HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The Hawaii Bicycling League has organized a two-day right around the island of Oahu. Zachary Manago's Ride in Paradise promotes Hawaii Bicycling League's safety education and awareness program. It takes place July 9 and 10.
The ride is in memory of Zachary Manago, an 18-year old who was killed by a hit and run driver last December in Wahiawa.
The ride will stop at several police stations for a brief rest and discussion of road safety issues. At each station, the officer-in-charge has been asked to meet the cyclists and community and discuss the areas in the jurisdiction especially dangerous for cyclists and pedestrians, based either on experience or statistics.
