Come join the fun on Saturday, November 7 “Car free” bike ride on Hansen Road

We all had such a great time on the “bikes only” ride that was organized by Maui Bicycling League on the new Airport Access Road on August 4.

We have another opportunity “car free” bike ride on Hansen Road on Saturday, November 7. This special event for cyclists and pedestrians is organized by the County of Maui and takes place prior to Hansen Road’s re-opening to vehicular traffic.

Come join the fun on this newly renovated 2-mile long Hansen Road with its brand new bike lanes! The road will be open only to bicyclists, walkers and runners. It’s a special once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

Arrive by 8:30 a.m. and meet next to the Hawaiian Commercial & Sugar Co. administrative offices along Hansen Road. 

The ride will begin at 9 a.m. after a bike safety briefing by the Maui Police Department Kihei Bicycle Patrol.

Bicyclists under age 16 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian; all riders must wear a helmet. If you’re so inspired, you’re invited to wear a Halloween costume. For safety’s sake, just be sure that it does not interfere with vision, the wearing of helmets or bicycle operation.

Please note that we’ll all need to off Hansen Road by 10:45 a.m.

Some parking will be available at the HC&S administrative offices parking lot and at the Kahului Target parking lot. Be sure to park in the spaces farthest from the store. If you park in the Target parking lot, use the bike path on Mokulele Highway to get to Hansen Road.
