With your help, you make our voice louder.
Hawaii Bicycling League (HBL) advocates for your ability to bike conveniently and safely for transportation, recreation or exercise. Bike lanes, Complete Streets, Vision Zero law, education programs, and pedestrian safety – HBL makes our islands a safer and more enjoyable place to ride and walk. With your support we work to make Hawai‘i a place where people who walk, bike and drive share the road in the spirit of aloha.
HBL depends on financial support from community members like you. HBL is your voice. We speak for you–for all of us, on and off the road. Your financial support gives us the resources to speak up and speak out – for the safety of bicyclist.
Your support gives HBL a louder voice:
- Advocacy in Action. HBL brings together hundreds of advocates unifying with a strong voice for a bicycle friendly Hawai‘i and safe streets for all – propelling forward protected bikeways for Pensacola St, Ward Ave, Bishop St, Punchbowl St; Complete Streets for Kailua, Kāne‘ohe, Pearl City, Kalihi; and the passage of Vision Zero law making safe streets the top priority of the Department of Transportation.
- Cycling Education. Each year, HBL teaches thousands of 4th graders to ride a bike safely through a customized Keiki BikeEd Program and hundreds of adults with hands-on free workshops.
- Bikeway Implementation. HBL is building a network! 22.2 new miles of bikeways have been implemented on O‘ahu so far, with the newest bikeways in Waipahu, Waimānalo, Waimalu, Kapolei, McCully, and Downtown. Thanks to concerted advocacy efforts the Ainakoa gap in the Kalaniana‘ole Hwy bike lane has been connected.
- Safe Streets. HBL recently lead two big efforts to make Hawai‘i’s streets safer for everyone. Act 134 committed the State and counties to making safety the top priority and achieving zero traffic fatalities on our streets. Act 131 created the Red Light Safety Camera Committee, a first step towards automated enforcement to save lives at dangerous intersections.
HBL is a 501(c)(3) non-profit and Oahu’s oldest and largest cycling organization. HBL works as the voice of cyclist of all ages and ability – a first-time rider to the seasoned veteran, the commuters, on and off road warriors, for the strongest voice for safety with local and state agencies. With a tax-deductible donation to HBL so your voice of change for safe cycling and walking lives on for generations to come.
