JAN 16th Poker Ride & Post Ride Celebration Brunch at Aloha Beer

Registration closes when we reach 250 riders. Register now!

Why you should ride in the Poker Ride; 1) We’re not able to have our annual dinner this year, so this is how you can support HBL’s advocacy work to make our community a better place to bike. 2) You’ve never done one before. 3) You’ll get 1 ticket for a $150 cash drawing at the post-ride celebration brunch. 4) You can share a great time with your pals at the post ride party at Aloha Beer. HBL has a fun time planned for you! 5) Your New Year's resolution included more exercise (right?), so here you go!

What the heck is a Poker Ride? Riders stop at 5 checkpoints and draw a card. Last checkpoint is at Aloha Beer where the final card is drawn. Winners will be announced during our celebration, along with more door prizes. Finish your ride and get brunch at 10% off, thanks to Aloha Beer. The best hand wins $100 The Bike Shop gift card and the worst hand wins a $50 The Bike Shop gift card. Find more info at HBL.org/Poker, or Register Now!

HBL Gets (Free!) Helmets on Heads for the Holiday Spirit!

To celebrate the season of giving and to continue our work in helping bicycle riders pedal around town safely, on December 1st HBL gave out a total of 138 helmets to individuals in need (toddlers to adults). The red, silver, yellow, and blue shiny new helmets, sized for toddler to Adult XXL, were graciously donated to HBL by DOH, Neurotrauma Supports.
With help from Bikeshare Hawaii’s Biki Ambassadors, HBL staff & volunteers took the time to help fit each individual’s brand new helmet to their head, gave helpful pointers on how to prolong the life of their helmet, as well as shared tips on safe cycling habits to keep everyone riding joyfully!


Boost your confidence, learn new skills, and build your bike clout with HBL.

HBL Board and Staff met in December at the HBL office to review results and plans and to confirm Board Officers.

Please Welcome Your 2022 HBL Board!

Guiding your Hawaii Bicycling League towards its mission, and providing leadership to the organization, is your HBL Board of Directors. The Board is comprised of 15 members who serve on a voluntary basis and devote hours representing you and broadening our influence and perspective.

In November, we emailed a ballot to all members to elect the 2022 HBL Board. When votes were tallied, all nominees received at least 90% support.

Therefore, we are thrilled to welcome two new members to the HBL Board: Ina Chang and Pili Valderrama. And we’re very pleased to welcome back thirteen continuing Board members.

Announcing the 2022 Hawaii Bicycling League Executive Committee of the Board:

President: Bob Bengtson
Vice President: Patricia Johnson
Treasurer: Norb Buelsing
Secretary: Pattie Dunn
Immediate Past President: Josh Powell

And your 2022 Board Members:
