ADVOCATES NEEDED

Those new bike lanes and the 3-Foot Passing Law didn’t just happen.  And they wouldn’t have happened without Advocates like you joining the fight. Consideration for people to bike simply isn’t a high priority for most folks here, with most everything being about cars. With 365 days of good weather, limited space, a need to improve health, to provide equitable transportation, and to care about sustainability, biking more and driving less makes tons of sense. Changes need to be made to encourage and enable that. But change is hard. Advocates push for change anyway.

WHAT'S HAPPENING NOW?

Volunteers needed for the 2022 Hale‘iwa Metric Century!

The Hale‘iwa Metric Century is a wonderful community event, and also a fundraiser that helps fuel HBL’s work in advocacy & education all across the island. After not being able to hold this ride on the ride on the gorgeous North Shore for the past 3 years we are SO excited to have it happen IN-PERSON on April 24, 2022… But we need your help! Click here for brief descriptions of the different volunteer tasks & other helpful info (like location, volunteer shift times, and more!) 

KE’EAUMOKU COMPLETE STREETS

Honolulu’s busy Ke’eaumoku Street was originally designed to optimize motor vehicle traffic flow.  The City has now identified it as a “Complete Street” project to implement a new street design that balances the needs of those who walk, bike, use a wheelchair, ride transit or use a car.  Learn more and weigh in here.

CURRENT INITIATIVES

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.

HAWAI’I BIKE PLAN

The State of Hawaii Department of Transportation’s Bike Plan Hawaii website is a resource for current information on projects underway, plans in development, community outreach information, and much more. 

O’AHU BIKE PLAN

Created by the City, this identifies specific projects, policies, and programs to continue to grow ridership by providing a network of safe, low-stress bikeways on the island of O‘ahu.

COMPLETE STREETS

Complete Streets are streets that work for everyone, safely moving people while balancing the needs of all roadway users, such as pedestrians, bicyclists, transit riders, and motorists. Complete streets are safe, convenient, and accessible for all, regardless of how one gets around, age, or ability.
