Kahului, HI (Maui) — The Maui Bicycling League (MBL) needs group ride leaders! We are inviting Maui residents with cycling experience who would like to lead group rides to attend a half-day training in April.  The trainings will be conducted by a cycling leader  who is flying in from the mainland to conduct training for Maui and Hawaii Bicycling League.

Preston Tyree is a certified League Cycling Instructor, an author, and a recipient  of the League of American Bicyclists National Education Award. A former marketing executive and university professor, Preston brings unique perspective to the issue of making space for people in urban areas, bicyclist education, and bicyclist behavior.

This FREE half-day training is offered to MBL members meeting the following requirements:

  • Current Maui resident
  • Commitment to lead  three or more rides per year
  • Three or more years of cycling experience
  • Confidence bicycling on roads and working with groups

To become a MBL member, sign up online at https://mauibicyclingleague.org/join/

Training will be offered on Monday, April 11, 1-5pm and again on Tuesday, April 12, 9:30-1:30pm.  There will be both classroom and on-road training. Classroom training will be in the Pacific Whale Foundation Discovery Center Classroom at 300 Ma’alaea Road, Suite 211, Wailuku, HI 96793 (harbor level). 

Capacity is limited. To request a space in this training please email maui@hbl.org and state your full name, MBL membership status, and specify first, second or only preference for April 11th or April 12th date options.

We are very excited to offer this training for ride leaders so we can hold more group rides in the Maui community.  More people riding will help us advocate for a bicycle friendly Maui.
