— Update 12/3/2018 —
We had a great turn-out for the #OptOutside Ride 2018. For many, it was their first time riding up Tantalus. Thank you and congratulations to all who came out and joined us on Black Friday.
Check out some of the great photos from the event here!
Ditch the crowds, save some money, and opt outside!
This Black Friday, millions of people and hundreds of organizations will choose to #OptOutside!
Started by REI three years ago, the outdoor retail giant has closed their doors on Black Friday to promote spending time outside in nature. According to the Outdoor Industry Association, nearly half of all Americans don’t go participate in any outdoor activities even once a year! We at HBL want to help change that! Like REI and the other organizations across America, we too will choose to #OptOutside!
Join us on Black Friday (Nov. 23rd, 2018) for a group ride up Tantalus!
We will lead a group ride going up on the Makiki Heights / Tantalus Dr. side and descending down Round Top Dr. with a quick stop at Pu’u ‘Ualaka’a State Park to enjoy the view, talk story, and take a group photo. Starting at Archie Baker Park, our pace will start off slow up Makiki Heights Dr. until the right turn onto Tantalus Dr. From there, riders may climb at their own pace and reconvene at the parking lot at the very top. We’ll then descend at a safe pace down Round Top Dr. and once again reconvene at the Pu’u Ualaka’a State Park lookout. At Pu’u ‘Ualaka’a State Park we’ll make a quick stop to enjoy the view, talk story, and take a group photo. When we all make our way back to Archie Baker Park, feel free to head up Tantalus for another loop!
