Update: Shaka Guide is updating their Biki tour to include the new 2020 POW! WOW! murals! Until then, the tour will not be available for download. Thank you for your patience!
Explore the famous Kakaako murals by Bike using a free, interactive App.
It’s been just over two years since Biki bikes hit the streets of Honolulu, and we hear all the time that residents and visitors can’t remember getting around to their favorite sites and attractions without the option of bikeshare. But, we pride ourselves on always trying to find opportunities to keep your Biki experiences fresh! We love coming up with creative partnerships that give our members and first time riders more reasons to get outside and ride.
Thanks to support from Hawai‘i Tourism through the Community Enrichment Program, Biki riders can download Shaka Guide's free Biki Street Art Tour and participate in a fun, self-guided ride that offers the unique backstory on some of POW! WOW! Hawaii’s most popular murals and artists.
What was the artist thinking when they designed the piece? How long did it take to complete? What famous Hawaiian mythologies are represented, and how did the Hawaii of the artists’ dreams and childhoods appear in their work? Which world-famous artist created the masterpiece at Biki headquarters? The project team learned all this and more to create over 40 minutes of behind-the-scenes content and a step-by-step guide to navigating the murals by bike.
Residents and visitors can download the tour for free here at any time, and then make their way to the start of the tour within Kaka’ako at their convenience. You'll need to be within wi-fi to download the tour, but once downloaded, you can take the tour while off-line.
The tour will remain free of charge until POW! WOW! Hawaii 2020. After February 15, 2020, the tour will cost $2.99.
"Artists from all over the world travel to Kaka'ako to beautify the neighborhood with vibrant public art. We are proud to partner with Biki and their team to give background information on the artists and the stories behind their art." - Jasper Wong, POW! WOW! Hawaii
