Maui Cyclists. PC: Maui Bicycling League

This Earth Month, to celebrate their favorite sustainable mode of transportation, the Maui Bicycling League (MBL) has organized a 17-mile “Haʻikū Ride Around” on Saturday, April 27.

The casual ride around Haʻikū begins at Haʻikū Marketplace (810 Haʻikū Rd) and takes cyclists up and down the West and East Kuiaha, Kokomo, Kauhikoa, and Kaupakalua roads. MBL is calling members and non-members to gather at 8:30 a.m. for a 8:45 a.m. briefing and 9 a.m. departure time.

Maui Bicycling League says the ride is best suited for intermediate and advanced cyclists who can maintain average speeds of 12 to 14 mph. Riders should expect a total elevation gain of approximately 2,000 feet with a max grade of 7.3%.


E-bikers are welcome and expected to follow the league’s e-bike safety and etiquette expectations.

Like most of their monthly events, registration is required at
