HAWAII BICYCLING LEAGUE's Fundraiser:

Zachary Manago's Ride in Paradise 2014

HAWAII BICYCLING LEAGUE's Photo

BENEFITING: HAWAII BICYCLING LEAGUE

EVENT DATE: Jul 12, 2014

THE STORY:

Zach Manago, a promising HPU student, baseball player, and avid cyclist was killed December 2010 while on a ride around Oahu. He was riding on the road shoulder with proper equipment and lights when struck by a hit and run driver. Zach was passionate about safer bicycling facilities and wanted to make Hawaii safe so more people could bike.


Awareness: We'll stop at police stations and invite elected representatives to discuss local safety concerns and how to improve them. HBL's instructional courses on safe cycling on Oahu will be featured as part of our Safety Education & Awareness Program.


Donations: All donations are being used for additional out of pocket expenses to third parties. We've trained League Certified Instructors, created a script for a training video for Roberts Hawaii bus drivers and HPD officers on how to be aware of cyclists and the laws, trained bicyclists and drivers, and developed a PSA with Jake Shimabukuro for share the road message. None of the funds are used to support HBL staff or to pay for basic expenses like rent.


Entry Fees: There is no entry fee for Saturday's ride. Donations are encouraged to HBL's bicycle safety education fund.


More Bicycle Lanes: Read Zach's last major research writing assignment at Hawaii Pacific University. It was written a few weeks before the accident on December 17, 2010. We hope to make his vision into reality through adcovacy and education.


Safety: Riders will re-group at all stops. A sweep vehicle will follow the last rider. If you decide to stop, please let one of the Friendship Ride Leaders or volunteers in a vehicle know. Helmets and front brakes are required.
