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. In many situations the shoulder has sand or gravel, please signal to the riders/drivers behind and merge into the travel lane. Hawaii HRS291C-145 allows a cyclist to control the whole lane when it’s too narrow for a car/bike to share the lane as well as to avoid hazards.
