Beach-Hop Bicycle Tour - Sunday Feb 26, 2017
There's a another (informal) group ride on Sunday, February 26th in downtown Hilo! This is a great way to meet other cyclists, learn biking skills, and feel more comfortable with urban riding.
Meet at 2:00pm at the Mo'oheau Bandstand, in the park strip along Hilo Bayfront (across from Cafe Pesto). There's plenty of parking around that area, in case you need to drive from out of town. Make sure your bike is safe to ride before you come, as there will be no bike mechanics offering their services at this time (it's the weekend, after all!).
The organizer/guide Olivia will lead you along the Hilo Bayfront to Coconut Island via Banyan Drive, then along Kalanianaole Ave out to Richardson's Beach Park. The group will be stopping frequently along the way to explore various beach parks, toss a frisbee, and check out a short jungle hiking trail. The ride will culminate with a dip in the ocean at Richardson's before we head back to downtown Hilo. This route is mostly flat, all pavement, and about 10 miles round-trip.
What to Bring:
- a safe bicycle (aired tires, working brakes and shifters, lubed drivetrain, etc)
- your helmet
- plenty of water and snacks
- bike lock + key
- patch kit, spare tube, tire pump, etc.
- bathing suit & towel
Please RSVP to Olivia by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
PS: If it is pouring rain we probably won't go... give your phone number when you RSVP to receive a call/text update on Sunday morning.
PPS: Bicycling is an inherently dangerous activity. By participating, you accept these risks. You are responsible for your own safety while on this ride. Also, the ocean is dangerous and when in doubt, don't go out. Use your head, be safe!
