Wai`anae’s Ted Taheny Participates in "Bike-to-Work" Week


Ted Taheny, who works as a cameraman for KHON2 News, participated in the 2009 “Bike-to-Work” week.

Ted regularly bikes to work from his home in Wai`anae, and is an example of how we should all try to use our cars less and be physically active. Ted is a big supporter of bike and multi-use paths on the Wai`anae Coast. He was featured in this video, which aired on KHON2 News in mid-2009.

We will update this soon with a DVD Ted produced on this subject.
