Bike to Work Week kicks off in Hawaii

Hawaii County Mayor Billy Kenoi kicked off Bike to Work Week today with a bicycle ride across Hilo ending at the county government owned Aupuni Center, near the new judiciary complex and state office building.

Bike to Work Week is a statewide celebration of bicycling as a clean, green transportation alternative, a healthy physical activity and an economical means of mobility for many Hawaii residents.

The national event was organized locally by PATH, Peoples Advocacy for Trails Hawaii, a 23-year old nonprofit pedestrian and bicycling advocacy organization.

Bike to Work Week activities will be happening all week on Maui, Kauai, Oahu and the Big Island.
