Zach s Ride supports the Hawaii Bicycling League s (HBL) Safety Education & Awareness Program started by Zach s family. All donations are used for out of pocket expenses to third parties. We've trained League Certified Instructors, created a script for training Roberts Hawaii bus drivers and HPD bicyclist awareness and the laws, and developed a PSA with Jake Shimabukuro for share the road message. None of the funds are being used to support HBL staff or to pay for basic expenses like rent.
