows.

Mahalo Donnie!
I’ll be proudly pedaling around Oahu in my 2012 Cycle to the Sun jersey. I’ll be smiling and thinking about you and the boys and the great experience we all shared.
SincerelyLynn Wong
