POW! WOW! By Biki

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, starting in Summer 2019 Biki riders will be able to 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.

DOWNLOAD THE TOUR

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. 

Biki is available 24/7 and 365 days a year to individuals 16 years of age and older. Subscribe to our newsletter and follow us on social media to be the first to hear about the release of the Biki-themed bike audio tour.

Before you get started...

  • Sign up for a Biki Membership on GoBiki.org or the Biki Mobile App. The Free Spirit Plan gives you a bank of 300 minutes for only $20 so you'll have extra time to use after your tour is complete. 
  • Review Honolulu cycling laws and safety tips. Stay alert and ride with only one earbud so you can hear surrounding traffic. Always walk your Biki on the sidewalk. 
  • Grab some water, sunscreen and a camera! Be sure to post a photo of your favorite mural and tag #GoBikiHI and #ShakaGuide! It may get featured on Instagram and Facebook

"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
