Shine the light & help educate riders on safe cycling after sundown!

Volunteers Needed for 11/03 (Fri) Westside Lights Giveaway

Help people pedal out of the shadows and into the light & safety by volunteering at HBL’s Bike Bright safety event in Wai‘anae on Friday, Nov. 3rd! Volunteers will help get lights on the bikes of “invisible” riders & give out free helmets (while supplies last). All volunteers are welcome :) Brighten a bicycle-rider’s life by signing up to help here.

Equipping your bicycle with good bike lights when riding at night is a very bright idea– not only so you can see & navigate around any obstacles, but more importantly so you can be seen by others that you’re sharing the road with! It’s also required by law when biking in Hawai‘i (read the full law here).✦

11/25 (Sat) Keep it Kaimukī Keiki Bike Rodeo +Free Bike Valet All Day!

A bookstore with an adorable reading nook, a shop that focuses on zero waste products, a cat cafe, a cheese boutique, salons for every hair style, and DELICIOUS, family-owned eateries serving up local comfort food to ritzy dinners… That's Kaimukī! Home to a diverse range of unique, locally-owned businesses that give the neighborhood its distinct characteristics... including a small, but mighty bicycle non-profit you may know of ;) Explore these hidden charms & stop by the Keep it Kaimukī event on Saturday, Nov. 25th! Enjoy live music & dance performances, participate in family-friendly activities (including a Keiki Bike Rodeo put on by our BikeEd team), and much more.
HBL be offering free bike valet service all day (from 10am-5pm)– if you’d like to help for a short volunteer shift click here!
