“Bicycling is an activity that supports health, fitness and a healthier environment, and Maui has the perfect year-round climate for bicycling — but our island offers very few safe places for children or adults to ride,” says Saman Dias, one of the group’s organizers. “We heard from many people who said that they would ride more often but feel they would be putting themselves in danger by riding on our roads.”
