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.
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. At many shops, no appointment is necessary and the tune-up should take a relatively short amount of time. However, it’s polite to call and ask before showing up with your bike.
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. And while you may feel comfortable at first, as your body adapts, your bike may need readjustment. An improperly fit bike can cause an uncomfortable riding experience or even injury. If your knees hurt, chances are you are riding an improperly adjusted bike. Take your bike in to your local bike store to have it professionally fitted.
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.
Ride registrations are non-refundable and non-transferable. Forfeited Ride registrations are treated as a donation.
