Ride Starts @ Ho'oulu 'Āina, 9:00am-Pau (Around 12:00pm)
Space is limited so register today!

Thanks to the generous contribution of the Chamber of Commerce Hawaii, Kokua Kalihi Valley and KVIBE are excited to announce Hawai'i's newest educational bicycle ride, our first annual Kalihi Ahupua'a Ride! This Ride will lead riders through the culturally rich Ahupuaʻa of Kalihi, making important “Story Stops” at historical landmarks where riders will learn and experience Kalihi. Along the Ride, you will see three of the newest art installments in Kalihi, community-created murals in collaboration with 808 Urban that depicts the story of Kalihi as told by its residents.

During the Kalihi Ahupuaʻa Ride, participants will learn about the cultural and historical significance of the storied places of Kalihi and their roles in the changing face of Kalihi. This ride is designed to uplift community spirit by offering the general public information on health resources, nutritious food access points, cultural and historical knowledge about Kalihi, and instilling a sense of pride for those who call Kalihi home.

The Kalihi Ahupua'a Ride is also a fundraising event for the various youth programs. All funds raised for this Ride will be shared between our youth programs.  While it is free to ride in the Kalihi Ahupua'a Ride, making a donation gives back to our community and ensures that our youth programs are able to sustain itself into the future. Through your kind donations, we are able to provide healthy and organic after-school meals, purchase needed supplies for activities, and opportunities to go on educational field trips!

Whether you donate $10 or you decide to become a sponsor, you are supporting programs that serve Kalihi Valley youth. Donate what you can and ride with us! If you would like to make a donation or sign your organization up to be a sponsor, click here or fax/mail a sponsorship application by downloading an application here.
