BRUCE ASATO / BASATO@STARADVERTISER.COM Bicyclists rode along the Pearl Harbor Bike Path on their way to downtown Honolulu on Saturday after a rally at Neal S. Blaisdell Park in Aiea, part of the annual Zachary Manago’s Ride in Paradise. The riders sought to call attention to the need for infrastructure upgrades to make Oahu safer for bicycles.
BRUCE ASATO / BASATO@STARADVERTISER.COM Chad Taniguchi, executive director of the Hawaii Bicycling League, led a chant of “open the gate, it’s not too late,” addressing the locked gate near the admiral’s barge boathouse at Pearl Harbor which forces riders to travel on the more hazardous Kamehameha Highway. City Council member Brandon Elefante told Saturday’s cyclists that a letter has been sent to the Navy seeking to reopen the gate.
