This 4.3 mile Waikiki loop will show you everything Waikiki has to offer. Allow yourself at least 30 minutes for a leisurely ride around the neighborhood. There are 22 Biki Stops available within the route for you to dock your Biki and explore the area. If you want to stop along the route to check out the sites or enjoy a refreshment, find the nearest Biki Stop and dock your bike.

 

The Waikiki route will be ridden entirely on the road, although much of it will be in a designated lane marked for bikes! While it's a flat and easy surface to ride on, please use caution and treat your bicycle like any other vehicle. Hawaii law requires all bicycles to be ridden on the Waikiki roadways, as there are many pedestrians using the sidewalks. Make sure you are comfortable riding on the road before you embark on your trip.

 

To get started, sign up for a Biki Membership on GoBiki.org or the Biki Mobile App, or purchase a single ride from a kiosk.

HERE'S OUR FAVORITE WAIKIKI ROUTE:

 

  • We like to start in the middle of Waikiki at the Duke Kahanamoku statue (A) off Kalakaua Ave and Uluniu Ave. Feel free to find your nearest Biki stop and start your route from there. Kalakaua is a one way road. Please remember to drive on the road, as it is illegal to ride bicycles on the sidewalk in Waikiki. (Stop #328)
  • From the Duke statue, we continue to ride on Kalakaua Ave towards Kapi'olani Park. As you ride around Kapi'olani Park, you will pass the Honolulu Zoo, Waikiki Aquarium, and the War Memorial Natatorium. This is one of our favorite spots to snap a picture of Diamond Head. You can dock your Biki at Stop #518 to enjoy any of the mentioned activities.
  • After you pass the Louise Dillingham Memorial Fountain, you will turn left onto Paki Ave towards Waikiki. (B)
  • You can either ride on Paki Ave or on the Shared-Use Path the length of Paki Ave. The Shared-Use Path is part of the Lei of the Parks, a network of shared-use paths that connect Kapiolani Park to Ala Moana Beach Park. Once you pass Kapiolani Park and the Waikiki Shell, cross Monsarrat Ave and continue along Paki Ave around the Honolulu Zoo. You might even see some giraffes hanging out in the zoo!
  • Once you’ve gotten to Kapahulu Ave, you will ride the length of the Ala Wai Canal on the Ala Wai Blvd bike lane. One a clear day, you’ll be able to see the Ko’olau Mountain Range in the distance.
  • Continue down the Ala Wai until 'Olohana St. You will need to leave the bike land and merge into traffic. If you are uncomfortable doing so, you can also walk the Biki across Ala Wai Blvd at the nearest crosswalk. Look out for Biki Stop #313 on the left side of the road, 'Olohana St will be the next left.  (C)
  • After you pedal down 'Olohana Street, turn right onto Kuhio Ave and walk your bike across the crosswalk into Waikiki Gateway Park. (Biki Stop #311)
  • You will then bike down Kalakaua Ave in the bike lane as you pass Fort Derussy Park, Waikiki Beach Walk, Royal Hawaiian Shopping Center, and International Marketplace.
  • To complete our route, dock your Biki by the Duke Kahanamoku statue at Biki Stop #328! (D)
