MBL Weekly Rides – Would you like to join?

Aloha MBL members and friends!

We had a GREAT Bike Month in May. Thank you to everyone for supporting our celebration of National Bike Month. We had one question come up at every bike ride we hosted, “When is the MBL going to have a weekly ride?”  We have an answer: We will start our weekly ride calendar in July.


Here’s where we need your input.

Pau Hana Ride Weekday ride- To begin we are going to host one Pau Hana Ride per week. The ride will start at 5:30-5:45 p.m. and end by 7 p.m. We’re still finalizing the details, but it looks like the ride will start and finish at Whole Foods in Kahului. We will divide the ride into Waena (intermediate) riders – average speed of 15mph+ and ‘Akahi Akahi (beginner/casual) riders – average speed of 12mph or less.

What day of the week M, T, W,Th, F  works best for you?

Sprecklesville weekend ride- We are also working on creating a weekend ride. Sprecklesville bike ride – It’s a protected bike path and we start our ride at Kaunoa Senior Center. The path continues alongside Hana Highway then along Stable Road going past the airport and toward Kanaha Beach Park. What is the best day for you (Sat or Sunday)? What is the best time – AM or PM?   Please reply to this email ASAP and let us know your preference. As the weekly ride gains in popularity, we will add more rides.

  1. Hi Folks,
    Good work on the proposed bike way between Olowalu and Napili. I read in the Lahaina News that it may be cut short and finish in Lahaina rather than continue to Napili. My wife, Ana, and I live in Napili and would like to bike more, but there are few good options around here for biking. Please keep your plan to extend the path to Napili. There should be enough money on Maui to make this happen. Complete the dream.
    Thanks for your work,

    • Aloha Steve,

      I am sorry for the miss understanding. Phase one is only to Lahaina. Long term plan is all the way to Napili. We are very passionate about making it happen. But need support from people like you. I hope that we can get the entire proposed green way done in our life time. It is a long process and it is not very easy. We work so hard someday not even time to take a shower. So I encourage you folks to get involved in joining the efforts. Join Maui bicycling League. Reach out to me via email and tel#808-633-8553 ext 100 or my cell 925-765-3592 to learn how to support the effort.
