The Navy CINCPACFLT had a change of heart today, July 12, 2014 and opened the Navy Gate at the Admiral’s Boat House for more than 100 bicyclist. The cyclist had respectfully requested permission to come aboard and experienced a “right of passage” through the CINCPACFLT Gate. After making their way from the early morning, with a bike ride in “Remembrance of Zachary Manago”, starting at Central Oahu, around Kaena Point, Yokohama, and up the beautiful Waianae Coast to Pearl Harbor and would be finishing the ride at the Hawaii State Capitol. The Navy had initially told the bike group, that even though the Navy had opened the gate for the annual event in the past, the Navy would not be granting the request this year because of the RIMPAC Exercises.

But at the last moment the Bike group was pleasantly surprised by Admiral Harris, Commander, U.S. Fleet and the Navy’s outreach and support by opening the Gate and allowing the Bicyclist to safely continue their journey down to the Hawaii State Capitol. It was for hundreds of riders “Worth the Wait, Navy opens gate.”
