Maui Bicycling League to hold bike rides on Aug. 22 starting in Kahului

bikerideWailuku, HI (Maui), August 17, 2015—The Maui Bicycling League (MBL) will hold a bike ride for beginner and intermediate-level riders on Saturday, Aug. 22. The ride will start at 10 a.m. Riders should meet at the gate at the end of Amala Place near the last entrance to Kanaha Beach Park in Kahului. Parking and restrooms are located at Kanaha Beach Park.

The ride will begin with two groups leaving from gate at the end of Amala Place. Each group will have a ride leader. The ride routes will be structured as follows:

  • Beginner riders will ride along the multi-use pathway behind the airport to Kaunoa Senior Center, and then continue along the bike route to Baby Beach in Spreckelsville. Families are welcome in the beginner group, and ride time will be approximately an hour to an hour and 20 minutes Ride speeds will be 12 miles per hour or less.
  • Intermediate riders will ride in the bicycle lane along Amala Place, turn left on Hobron Avenue (which turns into Kamehameha) and make a left turn on Puunene Avenue Then riders will make a right turn on Kuihelani Highway using the shoulder and bike lane and then make a right turn on the Honoapiilani Highway. Riders will follow Honoapiilani Highway into Wailuku and make a right turn onto Main Street and looping back to Kanaha Beach Park. Ride time will be approximately one hour and 20 minutes. Riders must be able to maintain speeds of 15 to 17 miles per hour.

Riders must wear bicycle helmets and must provide their own refreshments.

The ride on Aug. 22 is the MBL’s first monthly ride. The group plans to host a ride each month based on feedback it receives from participants. This month’s ride will be on a Saturday, but future months might include a Sunday or weeknight ride. The rides will be complimentary for MBL members. Non-members and visitors are also invited to join the ride but are asked to consider joining the MBL or make a small donation to help fund the organization’s efforts for more bicycle access pathways and bike lanes on Maui.
