A little work, a lot of fun for Father’s Day

Volunteers are asked to lend a hand Saturday morning from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m. at the keiki pond at Lydgate Park.

Despite the leaf mold in the water and deposits along the waterline of the keiki pond, families and keiki took advantage of the Kamehameha Day holiday to enjoy the water under clear skies and hot sun on Monday.

Tommy Noyes of the Friends of Kamalani and Lydgate Park said volunteers should bring their own water bottle to the cleaning day. Light refreshments and drinking water will be provided. Volunteers are also reminded to wear shoes for their personal safety due to the nature of the cleanup.

But all is not just work as the Kaua‘i Path invites people to enjoy the Father’s Day Fun Bike Ride on Sunday from 8:30 a.m.

Any rider who feels capable of riding on the road in a group is invited for the run ride. No one gets left behind on this ride, the Kaua‘i Path website states.

Riders should meet at the Marriott Resort and Beach Club upper parking lot. Riders should bring lots of water, a helmet, sunscreen and an abundance of smiles. The intended route is best for mountain bikes and hybrids, but roadies are welcome to show up and plan their own route, the website states.

The ride, described as unsupported with riders needing to be prepared to fix their own flats, will be about 15 miles with options for shorter rides. The anticipated time of finish is about 1:30 p.m.
