Haleakala Bike Tours
Out of the numerous activities on the island, Maui mountain bike tours have become the most popular. Enjoying a Haleakala sunrise before a leisurely Maui bike ride down 30-38 miles of winding road is an experience few forget. The dormant volcano reaches just over 10,000 feet at its summit where you'll watch sunrise. You'll then be taken to the base of Haleakala National Park to begin your bike ride. There are many Maui bike companies that take part in this daily ritual.
The following companies are well known Haleakala bike tours for you to pick from.
- Bike it Maui
- Skyline Hawaii
- Mountain Riders

Here are some available Maui bike tours:
Haleakala Sunrise, Bike Ride & Zipline Tour
If you plan on making the trip to Haleakala for a scenic bike ride, why not combine your efforts with a brilliant combo tour that also includes a visit to the summit in time for sunrise, as well as a thrilling multi-line zipline ride over canyons and the eucalyptus forest of Upcountry Maui.
Skyline Hawaii, the first established zipline company in all of Hawaii, offers daily Haleakala Sunrise Bike & Zip Tours for guests 12 and over seeking a bit more flair to their volcanic biking adventure. Your morning begins between 2 and 3am with a direct pick-up from your accommodation, where you’ll be transported through the winding hills of Upcountry until you reach Haleakala National Park and eventually, the summit, all the while learning valuable information about the local culture, flora and fauna, history and more from an experienced tour guide.
Guests will then be driven back down to 6,500 feet to begin their 21 switchback ride down the slopes before arriving in time for a continental breakfast, and a final thrill along 5 ziplines, an Indiana Jones style swinging bridge, and the only pendulum line in the Aloha State. If you like the idea of getting the most ‘bang for your buck,’ this combo tour of Haleakala’s top adventures is a Maui winner. Book online or directly by calling Skyline Hawaii at 1.808.745.1323.

Haleakala Bike Rentals
You can also take a self-guided trip by renting a sterling Maui bicycle rental from Krank Cycles. This Makawao-based company offers half and full day rentals on a number of bikes that are ideal for Haleakala’s downhill conditions, including the 20-inch Krank Lilripper and the Cannondale Hard Tail Mountain Bike. Their line of Raleigh Tokul mountain bikes range in size from XS to XL, and feature both front suspension for excellent comfort and disc brakes for optimal safety.
The staff at Krank will fit your suspension for your weight and style, and each rental comes with flat pedals, a helmet, a repair kit, and maps. (Backpacks, protective armor, and clipless pedals are also available on a first-come, first-serve basis.) What’s more, renting from Krank Cycles will enable you and your crew to cruise through the National Park, as commercial bike companies are prohibited from shuttling riders inside the park to depart from the crater.
