Maui Ride of Silence

May 18, 2019 @ 8:30 am - 12:00 pm

Maui will be participating in this 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. This includes Karl Hagen, a Maui resident who was struck and killed by an impaired driver while cycling on the Pi’ilani Highway in 2014. The national ride, held since 2003 during National Bike Month since 2003, aims to raise the awareness of motorists, police and city officials that cyclists have a legal right to the public roadways.

On May 18, participants will ride 22 miles in silence from Kihei to Kahului and back. Riders are encouraged to wear white and cycle at a steady pass not exceeding 12mph. The ride will be led and trailed by trained Maui Bicycling League ride leaders. Advocacy updates and discussion will resume at Boss Frog’s following the ride, with refreshments compliments of Robin Hagen, in commemoration of Karl.
