Because of COVID-19 concerns, we won't be holding a mass start bicycle race this year. However in lieu of the race we are holding the Dick Evans Memorial Road Ride/Virtual Challenge on the same date: Sunday August 29th between 5:45 a.m. and 1:00 p.m.. The virtual challenge is based on moving time, allowing riders to safely stop for all traffic signals without impacting their time, as well as stop for refreshments as needed. The challenge segment is a subset of the traditional route starting on Kunia Rd. after the end of the neutral section. To compete in the challenge you must start the segment no earlier than 5:45 a.m., and complete the segment by 1:00 p.m.
To register, sign up on BikeReg, and then follow the registration instructions in the BikeReg confirmation email. To be eligible for prizes, your ride must be uploaded to Strava, or you must upload a GPX file on challenge.asbra.org no later than 1 p.m. on Sunday.
While participants may ride the segment at an time during the challenge window, we will also be leading a group ride through an entire 112 mile loop from Hawaii Kai. The official start time for the group ride is 5:45 a.m. departing from the shopping center in Kalama Valley at 501 Kealahou St. From there we will be riding unsupported, and at a neutral, no-drop pace, to the Royal Kunia Park & Ride (94-711 Kupuna Loop, Waipahu, HI). There we we will regroup, take on supplies from the nearby Circle K, and roll out as a group around 8a.m. (exact time will depend on when the group arrives from Hawaii Kai). From there we will follow the traditional DEMRR course. Planned regroup and water stops are to be announced. The entire route can be viewed on Strava.
