safety tips and Honolulu bike laws

Please Biki with Aloha and practice safe and considerate cycling. Pick up a map at any station kiosk for safety tips and bike law information. For a comprehensive list of Honolulu bicycle laws, visit HBL.org.

• Follow all traffic signs and signals.

• Give pedestrians the right-of-way when in close contact. When in doubt, get off your bike and walk it until you feel safe. 

• Ride in the same direction as traffic, to the right of the lane. When a travel lane is too narrow for a bike and a car to travel side by side, ride in the middle of the lane.

• It is against the law to ride on the sidewalk in Waikiki or Downtown. Ride on the roadway, bike lane, or shared pathway. Check out the Hawaii Bicycling League's Oahu Bike Map to learn about designated bike lanes and existing bike infrastructure.  

• Use the bell on your bike to alert others of your presence.

• Maintain a straight, single file line and ride predictably.

• We recommend you wear a helmet.

• Use hand signals to signal your intentions.

Is biking in honolulu safe?

Honolulu was awarded a Bronze ranking as a Bicycle Friendly Community by the American League of Cyclist. Currently, Oahu has 2 miles of protected bike lanes, 46 miles of bike paths, 59 miles of bike lanes, and 40 miles of bike routes. Dedicated bike facilities are created to provide separation between bicyclists and motor vehicles. Bikeways such as paths and separated bike lanes allow bicyclists to ride without merging with motor vehicles, leaving cyclist and motorist feeling safer. Separation allows for a wide variety of people with varying skills, purposes, and speeds to use a bicycle. More bike lanes, paths and routes are planned for Oahu. Visit the City’s Bicycle Program to learn more about bicycle infrastructure and biking laws in Honolulu. Visit Hawaii Bicycling League's website for bike map resources and free workshops on safety and rules of the road.
