Mauna Kea Road Access Plan - Proposed Rule Prohibiting bicycle access past visitors center.
Quote | Reply
The new UH MK Access Plan rules prohibit bicycles beyond the visitors center. This prohibition seems pretty silly with the low traffic volumes and speeds on this road along with must be very, very low bicycle traffic volumes.

There are currently two days left to comment on the plan. https://www.hawaii.edu/...feNripKjQyKnKVFdOStc

Comments are by email. This is typically a bucket list ride for most cyclists. But even if you don't plan this one as a future ride, please consider providing a comment in support of allowing continued bicycle access to the top of Mauna Kea Access Road. This rule is likely the result of minimal comments or support and is typical anti-cycling.

Thanks for bringing attention to this. Email sent.

Rode MK from Hilo last labor day weekend, and it was amazing. It would be a shame if that opportunity disappeared for others.

Thanks for posting. I emailed them. I'm now officially a full-time Big Island resident - not sure if that carries more weight or not, but fingers crossed. They kind of sneaked that one in there.

I don't know if I will ever have the opportunity to ride up there, but I think it is such an amazing ride I don't want them to take that away from others, so I emailed them. Thanks for bringing this up.

This sucks!! I attempted this back in 2012 from Waikaloa beach resort, I made it to the second switchback before turning back because I had to ride all the way back to Waikaloa. Almost 10 hours in total riding. I really hope to do this again one day, and this really sucks if this becomes reality.

Thanks for posting

Email sent. I'm unlikely to make the attempt, but hope others will continue to get the opportunity. Good luck!

Ditto everyone else. I wrote to them as well.
