The Hawaii sustainable transportation forum provides stakeholders of various transportation sectors discussion opportunities to ensure that environment, social, and economic considerations are factored into decisions affecting transportation activities that can be sustained into the indefinite future without causing irreparable harm to future generations of Hawaii. We attended Sustainable Transportation Forum on 12/7/2016 on Wailuku Maui.

The Hawaii Department of Transportation, Maui County; Department of Public Works, Department of Planning, Department of Transportation, Maui Metropolitan Planning Organization, and other interested attendees made the Sustainable Transportation Forum on Maui a productive meeting.

Link to past sustainable Transportation Forum Meetings  and December 7, 2016 notes:

Happy holidays and best wishes for prosperous 2017!

Mahalo for your efforts in helping to create a Bicycle-Friendly community on Maui.

A bike can make a difference

250 children from Maui received bicycles and helmets for Christmas from Jim Falk’s Valley Isle Motors in Kahului Wednesday afternoon. This is the sixth year that owner Jim Falk has sponsored the bike giveaway as a way of sharing the joy he felt receiving a bike for Christmas when he was a child.

Maui Bicycling League would like to thank MBL members and supporters for their participation.

Maui Bicycling League couldn’t accomplish what it does without volunteers like you. Mahalo nui loa for your contribution!

Happy Holidays!

Reminder! “Bike Your Park” Day on 9/24 

mauitropicalplantationjpg

Aloha MBL members and supporters,

Our group ride planned for Saturday September 24 is still on, and we are hoping youʻll join us!  Note: Due to last weekʻs flooding, in which Iao Valley took the brunt of the storm, weʻll be changing the longer route (details below).

We will meet at the East side of Maalaea Harbor Shops Parking Lot, closest to Carl’s Jr.  Please arrive no later than 7:45 AM, as the rides start promptly at 8:00 AM.

Ride leaders from the Maui Bicycling League will do a brief ride orientation prior to departure and will lead and trail each group. These are no-drop rides where no one is left behind.

All riders must wear a properly fitting helmet, bring drinking water, and no earbuds are allowed. All rides will be on the road shoulder (varying widths) alongside normal road traffic. Not recommended for children under 16. Please wear bright clothing and use a tail light if you have one.

All rides will depart from Maalaea Parking at 8:00am, but ride groups will be back at the vehicles at different times. Public restrooms are available at Maalaea and Maui Tropical Plantation.

1) Beginner/intermediate: Ride from Maalaea to Maui Tropical Plantation and back. This ride is eight miles round-trip, at a fairly leisurely pace, with a slightly gradual climb. There may be some headwind as we start and/or tailwind returning. (Learning to ride with wind is a good skill to develop on Maui!) We will stop at the Tropical Plantation to stretch, hydrate, and snack before the ride back.

2) Upper intermediate: Ride at a moderate pace and enjoy the scenery, approximately 10-12 mph average speed. We will ride to Wailuku town, take a break to hydrate, then continue on a gradual, steady climb up Main Street. Iao Valley Road is closed indefinitely, so we will bear left onto Alu Road, go up the hill and turn left on Kuikahi Drive back down to High Street. This Intermediate level ride is approx. 18 miles round-trip. We will break at the top of the hill to enjoy the vistas, stretch and hydrate, before the nice downhill ride back.

For more information, email Sookie Kunst, MBL Education and Safety Co-chair at sookie@mykarmayoga.com.

All organized rides are free for MBL members. Non-members and visitors are invited to join the ride but are asked to consider joining MBL or making a small donation to help fund the organization’s efforts for more bicycle pathways and bike lanes on Maui. Please click here to join MBL and show your support https://www.hbl.org/join/

MBL rides are a fun way to ride safely in a group, meet other cyclists and learn paths around the island. Look for additional info and weather related updates at www.mauibicyclingleague.org. #BikeYourPark #FindYourPark#AdventureCycling

Bike Your Park With Us!

iaoneedleAloha MBL members and supporters,

Join us for the first ever national Bike Your Park Day on September 24, 2016! Bring your friends and family and help them discover the bicycling opportunities in our backyard.

Maui Bicycling League (MBL) will be leading group bicycle rides for upper intermediate and beginner/intermediate riders in Central Maui to Iao Valley State Park and Maui Tropical Plantation on Saturday, September 24, 2016, starting at 8am.

We will meet at the East side of Maalaea Harbor Shops Parking Lot, closest to Carl’s Jr.

Please arrive no later than 7:45 AM, as the rides start promptly at 8:00 AM. Ride leaders from the Maui Bicycling League will do a brief ride orientation prior to departure and will lead and trail each group. These are no-drop rides where no one is left behind.

All riders must wear a properly fitting helmet, bring drinking water, and no ear buds are allowed. All rides will be on the road shoulder (varying widths) alongside normal road traffic. Not recommended for children under 16. Please wear bright clothing and use a tail light if you have one.

All rides will depart from Maalaea Parking at 8:00am, but ride groups should expect to be back at the vehicles at different times. Public restrooms are available at Maalaea and at both destinations.

1) Beginner/intermediate: Ride from Maalaea to Maui Tropical Plantation and back. This ride is eight miles round-trip, at a fairly leisurely pace, with a slightly gradual climb. There may be some headwind as we start and/or tailwind returning but it is not usually too strong in the morning. We will break at the Tropical Plantation to stretch, hydrate, and snack before the ride back.

2) Upper intermediate: Ride at a moderate pace and enjoy the scenery, approximately 10-12 mph average speed. We leave from Maalaea Parking and ride to Wailuku town, take a break and continue on a gradual, then steady climb up to Iao Valley State Park. This Intermediate level ride is approx. 18 miles round-trip. We will break at Iao Valley to stretch, hydrate, snack and enjoy the park for a bit before the nice downhill ride back.

Saturday, Aug 6th–Join one of three Upcountry group rides!

Aloha MBL members and supporters,

kula viewThe Maui Bicycling League (MBL) will be leading three upcountry group rides for bicyclists on Saturday, August 6th, 2016, all starting at 8am.  The rides will vary from advanced beginner to experienced.

We will meet at Rice Park on Kula Highway, 5.8 miles South of Pukalani Longs Drugs, and park alongside Kula Highway (37).

Please arrive no later than 7:45am, as the rides start promptly at 8:00am. Ride leaders from the Maui Bicycling League will do a brief ride orientation prior to departure and will lead and trail each group. These are no-drop rides meaning no one is left behind.

All riders must wear a properly fitting helmet, bring drinking water, and no ear buds are allowed. All rides will be on the road shoulder (varying widths) and with motor vehicles. Not recommended for children under 16. Please wear bright clothing and use a tail light if you have one.

All three rides will depart from Rice Park at 8:00am, but when each ride returns is hard to tell, as it depends on pace and length of break. Riders should expect to be back at the vehicles at different times.

1) Cruise: Ride from Rice Park to Grandma’s Coffee House and back, with a break at Grandma’s. This is an Advanced Beginner level ride of six miles round-trip, at a fairly leisurely pace. Rolling hills.

2) Holoholo: Ride at a relaxed pace and enjoy the scenery. We leave from Rice Park and ride to the end of Thompson Rd, take a swing up to Kula Hospital, stop at Grandma’s for a break, then back to Rice Park. This Intermediate level ride is approx. 10 miles round-trip, with more rolling hills.

3) Get’em Brah!: Riders depart from Rice Park and ride to Ulupalakua Ranch Store and back. This is a moderately intense ride for Upper Intermediate, experienced riders. The section of road South of Keokea has no shoulder, but not much traffic either. The road drops about 1,200 ft. to Ulupalakua, so there is a climb on the trip back. Total ride distance is approx. 18 miles.

For more information, call Kim Round, MBL Education and Safety Co-chair, at 970.749.5873.
