Farrington’s Green Machines Celebrate National Bike Month


Taz rides the bike he rebuilt at KVIBE

Yesterday, Farrington High School celebrated national Bike Month with Green Machines IV.  That’s a sustainable personal transportation show organized by science teacher, Jonathan Lott. Students brought their bikes , Eki Cyclery provided prizes, and K-VIBE offered free bike repairs.  HPR’s Noe Tanigawa reports.

This Friday is National Bike to Work Day, and The Bike Shop will be providing snack for bikers at Thomas Square during morning and afternoon rush. On Thursday night there will be a family night cruise and a Ride of Silence is set for Saturday in remembrance of fallen cyclists.  Sunday, ride your bike to the Zoo with the family, get in free and get goodies too.


A note from Jonathan Lott: Since this is a lead-up event to National Bike to Work Day on Friday, after riding with your kids to school on Tuesday and joining our event, please consider joining the family-friendly Thursday Nite Cruise ride starting at 7:30 p.m. from Eki Cyclery to Waikiki and back. Then get right to bed so you can ride your Bike To Work Friday, stopping by Thomas Square during the morning and afternoon rushes to get some snacks provided by The Bike Shop.  There will also be a Ride of Silence in remembrance of all the fallen cyclists on Saturday (19th) departing from the Capitol at 4 p.m.  Please contact Nick Blank "blankhi@mac.com" if you can participate in this funeral ride.  Then Sunday, ride your bike to the Zoo with the family and get in free/get goodies (contact Chris Sayers at 768-8335, "csayers@honolulu.gov").All electric Tesla owned by Henk Rodgers of Blue Planet
