Reconstruct the Bike Path at Sunset BeachRead or Edit the Petition
The Sunset Beach Bike Path, or The Ke Ala Pupukea Path, was created by the City and County of Honolulu under the Harris Administration in 1994, and landscaped primarily by The North Shore Outdoor Circle (NSOC) volunteers. These same NSOC volunteers, along with residents, maintained and cared for the small trees and shrubs along the bike path. Eight years ago, the City and County took over the care for the path. This resulted in virtually no care or maintenance. It is important to note that the bike path was never built to code in the first place.
It is the only route between the beach roads and Kamehameha Highway for our children to pedal back and forth from Sunset Beach Elementary, the skate park, the rec center, and tennis courts at Shark’s Cove as well as all of the surf breaks in our neighborhood.
Seniors, dog walkers, moms with strollers, and bike riders use the bike path daily. Tourists and locals from other parts of Oahu use the path as well.
