Come ride with hundreds of other bicyclists during this epic ride along O‘ahu’s beautiful North Shore.

You’ll start at Kaiaka Bay Beach Park, riding across the start line at 7:30am.  You’ll first bike towards Ka‘ena Point with the ocean on your right and Dillingham Airfield on your left.  Take a little break at Camp Erdman where you turn around and bike back towards Hale‘iwa. Then, pedal past famed ocean beaches and surf spots like Sharks Cove, Waimea Bay, Pipeline, and Sunset.  When you reach Hau‘ula Beach State Park, it will be time for you to return along the beautiful coastline, over Hale‘iwa’s iconic Rainbow Bridge, and finish up back where you started!  You’ll find plenty of Aid Stations along your ride to keep you energized and hydrated.  Plus, a marked course, roving mechanics, and course marshals.  You’ll finish proud and exhilarated when you arrive at Kaiaka Bay Beach Park to celebrate your achievement and enjoy camaraderie with your fellow bicyclists.

Most folks don’t bike the North Shore very often, but thousands have joined HBL for this ride over the past 30 years.  Bike the entire 100K route (a Metric Century is 62 miles), or turn around at any of 5 Aid Stations. Ride your ride with HBL and take pride in knowing you’re supporting the Hawaii Bicycling League when you do! 

Registering early not only gets you a cheaper rate and an event shirt, it also helps us plan out the event in advance! #Ride Aloha

 
Plus register by March 10th and receive this dry-fit t-shirt at no extra charge in your registration fee! We do not expect to have extra event t-shirts, but if any remain at the ride finish, they will be available for purchase.

 

To celebrate the double milestone years of the 30th Hale’iwa Metric Century and the 40th Honolulu Century Ride we are offering a joint registration that will be your cheapest option combining HMC & HCR. For joint registration click HERE.

The event is not only a community ride that celebrates cycling as a fun & healthy activity and brings more awareness to bicycling safety, but ultimately is a fundraising event for HBL. Expenses are incurred before the ride takes place. For that reason, no deferrals or refunds will be processed.

Bicyclists age 18 and above must register and accept the ride waiver.
Minors under age 18 must register and have parental consent to the waiver.
Adults with children in carriers or trailers assume all responsibility. These children do not need to register, and will not get a packet nor t-shirt.  But, they will get lots of smiles!

Know your limits and pace yourself.  The entire course is 62 miles (100K) and there is typically a headwind on the way to Hau‘ula.  If you tire, there is no shame in biking a shorter distance than you planned.  If it is determined you will not make the course cut-off time of 2pm, you will be asked to turn around and return to the Start/Finish.  We advise some biking beforehand to get ready.  Join some friends and work up your mileage weekly.  We have a list and a calendar of local group rides and events if you’re looking for opportunities to ride or new riding buddies. You do not need to bike 62 miles all in one day before the ride, but you should build your strength and experience and endurance to fully enjoy the day!

 

Road bikes, mountain bikes, hybrid bikes, cruisers, tandems, pedal-assist e-bikes–all bicycles that can be operated safely can be ridden.  Make sure your bike is in good operating order.
 
Make sure your bike fits you. The biggest problem facing most cyclists is bike fit. Nearly all cyclists need some sort of adjustment to their bikes in order to achieve maximum performance. So, maybe take your bike in to your local bike store to have it professionally fitted.
Kaiaka Bay Beach Park is the Start/Finish location for the 2023 HBL Hale‘iwa Metric Century. We’ll have arranged for there to be plenty of free parking available there at the park. Parking will open at 5:45am. ALL CARS MUST BE OUT OF THE LOT BY 2:30PM (or risk being locked in!). It’s about a one-hour drive from Honolulu. Share a ride with a friend if you can, remember that all TheBuses are equipped with bike racks on the front. and, lastly, we offer a shuttle service from Kaka‘ako Waterfront Park to the start and back for $20.
Ensure you + your bike are RIDE READY before the ride day:
Tires inflated to the correct PSI, chain lubed, no bike parts flying off as you ride. Get a nice meal and good night’s sleep so you are ready to enjoy the ride to the fullest with everyone! Feeling sick? Please STAY HOME and rest up, your bike and friends will still be there & happy to ride with you when you’re feeling better.
 
What to bring on ride day:
    • Functioning Bike
    • Helmet (required)
    • Your Rider Bib number (so you can get access to the Aid Stations!)
    • Water Bottle (or two)
    • Spare Tube / Patch Kit
    • Sun Protection (sunscreen, UV sun sleeves, shades, etc.)
    • Money for lunch at the park or a snack along the ride
    • ID / Medical Card in case of emergency

Other items that might be handy to have include camera, phone, (with plastic bag for protection from possible moisture) and snacks. 

Ride with Aloha: Please follow all traffic laws, signs, and signals, plus any requests from the HPD special duty officers on course. Please ride single file (this is law in Hawai‘i) and to the right of the lane. In many situations the shoulder has sand or gravel. Please signal to the riders/drivers behind you when merging into the travel lane. Hawaii HRS291C-145 allows a cyclist to control the whole lane when it’s too narrow for a car and a bike to share the lane as well as to avoid hazards. For more info on the laws, please visit our Bike Laws page. Please report aggressive / dangerous drivers to HPD by calling 911.

Pass with Care: When passing a rider, please make sure it is clear to do so, then pass on the left. Be sure to signal visually (for riders and drivers behind) and vocally, “passing on your left” for rider ahead.

Bringing your bike to the start line in good working order is really important.  It would be a shame to get there and not be able to ride because your bike isn’t working or is unsafe. Perhaps worse would be experiencing a mechanical issue that causes you to end your ride early. If you’re not positive your bike is in top shape, take it to your friendly local bike store for a quick tune-up.

Mechanical Support:

Local bike stores and partners BIKEFACTORY, Boca Hawaii, Chillaxin’ Hawaii, T. Eki, Inc. (formerly Eki Cyclery), and The Bike Shop, will be volunteering their time to provide mechanical support at the designated Aid Stations. In addition, there will be mechanical support roving along the course for riders in need.

Project M will send out an email to all participants when photos are ready.

There will also be a link here when they are ready, so check back later.
