Get golfers to go “green” by helping at HBL’s Bike Valet!

Bike Valet with HBL at the 2024 Sony Open - Volunteers Wanted!

What do flat tubes & golf have in common?
. . . They both get hole-in-ones! XD

Bad jokes aside, we are looking for volunteers to help bike valet with us at the 2024 Sony Open in Hawai‘i, happening Jan. 11 (Thu) through Jan. 14 (Sun) in the Kahala area. Not only does this volunteer opportunity come with good karma for helping their event be more sustainable, but every person that volunteers at bike valet gets a ticket to the Sony Open, where you'll be able to watch 144 of the world's greatest golfers putt it out at the Wai‘alae Country Club!

Find out more info & sign up to help here.

A Hui Hou to Lauren

We’d like to extend a huge mahalo to Lauren, our Director of Community Engagement, who will be departing from HBL in mid-December. Whether you received a membership packet, helped volunteer at one of our events or just swung by the office, you likely crossed paths with Lauren. She has been an excellent member of the team and we’re sad to see her go. Mahalo for your energy and dedication. Best of luck on your next chapter!

Maui Bicycling League

The Lāhainā fire tragedy has emphasized the critical importance of the West Maui Greenway project for our community's safety and sustainability. We must act now to make this project a reality, ensuring that we have a secure evacuation route and a pathway to a greener, more connected West Maui. Please show your support by signing a petition asking our officials to prioritize the implementation of this important project.
