More on the Haleiwa Metric Century…

This is a great ride, a beautiful ride. There are hundreds of bicyclists doing this ride. This puts a lot of us on the road at the same time. Driver awareness for bicyclists will be higher than normal, due to the sheer numbers of us.

Riding a bike along this same route is not as safe the rest of the year. In fact, it is one of the more dangerous roads – with no bike paths, high numbers of tourist traffic, narrow roads, angry locals who do not want to share the road.

If you want to be a part of changing this, then add your name to the growing list of people who want the City and County of Honolulu to take immediate action and begin improving conditions along the North Shore, for a bicycle friendly route.

Email “Bicycle Mom” aka the-green-one@hawaii.rr.com with your name and title (parent, teacher, engineer, lawyer, etc). Please include whether you are a bicycle commuter, or a recreational rider.

*** Update from “Bicycle Mom” ***

  • 29 Neighborhood Boards supported the bicycle safety resolution
  • Honolulu City Council and OMPO also adopted the resolution
  • The Big Island is currently working on its resolution, and I would like to see Kauai and Maui also adopt resolutions by the end of the year
  • A bill to revise the state traffic code will be introduced at the beginning of the next legislative session.
