I’m very pleased to see this proposed 25 mile Greenway between Ukumehame and Līpoa Point in West Maui. I hope that it is completed quicker than the 20 years it took to build the North Shore Greenway!

Maui has a keen cycling community. I enjoy cycling, but I do not enjoy it here. To me the roads do not feel safe. Within the last six months I attended the funeral of a good friend and keen cyclist who was knocked from his bike and killed by a young motorist. He’d been cycling the roads of Maui for a good few decades and loved it. I am aware of other cyclists who have lost their lives on the roads here.

I believe that there need to be safe ways to get around on this island for those who choose modes of transport other than the car.
