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:

Our next Sustainable Transportation Forum will be held on Oahu in Spring 2017 (TBD).

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
