    This is a very nice outfit that provides exceptionally fun tours of Haleakala daily. If you are a cyclist, or just want to enjoy a unique experience, this may be perfect for you.

    I've done the downhill bike ride on the Haleakala volcano several times, and it is a blast! I've paid over $100 per person. I haven't gone with this company, but their rates are very reasonable and you don't need all that much other than the equipment and the ride up the volcano. What's great about it is that you coast 23 miles downhill with only about 1/2 middle of pedaling. You'll enjoy amazing bicoastal views. Bring some money to stop on the way down for lunch.

    If you're into mountain-biking and want to DIY a trip down Haleakala's backside on the Skyline Trail, starting from Science City observatories, then these are the guys you want to talk to. They'll rent you a bike and can usually arrange shuttle service to the volcano summit, leaving you to navigate on your own down the rugged Skyline Trail to Polipoli Forest Preserve, then along dirt 4WD and paved roads back to the bike shop in Haiku. Reliable service and bikes in excellent condition usually here.

    Although you have to wake up at 1:30AM (if you ever went to sleep...) to make it to the bike store by 3AM, this is an amazing experience in Maui. The bike shop prepares a bike, helmet, backpack, waterproof jacket and pants, and gloves if you can get some before they run out. Then they bus you all the way up to the inactive crater of Haleakala so that you can see the sunrise over the crater. The view is so worth giving sleep up for. After sunrise, they bus you down about half way down and let you loose with your bikes. Unlike other bike tours that require you to stay in a group, this one gives you a map and directions with a phone number in case you get lost and let you take your time getting back to the bike shop. You can stop at a number of restaurants recommended by the bike shop on your way back or even stop to enjoy the smells of a lavender field. This is a great thing to do in Maui. Riding down a volcano at 25-30 mph is so exhilarating!

    It was an amazing experience to ride the bike down the volcano after viewing the sunrise over the crater. Our tour guide was very helpful, taking tons of pictures for everyone. This tour actually lets you go off by yourself so you can go at your own pace, I'd definitely recommend this over a bike tour that makes you ride down in a group. Getting up at 2 am is a pain, though, so I'd also recommend you do this early in your trip, it just might be easier if you're still on mainland US time.

Description

One of Maui's longest-running, most professional bicycle tour operators and rental shops offers downhill mountain-biking tours starting outside Haleakala National Park. Coast down the curvy Haleakala Hwy from near the volcano's summit to the sea, or strap on full protective gear to make your way bumpily downhill along the back side of Haleakala via the Skyline Trail. If you're interested in finding other routes around the island, talk to the knowledgeable staff about DIY cycling trips. The shop is located in Haiku, upcountry from Paia on Maui's North Shore.
