We always have new campaigns and need people like you to help!
Those new bike lanes and the 3-Foot Passing Law didn’t just happen, and they wouldn’t have happened without Advocates like you. Consideration for cyclists isn’t a high priority for most folks on O’ahu, with most everything being about cars. With 365 days of good weather, limited space, a need to improve health, and to provide equitable transportation; biking more and driving less makes tons of sense. Changes need to be made to encourage and enable that. Advocates push for that.

Support New Bike Lanes on S King, Punchbowl and Richards
The densification of Downtown will require a sustainable transportation network within, including transportation alternatives for those who can’t or don’t wish to use a car for all their daily trips. With this transformation, Honolulu can realize the social, economic, and environmental benefits of becoming a more bike-friendly city.
PETITION TO RECONSTRUCT & MAINTAIN BIKE PATHS/LANES
Maintenance of bike lanes and paths is extremely lacking on Oahu, to the point where some are too dangerous to bike and walk on. HBL members often say they are in such disrepair that they are unusable. The asphalt is cracked, there are potholes, roots pushing up, trash all over, lack of good lighting, etc. People report falling and getting injured. It is a liability to the city.
PETITION TO RECONSTRUCT THE BIKE PATH AT SUNSET BEACH
The bike path, known as Ke Ala Pupukea, was built nearly 30 years ago, and extends 3.5 miles through Sunset Beach. Due to aging, salt and sun damage, wear and tear, and tree roots pushing up the asphalt, the time has come to reconstruct this well-utilized path. It is dangerous.
Nimitz bike path repaving
Thanks to your efforts sending emails about the need for the south end of the Nimitz Bike Path to be repaved, HDOT is expected to start paving at the end of 2022! We will add updates here when we learn more. You can still send messages to further this project, and about other maintenance projects, click below.
THE BIKE PATH AT SUNSET BEACH Partially funded!
HBL worked with advocates on the North Shore to raise awareness about the need to repave the path. This resulted in $300,000 going into the city budget for planning and design from Councilwoman, Heidi Tsuneuoshi. The mayor added $200,00 for planning and design. The money was put in the budget and approved. The city expects to hire a design consultant by December 2022. To ensure the path gets built in a timely manner we need to keep advocating.
