Biki, Honolulu’s bike sharing system, has been launched! It enables people to get around conveniently and easily by using the Biki bikes. HBL, in partnership with Biki, will be holding a series of our “Bicycling Basics” workshops – but the very exciting aspect in this is that participants will get to use the Biki bicycles for the workshop… Free of charge! This is all designed to have you feel safe and comfortable riding around Honolulu’s streets, and to get know Honolulu’s new bike sharing system! More information on Bikeshare Hawaii’s Biki can be found at their site: GoBiki.org.
✦ Biki Bicycling Basics workshops have a participant cap of 14 students. Workshop reservations are on a first come, first served basis – space is limited! Those that sign up after the first 14 will be notified and placed on a waitlist and contacted if there is an opening (at least 24 hours in advance of the workshop).
✦ Biki bicycles are easy to use and can accommodate riders of all sizes. They have built in lights and wider tires to conquer any pothole. Biki Bicycling Basics participants will get to learn about the ins & outs of the Biki system and how to use the Biki bikes.
✦ Helmets are required for the riding portion of this workshop. If you do not have you own please let us know at least 24 hours in advance and we will provide one for you to use for the workshop.
✦ If you do not want to use a Biki bicycle Bikeshare Hawaii is providing for you and would like to bring your own (working!) bicycle to participate in the Biki Bicycling Basics workshop, please kindly email Carlos at Carlos@HBL.org before the workshop.
