On the evening of Friday, August 17, Honolulu achieved one million Biki rides! We are thrilled to have reached this incredible milestone and so thankful to our riders for getting us there.
But who took that milestone ride? None other than Honolulu resident, Ashley Galarraga! Ashley checked out a Bike at McCully/Moiliili Biki Stop #450 (Kalakaua Avenue and King Street) and rode 25 minutes to Biki Stop #221 (Ward Blaisdell Center) to enjoy the 24th Annual Made in Hawaii Festival on Friday evening.
Ashley is now the winner of 2 round-trip airline tickets to Tokyo, Japan on ANA Airways and a Biki bike adopted in her honor that displays a message of her choice. We had the opportunity to meet Ashley yesterday at a small ceremony, along with representatives from ANA, to present her prize and learn more about why she rides.

What do you like about Biki? I love the convenience of having a bike available without having to worry about where to secure it. I also like using it to go to events where I know parking will be difficult to find.
As an official Biki bike adopter, Ashley will get to follow her bike's journey and impact on our public dashboard and find out information such as how many miles the bike has traveled, how many calories it's burned, CO2 emissions it's saved and how many people have taken it for a ride. Ashley's will be the 17th adopted bike out of 1000. Stay tuned to see what she chooses for her message! A big mahalo to all our members for joining the countdown to 1,000,000. Cheers to a million more!
