Maui Bike Tours
One of the most popular Haleakala gear and tour providers, Bike Maui offers travelers the opportunity to choose between three self-guided downhill bike tours, depending on their preference for timing and tour inclusions. The Self-Guided Sunrise, a top option for those who wish to start their day with a special sunrise viewing at the summit of Haleakala Volcano, begins with checking in at 3 am in Haiku, while the Self-Guided Morning option includes the same tour of Haleakala National Park but begins at 8 am.
The Self-Guided Express, the simplest and most budget-friendly self-guided option, skips the National Park altogether and begins at 9 am, taking you straight to the starting point at 6,500 feet for your first section of the downhill ride, which you will get to do TWICE!! After your second run at your pace, meet up with the tour van for an Upcountry Maui scenic tour down to Makawao town, where you can grab lunch and then continue the second section of the bike ride down to the Bike Maui home base.
Guests must be 15 years or older, have recent biking experience, be at least 4’10”, and weigh 300 pounds or less to participate. Reserve your spot online at least 72 hours in advance for special pricing, or call 808.575.9575 for more information.
For a fully guided experience, Cruiser Phil’s includes hotel and resort pick-up and drop-off services, beginning at 3 am for the Sunrise Tour and 8 am for the Morning Bike Tour. After traveling up the slopes of the volcano, you’ll be treated to a narrated, guided tour of Haleakala National Park before beginning your downhill biking tour with a professional local guide. Hot beverages are served, and gear like your bicycle, helmet, gloves, and a wind suit are all included in the tour price. During the downhill bike tour, you and your guide will make pitstops in both Kula, for a van tour of Upcountry Maui, and Paia Town, a hippie surfer town on Maui’s north shore, before being returned to your accommodation later in the day. Call 808.575.9575 for more information or booking inquiries.
Maui Mountain Bike Tours
Self-guided Haleakala Downhill Bike Tours are an excellent choice for those who prefer to set their own pace. After meeting in Paia Town at 8:45 am, guests will be briefed on safety and given safety equipment and rain gear, if necessary, before being driven to the biking starting point at the 6,500-foot entrance of Haleakala National Park. Guests can then take 6.5 miles worth of switchbacks down at their own pace, stopping as often as desired for photos before meeting up with the tour van in Kula.
From there, a van tour of beautiful Upcountry Maui will conclude in Makawao Town, where guests have a full hour to enjoy drinks, shopping, food, or just a little R&R. After Makawao Town, guests will get back on the bikes and continue their self-guided tour 7 miles down to Paia Town. This self-paced Haleakala biking option is available for guests at least 15 years of age and with a minimum height of 4’10”, but not recommended for complete beginners.
