Updated: June 10 Women’s Pau Hana Bike Ride and Social Event


The popularity of bicycling among women is rising nationwide, according to the League of American bicyclists.  Letʻs grow that trend by supporting women cyclists on Maui! Whether you are a guy or gal, bring a girlfriend on June 10, 2016 and let’s ride and have fun together as the sun is setting.

For a fun, scenic group ride, meet at the Polo Beach parking lot with your bike at 4:30pm on Friday, June 10th.  You must wear a helmet and bring your own drinking water.  Weʻll ride towards Makena Beach and Golf Resort, then cycle back for a fun gathering at Mulliganʻs on the Blue just up the street.
If you don’t have a bike yet or don’t get off work until later but want to meet other cyclists and see what this group is about, come join us for drinks, food and music around 6:15pm. A large table is reserved under Sookie Kunst.
Locations [Updated!]:
For the ride, meet at the Polo Beach parking lot. Driving South on Wailea Alanui Drive, turn right on Kaukahi Road at the South end of Fairmont Kea Lani Resort, the last of the Wailea resorts. Turn right into Polo Beach parking lot at end of the road.
For the social gathering after the ride, meet at Mulligan’s on the Blue, 100 Kaukahi Street, Wailea, Maui, HI 96753 (

Details of the ride: Meet at the Polo Beach parking lot with your bike by 4:30pm. After registration and preparation, the group will begin the ride promptly at 5:00pm. We will ride together with group ride leaders in front, back and floating in between to ensure all riders are safe and included. This is a social ride appropriate for all levels from beginner to intermediate. There will be a review of basic hand signals and the ABC Quick Check (for safety) before we ride. Group rides are great way to learn new skills, ride safely, and have a great time with fellow cyclists.
We will ride approximately 6.5 miles over rolling hills on side streets and Makena Road to Makena Beach and Golf Resort and back to Polo Beach parking lot before heading up to Mulligan’s where we have a big table reserved for socializing, drinks, pupus and music. Please join us and let’s get Maui Women on a roll!
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 making a small donation to help fund the organization’s efforts for more bicycle pathways and bike lanes on Maui.
