The Leeward Bikeway
The Leeward Bikeway project has been in the works for almost 40 years! This year, with generous member donations, HBL decided it has been too long! We have been working hard to get the word out, policy implemented and the multi-use path built! Around 23 miles long, the Leeward Bikeway will be the longest bike path on Oahu. Join us on this ride to see the (not yet paved) future route and to tour Native Hawaiian Cultural and historical Kalaeloa Heritage Park.

More about Kalaeloa Heritage Park…
“The Kalaeloa Heritage and Legacy Foundation (KHLF), a 501 (c) 3 Native Hawaiian organization formed by members of ‘Ahahui Siwila Hawaii O Kapolei (ASHOK) and dedicated residents of the Honouliuli ahupua‘a (land district) for the purpose of preserving and protecting Native Hawaiian Cultural and historical sites of Kalaeloa by creating a heritage park. Since 1998 ASHOK has worked with the Navy, Barbers Point Redevelopment Commission, and then with Hawaii Community Development Authority (HCDA) to preserve these sites and minimize damages. In December of 2010 members of ASHOK’s Kalaeloa committee came to the realization that these sites needed the exclusive dedication of an organization to preserve these sites and create a heritage park. The committee and ASHOK stepped aside so such an organization could be created. A conceptual plan for the park was drafted in 2014 and the foundation was given a 40 year lease to the park property in December of 2015. KHLF’s mission for the Heritage Park is the stewardship and preservation of these Native Hawaiian cultural sites and the cultural landscape of Kalaeloa, to educate the community on cultural traditions and practices, advocate cultural awareness, implement and maintain an authentic Hawaiian presence in the Kalaeloa area.” Learn more about Kalaeloa Heritage Park at www.khlfoundation.org/about
