Hawaiʻi Bicycling League
By: Travis Counsell, Executive Director
Hawaiʻi Bicycling League was founded in 1975 and has a mission of enabling more people to ride bicycles. We do so with three primary focuses: Advocacy, Education, and Events.
Our advocacy efforts lead to improved infrastructure and safer streets for all users. We’ve helped pass safety focused bills like the 3ft passing law, as well as provided input on bike and pedestrian master plans. We work with community leaders, as well as at the state and federal levels to ensure bikes are part of the conversation in health, recreation, and transportation efforts.
Our education efforts span from keiki to kūpuna. Our BikeEd Hawaii program has taught bike safety to over 100,000 Oʻahu fourth graders! We also offer adult learn to ride and basic bike skills courses, as well as senior trike rides. We provide bicycle education to over 9,000 people each year.
Our events include large events like the Honolulu Century Ride, which is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year, and is designed to be the best day to #ridealoha, as well as small events like Bike Month activities that encourage people to ride bicycles to school, work, the beach, and more!
We are a member based organization. Our members organize weekly group rides, receive deals at local businesses, and help support our efforts to create a bicycle friendly Hawaiʻi!
