Ride with Aloha: Please follow all traffic laws, signs, and signals, plus any requests from the HPD special duty officers on course. Please ride single file (this is law in Hawaii) and to the right of the lane. Please signal to the riders/drivers behind you when merging into the travel lane. Hawaii HRS291C-145 allows a cyclist to control the whole lane when it’s too narrow for a car and a bike to share the lane as well as to avoid hazards. For more info on the laws, please visit our Bike Laws page. Please report aggressive / dangerous drivers to HPD by calling 911.
Pass with Care: When passing a rider, please make sure it is clear to do so, then pass on the left. Be sure to signal visually (for riders and drivers behind) and vocally, “passing on your left” for rider ahead.
Most of the course is flat with a slight climb as you pass Diamond Head lighthouse. This is an out and back course following similar roads each direction and starting and finishing at Kapiolani Park.
After the ride enjoy ‘ono food and lively music in the park. Make sure to check out the HBL merchandise tent and other vendors, while hanging out with new friends and soaking in that great feeling of accomplishment for completing your distance goal.
Smile! Official ride photos will be taken by Project M at different locations along the route. Photos will be available for purchase a week or two after the ride. You’ll receive an email with links to your best shots!
All participants who register during Early and Regular registration periods receive a t-shirt. Late registrants will receive shirts based on available sizes and quantities and can pickup after the ride at the Kapiolani Park finish area.
The Aloha Fun Ride is an untimed ride in which riders roll at their own pace. There are no official finishing places or times. This is a family friendly ride that focuses on fun, not speed!
Directional signage will be placed at turns and intersections.
Course map will be available at packet pickup.
If you’re not positive that your bike is in top shape, take it to your friendly local bike store for a quick tune-up.
Make sure your bike fits you. The biggest problem facing most cyclists is bike fit. Nearly all cyclists need some sort of adjustment to their bikes in order to achieve maximum performance. So take your bike in to your local bike store to have it professionally fitted.
HBL offers FREE Basic Bike Maintenance courses every month, and will be offering a special workshop at packet pickup on Saturday, 9/26 from 12pm-2pm. Learn how to change a flat tire with ease and other basic maintenance skills! Sign up at hbl.org/workshops to attend (all you need to bring is a wheel!).
Electric Assist Bikes are allowed in the Honolulu Century Ride as long as the bike does require pedal force to operate and the rider agrees to ride at safe and controlled speeds and follow all the customary rider courtesy and safety requirements expected of riders using standard non-assisted bikes.
There will be parking available on a first come first serve basis in mauka lots of the Waikiki Shell. The makai lots are reserved for vendors and volunteers with parking passes.
