We advocate for bicycle-friendly, safer street changes, including laws to protect people on bikes and other vulnerable road users, more bikeways and Complete Streets, as well as the policies and funding to make Hawaii a bicycle paradise.

We host events both big and small to get people bicycling and bring together a community around the love of cycling.
This wouldn’t be possible without the support of our members, riders, contributors, and volunteers.

Frequently Asked Questions (???????)
Is the Century a Ride or a Race? The Honolulu Century Ride is an untimed ride in which riders roll at their own pace. There are no official finishing places or times, a style called Audax in Europe. This gives riders new to Hawaii plenty of freedom to enjoy the sights along the way. The front pack in the ride, however, has some great cyclists riding at near-professional pace. Due to limited road and turn around options, the longest course is around 96 miles long.
Aid Stations 25, 50, 75, and 100 mile distance turnaround options are at Sandy Beach Park, Kailua Intermediate School, KEY Project (Kahaluu) and Swanzy Beach (Kaaawa).
Bike Rentals Many local bike shops offer bike rentals. Call early and reserve! The Bike Shop Honolulu offers Specialized road, mountain, and commuter style bikes. Island Triathlon and Bikes offers a variety of road bikes. Also check out SpinLister for more options.
Course Information Most of the course is flat with a prevailing east or north-east wind that usually is blowing at 5-15 miles per hour by afternoon. These winds can be more of a challenge than the hills. There are two course closure times: To ride 75 miles, you must pass Kailua by 11am. To ride 100 miles, you must pass KEY Project by 10:30am. If you arrive after these times you will be asked to turn back to the finish line for your safety. Keep in mind that the event starts at 6:15am.
Friendship Ride Leaders Lead a group of riders on whatever distance you were originally planning to ride. We’ll provide you with a Friendship Ride Leader bib, which let’s other riders know you’ve formed a group and can provide directions and help with minor mechanical adjustments, or call course support to help. Download the Friendship Ride Leaders form to sign-up and help out.
Is Your Bike Ready? If you’re not positive that you 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.
