Ride of Silence on May 21 @ 9 AM — Join Us!

The Maui Bicycle League will be holding a group ride called “The Ride of Silence” on May 21st, 2016.  In the month of May, cyclists nationwide will take to the roads in a silent procession to honor cyclists who have been killed or injured while cycling on public roadways.  Although cyclists have a legal right to share the road with motorists, the motoring public often isn’t aware of these rights, and sometimes not aware of the cyclists themselves.IMG_0027

When: Saturday, May 21, 2016 at 9:00 am. Please arrive early as the ride will begin promptly at 9:00 am.

We are also seeking donations of food and water for the bicyclists. Volunteers are also sought to help at the refreshment station.

For more information, to volunteer and to sign up, please email maui@hbl.org.

We hope to see you there to help raise awareness about the need to protect bicyclists on Maui.

MBL rides provide an enjoyable way to ride safely in a group, meet other cyclists, and learn paths around the island. Look for additional updates at www.mauibicyclingleague.org.
