The JBK Couples Ride is named for John B. Kelley, former HBL Treasurer and President of the Board of Directors, who would lead the group ride from Kapiolani Park to Cha Cha Cha's in Hawaii Kai for brunch. John passed away on May 24, 2006.
John became involved in HBL in the mid 1990's, after being introduced to the sport by his son Rob. John's passion and energy for cycling grew to a desire to support and promote a safer and more enjoyable bicycling environment in Hawaii for anyone, racer or recreational rider.
John served on HBL's Board of Directors in several roles as President, Past President, and most recently, Vice President, where he brought strong business and financial experience as well as leadership skills. John was instrumental in keeping the Hawaii Bicycling League solvent during a period of difficulty. As a Lifetime Member, board director, and donor to the Hawaii Bicycling League, John was invaluable in strengthening HBL's financial position and programmatic initiatives.
Through these many years, John served not only in various Board positions, but also as a volunteer extraordinaire. John committed countless hours to setting up the Honolulu Century Rides and Haleiwa Metric Century Rides, not to mention, numerous advocacy related events like the Mayor's Advisory Committee on Bicycling.
John's greatest gift to HBL was his ability to bring so many people together who had a passion for bicycling and persuade them to join and contribute to the success of the League. When asked how they came to know the organization, many members and friends of HBL, can be counted on to say, "John Kelley asked me if I would help with this thing or that thing." John loved HBL and wanted to see it succeed in its mission. HBL and the bicycling community in Hawaii are indebted to this giant of a man.
