Tour de Kihei Bike Ride

Saturday, August 28
9:00 AM – 11:00 AM
Kamaole Beach Park III

Join us on the Tour de Kihei Bike Ride. Come out and support greener and safer transportation on a ride for bike awareness and bike safety for South Maui and also have a chance to meet candidates running for office.

On the morning of August 28th, we’ll be starting from Kamaole Beach Park III and ride down Kihei Road to Lipoa St. We’ll stop for a water break at St. Theresa’s Church and return by riding south on the Kalama Park Pedestrian Trail. We finish back at Kam III where we’ll have water, light snacks and a chance for people to find out more about bike riding and safety issues in South Maui. The ride itself should take less than an hour. For safety reasons, we’ll be riding in groups of about 10 people.

We have invited our elected officials and candidates for office to join us for the bike ride so they will be more informed about the bicycling needs of the South Maui Community. At the end of the ride, we have suggested that they make themselves available to meet and talk story.

Please RSVP and let us know, so we can plan for snacks. Signup for The Tour de Kihei here (or visit or contact us directly at  874-5955.

Special thanks to: Kihei Community Association, South Maui Bicycles, South Maui Bicycle Coalition, South Maui Sustainability and the local bike riding community for their support.

Support New Local Farmer’s Market in Kihei

Saturdays starting July 31, 2010
8:00 AM to noon (but come early!)
The South Maui Center on Lipoa

Did you miss the opening of the Lipoa Farmer’s Market last weekend? It sold out early at the Grand Opening and we are anticipating more participation by local farmers each week. There is a wide variety of fruits and vegetables available, all grown on Maui and all clearly marked with name, grower, organic/traditional etc. The farmer’s will only keep coming – and more will join them – if the market is successful. That usually means selling out early so they can leave and get on with their day.

The Lipoa Street Farmers Market is located in the parking lot of the new South Maui Center at 95 Lipoa. Easy access and lots of parking is available. Bring your own shopping bags as our goal is to be a “Plastic bag free market”.

South Maui Sustainability has an information table so drop by and talk story about ways we can promote, encourage and support local food production. The market opens at 8 AM and closes at noon or when sold out. Hope to see you there just a few minutes after eight, after we’ve gotten our shopping done 😉
