    i have vacationed every other year in HHI for the last 30 yrs. And 1 thing that is becoming less and less attractive about the island is that fact that people driving too fast is really disgusting. The rush of cars speeding really distracts from the “island feel”. HHI officials should make it mandatory that all speed on the entire island be no more than 30mph on main roads and less on side streets. It’s really starting not to feel like an island at all. HHI feels just like you in an ordinary city.

    Hi Jeff! The pathways on HHI provide some great, low stress places to ride without interference from cars. Check out their website and you can also find on the road rides with their online maps. Good luck.
