“This bike ride reminds us there’s a great alternative to the automobile here on Maui,” said Lee Chamberlain, co-founder of the Maui Bicycling League. “For commuting to work, and for active recreation, bicycles can be a key element of the healthy lifestyle so many are seeking on Maui.”

“We’re thrilled to co-sponsor this bike ride,” said Liz May, co-president of the Rotary Club of Lahaina Sunset. “It’s part of our club’s ‘Go Green, Keep the Island Clean’ initiative.”

Paradise Grill is located at 2291 Kāʻanapali Parkway.

For more information on the May 17 bike ride, contact Chamberlain via email or call (808) 633-8553, ext. 101.
