Zach’s Scavenger Hunt in Paradise is open to riders of all ages and sends cyclists out on a cycling scavenger hunt where they’ll collect checkpoints in the hunt to rack up the most points to win awesome prizes! There is no set route as this is designed so that you make your own adventure, but entrants can expect to ride as short as 2-miles or as long as 30 miles.
Start: Kaka‘ako Makai Gateway Park (corner of Cooke St. & Ilalo St.).
Parking available at Kaka‘ako Waterfront Park.
Finish: Hawai‘i State Capitol (by the Queen Lili‘okulani statue, between the Capitol and ‘Iolani Palace)

Rider check-in opens at 8:15am at Kaka‘ako Makai Gateway Park. All riders must be checked in by 8:45am.
Ride rules will be covered and each entrant will get a Rider Manifest that contains a list of all the checkpoints, where they are, and how many points each is attributed. Awards will be presented to the three individuals with the most points collected.
THIS IS NOT A RACE – ALL RIDERS MUST WEAR HELMETS.
Route Information: There is no set ride route and roads will be open to all traffic. Riders must follow the C&C of Honolulu rules, obeying all traffic signals and signs. If a rider is observed violating any laws they will be DQed immediately.
Prize Rules: To be eligible for prizes and awards, entrants must turn in their Manifest no later than 11:55 am (HST) Saturday, July 16, 2022. Winners will be announced at the Hawai‘i State Capitol around 12:40pm.
Raffle: Riders that submit their Manifest by 11:55am with at least five (5) checkpoints obtained will be entered into a random drawing raffle. Raffle winners announced at 12:45pm.
Example Manifest checkpoints:
❏ Find a gold coin next to the bike rack at Victoria Ward Park.

Mahalo for making Bike Month extra special this year!
All bicycles (with operable pedals) that can be ridden safely by it’s operator are allowed for this event. Road bikes, tandems, fixies, recumbents, mountain bikes, Biki bikes, pedal-assist bikes… All good!
Those that will be using a pedal-assist e-bike for this event will register under the E-Bike division.
Since Hawai‘i State law requires those operating electric bicycles (“pedal-assist low speed bicycles”) to be 15 years of age or older if it is registered to a household member, we will not allow those under 15 years old to participate on e-bikes.
As short as 2-miles. As long as you want.
Your best judgement! Bring a map, or your smart phone, or team up with a buddy!
No, you don’t! Be strategic about collecting your points. Want to ride far for more points or cruise around and collect a bunch small points? Ride within your limits.
Yep! You can turn your Manifest in as early as 11:00am at the State Capitol.
Then you aren’t able to win. We won’t be accepting any Manifests if you miss the cutoff at 11:55am. But you can still enjoy the food and award ceremony!
The winner is determined by the person with the highest amount of correct points collected, not by speed. This is not timed, and NOT a race.
No, please bring your own flat repair stuff.
