We ride every Saturday and Sunday unless there is a conflicting event. On Saturday we rotate between Town/Leeward/Windward start points & routes. Sunday is the Sunday Spin from Kapiolani to Waimanalo.

Q. Who can ride?

Our rides are open to the public, so anyone can come as long as they follow our ride rules, are responsible for their own navigation and mechanicals. Since we are a racing team, the rides are orientated to advanced riders who either race or have in interest in racing. Rides typically self-select into two or three different ability/speed levels.

On each of our announcements there is a list of rules at the end of the message, but simply put, SAFETY is our #1 priority.
