On June 16, 2012, Kalihi Valley Instructional Bike Exchange (KVIBE) will host “Aloha Saturday.” The event will take place at KVIBE’s warehouse located at 1638 Kamehameha IV Road from 10AM to 5PM.

Aloha Saturday will kick off a summer full of bicycle gatherings at KVIBE. Working in partnership with Aloha Fixed and the Kickstand, Aloha Saturday will feature GoldSprint races, HNL Bike Polo exhibitions, and a “best in show” bike contest. GoldSprints allow two participants to race each other via bicycles mounted on rollers, as a computer tracks their progress and projects the data on a screen. HNL Bike Polo is a local organization of cycling enthusiasts who meet weekly to practice the exciting sport of bicycle polo. All major local bicycle shops will be graciously sponsoring the event with prize incentives.

KVIBE is catalyst of preventive public health, offering healthy bicycling activities for youth and the community. It is a program of Kōkua Kalihi Valley (KKV), a non-profit Community Health Center that is dedicated to promoting healthy endeavors for the community’s youth. “With obesity and chronic diseases like diabetes on the rise across the state, we hope to introduce more and more people to the fun, health-promoting world of cycling,” said KKV’s Executive Director, Dr. David Derauf. “By instilling in Kalihi’s children a love of bikes, KVIBE promotes healthy habits for life.”

Community members and cycling enthusiasts of all ages are invited to join KVIBE for Aloha Saturday on June 16, 2012. ***Aloha Saturday event page for further information.***

Copenhagen Bike Rental said...

christania’s “bike rental copenhagen” bikes are rolling across the city. The system, less than a year old, is funded by christania’s municipal government. It is currently only in one of christania’s 22 administrative districts. Although a 2nd generation system, there are 12 “Houses” in this district, each with around 40 bikes. The yearly subscription cost is the equivalent of $2 US, and allows the use of a bike for up to four hours at a time. In less than a year, there have been 6,000 subscriptions sold. There are larger 3rd generation systems in the world, which do not have a subscription to bike ratio as big as that.
