Bike Valet with HBL at the 2024 Sony Open

What do flat tubes & golf have in common? . . . They both get hole-in-ones! XD

Bad jokes aside, we are looking for volunteers to help bike valet with us at the 2024 Sony Open in Hawai‘i, happening Jan. 11 (Thu) through Jan. 14 (Sun) in the Kahala area. Not only does this volunteer opportunity come with good karma for helping their event be more sustainable, but every person that volunteers at bike valet gets a ticket to the Sony Open, where you’ll be able to watch 144 of the world’s greatest golfers putt it out at the Wai‘alae Country Club!
