Bob Kiger graduated in 1970 from Rochester Institute of Technology with a degree in bachelor of science in professional photography. He spent the next twelve years producing and directing TV commercials in Hollywood. In 1982, he left Tinseltown and began his rent-a-bike business in Maui. He quickly realized that the island was not the paradise for bicyclists that one might imagine. He made friends with the local kids in Lahaina who gave him the nickname Cruiser Bob. With that, he began his work to develop the world’s first downhill bike tour. Along the way, he experienced a unique adventure, which is documented in this work.
