Lol! Take heart, at least the Packers suck like stinky cheese.

Juice with that cheese?
Nah, just a little whine.
OK Nat, shut up and ride.

@ Lynn b. No winners from Hawaii so far. Still have hope for this last month. Lots from Wisconsin!
Lynn b Sat Sep 6 13:32:00 2014
Have there been any winners from Hawaii? I haven't seen anyone.

Minimum. Number 1 in outlaw midnight golf course miles.

Top ten next year. Minimum.

Since we're just under 4 weeks from when the Challenge ended last year, and we have almost an identical amount of total miles, I thought I would mention some states that are already doing better than for the entire 4 months of last year's Challenge.
Top 4 on the improvement list belong to Mississippi, going from 51st place up to 44th, Utah, going from 20th to 7th, New Mexico going to 24th place from 39, and our big winner, (drum roll, please), Hawaii which last year was in 45th place, and has skyrocketed up to 21st. (If they keep this improvement up, next year they will be in negative 3rd place!)

@Robert, Mahalo for the information. If I do it, I will need only the support that a normal group bike ride/race would provide and that would be a SAG wagon support vehicle for just basics or maybe a big repair as I will be traveling extremely lite meaning no baggage whatsoever other than what I have on my bike and in small pack.
******************************
I will most likely be staying in a hotel somewhere for most of my nights during my cross country ride or with friends along the way. As for racing, I only worry about during a sanction race and the rides I do are mostly for enjoyment so this sounds like a ride that I would really enjoy doing and it wouldn't be that far off my route.
********************************
If I get in and pay the fee I more than likely would use the camping services provided and the bike shops may come in handy. Mahalo again for the iinfo. If I pay the fee and am somehow unable to make it to Iowa in time, I would just consider it a donation to a good cause!
Robert Harrison Sat Aug 2 19:01:00 2014
@Kawika...

RAGBRAI is a huge event with thousands and thousands participating. Their are two sorts of payments, one for week long riders, one for daily riders. Because the event is so large they've found they need to limit the number as they cannot provide services for everyone (imagine hauling luggage for 30,000 folks). Thus they have a lottery for weeklong riders. The lottery is an attempt to make it fair for all. I've not had any trouble the twice I've done the ride (2011, 2013). This basically all needs to be done in advance.

You can see the FAQ at: http://ragbrai.com/about/faqs/

There are folks who just ride, but they won't receive services, though I imagine medical personnel will stilll provide emergency care.

Here's what RAGBRAI says the fee provides, "The fee provides daily baggage transportation, SAG wagon service, emergency medical service, camping areas, route markings, daily maps, wristband discounts, camping facilities, a free edition of The Des Moines Register in each of the host communities, ten bicycle shops on the route and in the campgrounds to service your bike, access to long-term parking, bicycle shipping stations, free lost and found mailing service and great Iowa hospitality."

Keep in mind it's really more of party on wheels than a serious ride for folks wanting to make time or distance. Pace lines aren't really allowed (and are actually dangerous given the number of folks on the road who aren't experienced riders).

The next RAGBRA starts in: 351 days 16 hours 49 minutes 3 seconds. :-)

Kawika Plummer Thu Jul 31 18:49:00 2014
@Robert, I'm thinking about doing that next Summer when I ride cross country. Do you pay all at once if you are going to ride all days or is there some other way. Also, what's this lottery I heard about?
Robert Harrison Thu Jul 31 16:01:00 2014
Just got back from RAGBRAI. Thankfully cool this year. Unfortunately couldn't ride every day because of plane rides, airport closures and general travel insanity.
Kawika Plummer Wed Jul 23 19:39:00 2014
Greg, Mine worked fine during the 3 Hills Race on Saturday on Lana'i.
Greg Wolf Mon Jul 21 19:58:00 2014
anybody else lose satellite connectivity yesterday? The Endomondo app on my phone is suddenly no longer able to pick up a satellite connection. My Garmin Edge 800 also crashed after about 15 miles yesterday morning but I was able to reset it and it is working fine now. Having to manually enter my miles is a major drag.

Kawika Plummer Sat Jun 14 19:41:00 2014
This is for the "HBL" Has there been any kind of push to get a public awareness of the "Volunerable User Law" on TV like the "Click It, Or Ticket" campaign you always see there? And if so, is there a link online where I can follow the progress? It just seems to me that most drivers may not even know about the VUL because of no public awareness being made by state based on the amount of drivers that pass within inches of cyclists when passing and most at high speeds wheater we are on bike lanes, shoulders or roads with neither. We are much more volunerable than a person riding in car.

Hi Bob. Mixed plate will keep tracking through the end of the national challenge in September, which nicely coincides with the Honolulu Century Ride. Hope everyone keeps riding too--tracking or not.
Interesting numbers gleaned from the stats:
Hawaii shows 136 riders out of 1,360,301 citizens, almost exactly one in ten thousand--we are as rare and lucky as four leaf clovers.
Our leaderboard shows 113 riders, and as of this morning we have logged 11,258 miles, almost exactly 100 miles per rider--collectively we have met the challenge for Hawaii cyclists and are ready for more; kudos to all.
Finally, the national challenge actually appears to end in SEPTMEBER, which I take to mean that it is never ending--keep on riding!

And don't forget that the challenge to Hawaii cyclists is to ride 100 miles in the month of May. For many, if not most of the riders here (my daughter included), that will be a significant achievement, whether it takes them 31 or more short rides, or they do it in a single epic century.
Mark D York Sat May 10 23:05:00 2014
I will tell you that the incentive of 20 pts for doing at least a mile has worked for me. I do long rides to and from work when I can, but this challenge has encouraged me to put my butt on the bike instead of the couch when I get home even if it is just to go and stretch my legs out.

@Frank I think it is designed that way so folks who don't ride long distances can feel good about their contribution to the challenge. And for the sake of infrastructure, a person that rides everyday past the State Capitol every day might have more influence than training teams that ride on the coast one weekend day. My contribution is zero thus far because of a knee surgery, but when I'm back on bike, hope I see more bikes everyday on my rides, wouldn't matter how far the riders are going.

The point system sucks! You get twenty points for every day you ride for at least a mile. So a guy who rides 20 miles every other day (resting between ride days) gets less points then a guy who rides a single mile every day. By the fourth day, the the 20 mile guys would get 80 pts while the one mile guy gets 84 pts. Even though the twenty mile guy would have ridden 40 miles total while the mile guy would have done only 4 miles.

You'd think the point system would be geared towards incentivising mileage but it seems to be geared to just getting bikes out the door. Which is good in a way but sucks for the guy who likes to have rest days.

Hey Lynn b and all cyclists: train your eyes to go right to license plate of a dangerous driver (can be done with practice), get color, car type, driver description. Stop to write down or memorize license plate. When you reach your destination, call 911 police/nonemergency. Tell police driver was dangerous and almost hit you. HPD will send an officer to make a report. Ask officer to call or visit the dangerous driver and ask driver to change behavior. Ask officer to call you back with a report. HPD's protocol is to do this. Let's educate and change drivers one at a time.

HPD will send an officer to make a report. Ask officer to call or visit the dangerous driver and ask driver to change behavior. Ask officer to call you back with a report. HPD's protocol is to do this. Let's educate and change drivers one at a time.

Since we're just under 4 weeks from when the Challenge ended last year, and we have almost an identical amount of total miles, I thought I would mention some states that are already doing better than for the entire 4 months of last year's Challenge.
Top 4 on the improvement list belong to Mississippi, going from 51st place up to 44th, Utah, going from 20th to 7th, New Mexico going to 24th place from 39, and our big winner, (drum roll, please), Hawaii which last year was in 45th place, and has skyrocketed up to 21st. (If they keep this improvement up, next year they will be in negative 3rd place!)

@Robert, Mahalo for the information. If I do it, I will need only the support that a normal group bike ride/race would provide and that would be a SAG wagon support vehicle for just basics or maybe a big repair as I will be traveling extremely lite meaning no baggage whatsoever other than what I have on my bike and in small pack.
******************************
I will most likely be staying in a hotel somewhere for most of my nights during my cross country ride or with friends along the way. As for racing, I only worry about during a sanction race and the rides I do are mostly for enjoyment so this sounds like a ride that I would really enjoy doing and it wouldn't be that far off my route.
********************************
If I get in and pay the fee I more than likely would use the camping services provided and the bike shops may come in handy. Mahalo again for the iinfo. If I pay the fee and am somehow unable to make it to Iowa in time, I would just consider it a donation to a good cause!
Robert Harrison Sat Aug 3 00:01:00 2013
@Kawika...

RAGBRAI is a huge event with thousands and thousands participating. Their are two sorts of payments, one for week long riders, one for daily riders. Because the event is so large they've found they need to limit the number as they cannot provide services for everyone (imagine hauling luggage for 30,000 folks). Thus they have a lottery for weeklong riders. The lottery is an attempt to make it fair for all. I've not had any trouble the twice I've done the ride (2011, 2013). This basically all needs to be done in advance.

You can see the FAQ at: http://ragbrai.com/about/faqs/

There are folks who just ride, but they won't receive services, though I imagine medical personnel will stilll provide emergency care.

Here's what RAGBRAI says the fee provides, "The fee provides daily baggage transportation, SAG wagon service, emergency medical service, camping areas, route markings, daily maps, wristband discounts, camping facilities, a free edition of The Des Moines Register in each of the host communities, ten bicycle shops on the route and in the campgrounds to service your bike, access to long-term parking, bicycle shipping stations, free lost and found mailing service and great Iowa hospitality."

Keep in mind it's really more of party on wheels than a serious ride for folks wanting to make time or distance. Pace lines aren't really allowed (and are actually dangerous given the number of folks on the road who aren't experienced riders).

The next RAGBRA starts in: 351 days 16 hours 49 minutes 3 seconds. :-)

Kawika - there has not been a TV campaign for the VUL so far. We have been giving Walk Bike Drive Safety presentations to groups and we have also created a small brochure that references it - http://goo.gl/8kh1C
Kawika Plummer Fri Jun 14 14:41:00 2013
This is for the "HBL" Has there been any kind of push to get a public awareness of the "Volunerable User Law" on TV like the "Click It, Or Ticket" campaign you always see there? And if so, is there a link online where I can follow the progress? It just seems to me that most drivers may not even know about the VUL because of no public awareness being made by state based on the amount of drivers that pass within inches of cyclists when passing and most at high speeds wheater we are on bike lanes, shoulders or roads with neither. We are much more volunerable than a person riding in car.
Lynn b Thu Jun 13 01:10:00 2013

Seriously, we're hearing about of accidents lately, a reminder of how vulnerable we are. HBL's Walk Bike Drive-How to drive safely around cyclists pamphlets are a nice tool to help educate people on road safety--I picked up a stack and have been handing them out whenever I can.

Nathaniel Pak Wed May 22 16:13:00 2013
Hi Bob. Mixed plate will keep tracking through the end of the national challenge in September, which nicely coincides with the Honolulu Century Ride. Hope everyone keeps riding too--tracking or not.
Interesting numbers gleaned from the stats:
Hawaii shows 136 riders out of 1,360,301 citizens, almost exactly one in ten thousand--we are as rare and lucky as four leaf clovers.
Our leaderboard shows 113 riders, and as of this morning we have logged 11,258 miles, almost exactly 100 miles per rider--collectively we have met the challenge for Hawaii cyclists and are ready for more; kudos to all.
Finally, the national challenge actually appears to end in SEPTMEBER, which I take to mean that it is never ending--keep on riding!
Robert Harrison Wed May 22 13:38:00 2013
Who's going to keep tracking as part of the national challenge after the local 100 mile campaign is finished?

I live less than 2 miles from everywhere I need to go. After battling town traffic on my bike many years ( and often losing), I reverted to walking. Bike Challenge got me back in the saddle and I'm grateful. My mood even improved at work. Frank, I'll never beat you in the Century Ride, or hucking down Waihee, and I'm not trying to compete with you here, either. Much respect....and happy riding!
Nathaniel Pak Fri May 10 22:42:00 2013
And don't forget that the challenge to Hawaii cyclists is to ride 100 miles in the month of May. For many, if not most of the riders here (my daughter included), that will be a significant achievement, whether it takes them 31 or more short rides, or they do it in a single epic century.
Mark D York Fri May 10 18:05:00 2013
I will tell you that the incentive of 20 pts for doing at least a mile has worked for me. I do long rides to and from work when I can, but this challenge has encouraged me to put my butt on the bike instead of the couch when I get home even if it is just to go and stretch my legs out.
Amy ammen Fri May 10 16:42:00 2013
Look forward to getting on my bike and bypassing the Honolulu traffic
Robert Harrison Fri May 10 16:01:00 2013
Yep, more often, not necessarily more miles. Here's a quote from http://nationalbikechallenge.org/join.html

"The National Bike Challenge is an opportunity to challenge yourself to ride more often."

Frank Tells Fri May 10 12:36:00 2013
I know. I think it's more of just getting bikes one the road than about pounding miles.
Ivy Chuang Fri May 10 11:05:00 2013
@Frank I think it is designed that way so folks who don't ride long distances can feel good about their contribution to the challenge. And for the sake of infrastructure, a person that rides everyday past the State Capitol every day might have more influence than training teams that ride on the coast one weekend day. My contribution is zero thus far because of a knee surgery, but when I'm back on bike, hope I see more bikes everyday on my rides, wouldn't matter how far the riders are going.
Frank Tells Fri May 10 01:59:00 2013
The point system sucks! You get twenty points for every day you ride for at least a mile. So a guy who rides 20 miles every other day (resting between ride days) gets less points then a guy who rides a single mile every day. By the fourth day, the the 20 mile guys would get 80 pts while the one mile guy gets 84 pts. Even though the twenty mile guy would have ridden 40 miles total while the mile guy would have done only 4 miles.

You'd think the point system would be geared towards incentivising mileage but it seems to be geared to just getting bikes out the door. Which is good in a way but sucks for the guy who likes to have rest days.

Shane Bush Wed May 8 02:13:00 2013

Looks like the migratory humans have decided to carve out their own little spot in paradise alongside the bike trail rather than on it. They were hacking away at some tall grass looks like they are in it to win it. I hope they build a high quality cardboard shack , vs some blue tarp.

Man and boy get into argument, boy arrested

05/03/2013

A bike on the roadway allegedly led to an altercation between a 50-year-old man and a 16-year-old boy.
The 50-year-old man, who is the complainant in the case, said the boy was riding the bicycle on the roadway.
The complainant was driving behind. The two allegedly exchanged words and the suspect threatened the complainant with a dangerous instrument. The suspect also allegedly damaged the complainant's vehicle with the bicycle.
The incident happened yesterday in the Keeaumoku area. The 16-year-old boy was arrested for terroristic threatening and criminal property damage

Hey Lynn b and all cyclists: train your eyes to go right to license plate of a dangerous driver (can be done with practice), get color, car type, driver description. Stop to write down or memorize license plate. When you reach your destination, call 911 police/nonemergency. Tell police driver was dangerous and almost hit you. HPD will send an officer to make a report. Ask officer to call or visit the dangerous driver and ask driver to change behavior. Ask officer to call you back with a report. HPD's protocol is to do this. Let's educate and change drivers one at a time.

Heads up. Big shiny new white Ford van almost took me out at intersection of Kinau and Ward. Lucky no one was in the lane next to me so I could evade. Happy bike month! Ride safe!!!

The Hawaii Bicycling League, with help from the local business community and government, is planning the Second Annual 2-day island-wide bicycle ride to:
o Celebrate Zach Manago’s life and his healthy lifestyle;
o Raise awareness among Hawaii drivers, cyclists and pedestrians about safety on Hawaii’s roads by identifying danger zones that need improvement; and
o Raise money for a safety education fund used to educate all users of the roads about roadway laws, and safe driving and riding practices.

Make Zach's vision for a bike-friendly Hawaii real!

WE NEED YOU HERE! This will be the most crucial step in influencing city officials and the Department of Transportation Services to install bike lanes on Waialae. We hope to convince City Council Members Anne Kobayashi and Stanley Chang and DTS Director Wayne Yoshioka the community wants bike lanes. This can only happen if your are physically here. Just an hour of your time this evening may mean bike lanes for eternity on Waialae. Please join us and spread the word.
