We know you want to do the Honolulu Century Ride, and we do too! But, we have to do what’s right for all as we transition out of covid safety measures. We can tell you it will be a fun 1-day event with lots of support, challenges and the opportunity for you to ride 100 miles, or 50 or 25 miles—whatever your goal. Your route can be whatever you choose, including a ride to turn around at Swanzy Beach Park. We’ll be there!. We’ve set registration fees really low and roads will be open. More details to be announced soon, but mark your calendar NOW! 

Registration and ride details will be announced shortly. Look for updates in the HBL Newsletter and email bicycle@hbl.org with any questions.

2021 Honolulu Century Ride has been replaced with a transition 1-day ride event HBL’s Century Challenge to be held on the same day, Sunday, September 26, 2021. Similar to recent HBL transition events, HBL’s Century Challenge is a 1-day ride toward a personal century goal at a location/route of your choice. Riders choose their own route. There will be no official start/finish line, closed course, ride route, police or coned lanes for this ride. There will be HBL Support Stations on O’ahu at select locations once permits are approved. Registration and ride details will be announced shortly.

Although we are hopeful the islands/State of Hawai’i will be open for hosting large outdoor sporting events soon, it is hard to tell if this can/will occur by September 2021 for HBL Honolulu Century Ride.
HBL’s has requested permits for the 2021 Honolulu Century Ride route and accompanying park reservations but to date no permits have been issued – and therefore the event is not yet approved by the City&County of Honolulu and cannot proceed without.
Currently, the island of O’ahu is in Tier 3 which allows for select groupings of 10 and no accommodation for permitted outdoor sporting events of any size. We follow City’s tier movement online at: https://www.oneoahu.org/reopening-strategy The City&County of Honolulu will only issue permits based on what the Tier system allows, with no exception. To date there have been no other permitted large outdoor sporting events.
We are continuing our planning and will open registration as soon as we can confirm our permitting. We are confident officials are reviewing all aspects of our State’s reopening plans and understands the importance for business, social and health of residents and visitors.
If we are able to receive permitting it may come with restrictions, ex., grouping riders, staggered starting times, sending out in heats/waves, as we have seen happen internationally in some sporting events, but only as permitting allows.
We know this is not an exact answer we all hope for but sharing what we know as of today. We will continue to update the site as new information arrives.
Ride Safe & Ride with Aloha
Mahalo for your patience
