You Made It to Maui! Now What? –Maui Bucket List Suggestions

Travel sites love to tell you about exciting things you should add to your personal “bucket list.” Fortunately for us, visiting Maui is usually already on most people’s travel bucket list! So, we’d like to suggest a few things to check off to make your trip to Maui very memorable! 5. Sample the beaches-there’s white sand, black sand, and red sand beaches! Only in Maui. 4. Travel the Road to Hana– You’ve heard of the Highway 1 Coastal Drive in California (it may be on your bucket list!)- well this is like that, only in MAUI. A gorgeous coastal drive, on the east coast from the village of Paia to the town of Hana, features cliffside views, waterfalls, beaches, and rainforests. 3. Try some pineapple wine! Our friends at Maui Wine have the only winery on Maui. It’s truly amazing! 2. Zipline through a rainforest! After you’ve had a little liquid courage, book a zipline tour. Our friends at North Shore Zipline Company offers canopy tours and Camp Maui, which we hear is the most fun you have have on a wire! and last, but not least… 1. Bike the Volcano! The Hawaiian islands are volcanic in nature, and were formed by ancient volcanic eruptions. Maui’s volcanic peak is called Mt. Haleakalā is known as a the “house of the sun.” Viewing the sunrise from the summit in the Haleakalā National Park is one of the most memorable thing you can do on Maui! Maui Sunrider’s Sunrise Tour is the best on the island! We provide all the gear, the transportation, and guides you need to view the sunrise and explore the countryside as you take your time biking down […]

Maui Sunriders launches a new bike tour fleet

What kind of bike would you pick to cruise down a volcano while on vacation in Maui? One with good brakes, we’d hope. Fortunately, this important question is one that we’ve already answered for you! Recently when we were ready to renew our fleet, the company that we usually use, Trek, did not have any bikes in production that could fulfill our needs. After careful research we found a bike specific for our volcano ride the Redline Monocog Disk. Throughout the years we have learned the our clients need a bike that would minimize any potential issues due to mechanical mishap or technical inconvenience. We needed a bike that would guarantee a hassle-free experience, one that performed well and did not impose on the less technically inclined customers the burden of shifting and other bike functions not necessary in an all paved road downhill ride. We needed a workhorse bike— a bike that could handle heavy daily use, but was well constructed and light enough for our guides to load on the top of the van. So, we looked for a single speed bike, with a reliable disk brake and good handling, that was light weight and easy to use. The Redline Monocog Disk from Accell North America Group met all these criteria. We are very pleased to be using Redline in our bike tour fleet. Redline MonoCog: Maui Sunriders Workhorse So far the feedback from our customer has nothing less than great. Many of our clients have said they would love to have a bike like this for themselves! We would be honored to have you come experience the bike ride of a lifetime on our Redline fleet, down […]

Maui Sunriders Gives Back to Paia Community

Maui Sunriders is located in the small town of Paia, Maui. We love our little bohemian town for it’s unique town center, great shopping, colorful community members, and of course, awesome location— a great little beach town on the North Shore. A few months ago, we upgraded our bike fleet. We feel like it’s important to have top of the line gear for our downhill bicycling customers, so we upgrade every year or two. But we wondered what to do with 45 Trek bikes that we were retiring? They were all in reasonably good condition and Trek bikes are high quality machines. Then it hit us, the Paia Youth & Cultural Center! Paia Youth & Cultural Center under a rainbow sky. The Paia Youth & Cultural Center or PYCC as it’s more commonly called is a local United Way agency that provides daily activities— including counseling, mentorship, and homework assistance— and life skills education for the town’s youth. They run a local radio station, a skate park, and a cafe. The PYCC serves children and youth from 9-21. We have raised our own children on the island and have seen some of the challenges that teens face in finding positive outlets and activities.We know that the PYCC offers a very valuable resource for families and youth in our community. So, we decided to donate our fleet’s bikes to the PYCC, as a way to support the work that the PYCC is doing. The kids could keep the bikes at the PYCC or take them home. We really enjoyed donating the bikes, but clearly, the kids were the ones who enjoyed it the most! Thanks for letting us give back, PYCC! […]
