Ride The Triangle with MBL! (March 19)

5-es-headerThe Maui Bicycling League (MBL) will hold a bike ride for intermediate-level riders on Saturday, March 19th. The ride will start at 9 am at Target on 100 Ho’okele St, Kahului, HI 96732.  Riders should meet at the Target parking lot, on the Northeast side closest to the airport.

The ride will begin with the group leaving from Target. The group will have two ride leaders who will instruct basic hand signals and rider safety and tips. These rides are fun ways to ride safely in a group, meet other cyclists and learn paths around the island. The ride route will be structured as follows:

The Intermediate level riders will ride a”triangle,” starting on the Mokulele Bike Path, heading onto North Kihei Road, then Honoapiilani Highway,  onto Kuihelani Highway, and back to Target, for a total of 19 miles. Riders must be able to maintain speeds of approximately 15 to 17 miles per hour. All riders must wear bicycle helmets and provide their own refreshments.

The ride on March 19th is MBL’s first group ride in 2016. The group plans to host rides regularly for different skill levels. Family bike rides are also being planned for later in the year.

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 make a small donation to help fund the organization’s efforts for more bicycle pathways and bike lanes on Maui.

Please RSVP MBL at maui@hbl.org.
