The Kalihi Ahupua`a Ride (KAR) is an educational bike ride that leads riders from mauka (mountain) to makai (ocean) in the ahupua`a of Kalihi. The eight mile downhill ride highlights multiple “story stops” where riders can learn about the cultural and historical significance of each place and its role in transforming the face of Kalihi. The KAR is designed and lead by the youth leaders of the Kalihi Valley Instructional Bicycle Exchange program to uplift community spirit by offering the general public information on health resources, cultural and historical knowledge about Kalihi, and instilling a sense of pride for those who call Kalihi home. Funds raised support KVIBE and its activities in the coming year.
