Ride Options:

Option 1: Neal Blaisdell Park to Hawaiian Railway Society

  • 8 mile (16 mile round trip) ride along the Pearl Harbor Bike Path and portions of the future Leeward Bikeway. We’ll avoid the dirt sections if muddy! There will be some off-road areas, so skinny tires are not recommended. 

Option 2: Kapapapuhi Point Park (AKA West Loch Community Shoreline Park) to Hawaiian Railway Society

  • 3 mile (6 mile round trip) ride along the park paths, path of the future Leeward Bikeway, then along Renton Road to the train yard. While paved for the majority of the ride, it is rough in some areas. 

Option 3: Meet at the Hawaiian Railway Society

  • Plan your own ride or park at the train yard. Be there by 10:40am as the train departs at 11:00am sharp!

This is an organized group ride, with a private train ride and lunch. While most of the route is on bike paths, some riding on the road is necessary. Roads will not be closed to traffic; we will ride as a group and follow all traffic laws. This is a family friendly ride. No need to worry about a lock! HBL will watch the bicycles while you are on the train.

Please choose your starting option with your riding ability in mind. While this is a casual ride, 18 miles is a long distance if you are not prepared. Fret not, that’s why we have a short 6 mile option from Kapapapuhi Point Park, plus an option to meet us there. If you have additional questions, please email
