Maui will once again be hosting a Memorial Ride as part of the global Ride of Silence movement, which takes place in hundreds of locations every year to honor cyclists who have been hit or killed while riding on public roadways. We’ll be riding in silence along the bike path beginning in Kihei for a total of 13.2 miles.
We’ll meet at the intersection of Piilani Hwy & Kaiwahine Street at 8:45am. The group will ride north for 6.6 miles and turn around at Maui Veterans Hwy & Hookele St. To honor cyclists who have been hit or killed on Maui’s roadways, participants are asked to ride in silence wearing white jerseys/shirts.
Optional: Those who wish to ride longer can continue on to Makena Landing Beach Park for an additional 20.8 miles and a total of 34 miles roundtrip.
Ride Leaders: Chuck and Alan
The ride of silence is open to all riders who can maintain average speeds of 10-12 mph. The longer ride to Makena is best for intermediate and advanced riders who can maintain average speeds of 12-14mph. E-bikes are welcome, but we ask all e-bikers to adhere to our safety and etiquette expectations! Equipment is not provided and helmets are required for all riders. All riders should plan to wear white shirts or jerseys to honor cyclists who have been injured or killed while cycling on public roadways.
