About OUR Haleakala  Downhill Bike Tour

Meet at our Bike Shop at 8:45am on the North Shore of Maui in the surf town of Paia. Our mid-morning start allows you to sleep in a bit on your vacation, and enjoy our Bike Tour at a time when roads are most quiet – after the Haleakala Sunrise vehicle traffic and local commuter traffic have come and gone. The temperatures are also warmer, and stores and restaurants are more likely to be open along the bike route. You’ll also save up to $125/person in comparison with a Sunrise Haleakala bike tour!

We supply you with your helmet, rain/wind jacket & pants, gloves, backpack, bike lock & map.  After a safety briefing, you will enjoy a narrated van tour as you’re driven up Haleakala on the same route you’ll then bike down! Your guide will point out the local history, points of interest, and suggestions for places to visit on your ride. Our Maui bike tour is also live and interactive; scan the QR code on your supplied map to see your exact location along the route.

The staging area for our Maui bike tour is at 6,500 ft – where all bike operators on Maui begin their rides.

Our riders get to enjoy a self-guided ride experience starting from 6,500 ft up Haleakala Volcano. This self-paced Maui Bike Tour takes you from high up on the volcano back down to where you started – our bike shop in Paia, on the North Shore of Maui, Hawaii.

With our self-paced Haleakala downhill bike ride, guests have more freedom to stop along the route to eat, shop, and sightsee than on a guided tour.

Haleakala Downhill BIKE TOUR

 About OUR Haleakala DOWNHILL Bike Tour

Meet at our Bike Shop at 9am on the North Shore of Maui in the surf town of Paia. This allows you to sleep in on your vacation, not wake up at 2am to try to catch a sunrise with hundreds of other people and saves you over $125 per person vs sunrise tours. Our 9am Haleakala Maui Bike Tour is by design to let the sunrise downhill vehicle traffic and local rush hour morning traffic pass so you have less vehicles on the road. The temperatures are warmer and the stores and restaurants are open along the bike route.

At our shop we supply you with your helmet, rain/wind jacket & pants, gloves, backpack, bike lock & map. Our Maui bike tour is live and interactive via a QR code for each rider to show their location as well as local points of interests. After our safety briefing, you will enjoy a narrated van tour as you’re driven up Haleakala on the same route you’ll bike down! Your guide will point out the local history, points of interest, and suggestions for places to visit.

Staging for this Maui bike tour is at 6,500 ft. where all bike operators on Maui begin their rides. Our riders get to enjoy the longest self-guided ride with the least amount of climbing from the mountain to the sea. This is a self-paced Haleakala bike tour of the volcano in Maui, HI down to the North Shore of Maui to our cute little surf town Paia.

With our self-paced Haleakala downhill bike ride, guests have the freedom to stop along the route to eat, shop, and visit historic communities, churches, unique shops, art galleries and restaurants or stop to enjoy the beauty of Haleakala. No large groups that you have to keep up with or slow down for, no support vans chasing you down the hill. Stay in your comfort zone and enjoy a true classic Maui Downhill.

Haleakala Downhill FAQs

WHAT DOES THE HALEAKALA VOLCANO BIKE RIDE TOUR INCLUDE?

Our Maui bike tours of Haleakala include all the biking equipment needed for the ride (Redline Monocog Mountain Bike with disc brakes and 29″ wheel, helmet, rain/wind gear, gloves, backpack, map, bike lock), as well as a narrated van tour on the drive up from sea level to our staging area at 6,500′, just before the entrance of the National Park.

On the narrated van tour, your driver will familiarize you with the bike route back down the slopes of Haleakala. Our expert tour guides will explain the history of upcountry Maui, points of interest, Hawaiian culture, and geological features on the route.

Before you leave for the Haleakala bike tour, you will have a safety briefing explaining area guidelines and safety tips for the bike tour. We provide everything you need to have a safe, fun, and relaxing Maui volcano bike ride.

HOW LONG IS THE HALEAKALA BIKE RIDE & How Long does it take?

The bike ride down Haleakala starts at 6,500 ft, and is 98% downhill at an average gradient of 5-6%. You are riding on paved country roads with active traffic, and for most of the ride, there is no shoulder or bike lane.

After a narrated 45-minute drive up from our shop at sea level, you’re usually beginning to bike around 10:30am.

On our self-paced bike ride, you can take your time and stop as often or as little as you’d like. On average, with stops, most people return between 12:30pm – 1:30pm.

1:30pm is the latest that you can return the bikes to our shop!

WHAT SHOULD WE WEAR ON THE BIKE TOUR?

Closed-toe shoes are strongly recommended. For the Haleakala Downhill, most folks are fine in just shorts and a t-shirt. We provide a rain jacket/windbreaker that functions as an added layer, as the windchill can be chilly at our staging area. Full-finger gloves are included in the tour, as well.

On a typical day at 6,500′ around 10:30am (the time and elevation at which you’ll start the ride), temps are usually in the low to mid-60s. We also provide a backpack to put any layers or purchases in on the way down. If the weather looks overcast, windy, or rainy we recommend wearing more removable layers such as pants or a sweatshirt. In these conditions, temps can be in the mid to high 50’s.

WHAT IS THE MINIMUM AGE TO DO THE HALEAKALA DOWNHILL?

The minimum age to participate in this bike ride is 15 years old. The minimum height requirement to fit the bike is 4’11”. Intermediate bike experience is required, as is experience using disc brakes on a bike.

The ride requires maturity; you will ride on paved roads with traffic, and most of the ride does not have a shoulder or bike lane. We trust the judgment of the parent or guardian in determining a minor’s skill level.

DO I NEED TO BE IN SHAPE TO DO THIS RIDE?

The nature of this ride doesn’t require you to necessarily be in shape nor does weight matter as long as you aren’t over the bike manufacturer’s weight limit of 300lbs. This ride is quite easy and you BARELY even pedal! It’s 98% all downhill.

However, riders must be CONFIDENT and COMFORTABLE riding a bike. This ride isn’t for beginners, and not safe if you haven’t been on a bike in years.

If it’s been a while, we recommend getting out on a bike and practicing before you do this ride. While it’s not a physically challenging ride, you are descending at 25+ mph at an average grade of 5-6%. This requires bike handling skills.

You will be sharing the country roads with vehicles and riding a bike down the sloping switchbacks of Haleakala! It’s truly a fun and easy ride AS LONG as you are a confident cyclist and comfortable riding a bike!

ARE THERE ANY RESTRICTIONS?

There are just a few restrictions for your safety:

  • Riders must be confident and experienced at riding a bike with disc brakes
  • Minimum Age 15 Years old.
  • Minimum height requirement to fit the bike is 4’11”.
  • Intermediate bike experience is required, as is experience using disc brakes on a bike.
  • Under 18 must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
  • Maximum Rider Weight: 300lbs
  • Must not be Pregnant
IS THERE A CHANCE OF GETTING LOST?

On our Maui downhill bike tour, it is easy to stay on route, so long as you are paying attention.

On the narrated drive up to our staging area, your driver will point out any turns you have to make. You will also receive a detailed map with your biking equipment. The map also has a QR code that you can scan to pull up a live map showing where you are in relation to the bike route.

We provide roadside assistance. In the event that you do miss a turn, we can help you get back on track with directions over the phone. In most cases, you can backtrack a short distance to get back on route. In the worst-case situation, our guides can come pick you up and drop you off back on the route, or bring you back to the shop. 

ARRIVING ON CRUISE SHIP, CAN WE MAKE IT IN TIME?

Guests arriving on a cruise ship at the Kahului harbor come do our bike ride all the time! You arrive at the dock at 8am and our shop is about 15 minutes from the Harbor. Taxi or Uber is your best bet and costs around $20 each way. Check-in time is 8:45am and we are open at 8:30am.

CAN WE BIKE & CATCH A DEPARTING FLIGHT ON THE SAME DAY?

You will return to our shop in Paia by 1:30pm at the latest. From our shop, it’s about a 15 minute drive to the airport. Security lines do tend to be longer here on Maui than at mainland airports, so do factor that into your day’s timeline, but yes, you can fly the same afternoon as your bike tour!

You are more than welcome to store your luggage at our shop, customers do so all the time and we are more than happy to keep it secure until you return.

DO YOU OFFER GUIDED TOURS? WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE SELF-PACED TOUR?

On a typical guided tour, bikers ride in a group of about 10 at the pace of the person in the front of the group. Individual bikers cannot choose their own stops and thus are not able to stop and visit towns along the way. This type of tour is ideal for those that prefer a more structured experience, or for those without a rental car and thus in need of transportation to and from their hotel.

At Maui Sunriders, we recognized the need to give visitors an alternative to the old-style Haleakala bike tours, that resembled a more familiar type of cycling done at home with family and friends.

In 2001, we started a self-paced Maui bike tour where people could ride down Haleakala without the cumbersome style of riding in a group and with the freedom to stop and go at a more relaxed pace. This way, you also avoid the unpopular hindrance to the local traffic that larger groups create. We eliminated hotel pick-up and drop-off where you spend more time driving around in a van than on the actual bike ride. By riding back to our shop in Paia at the end of the tour instead of being transported back to the hotel, you‘ll be able to explore the North Shore of the island and get to see a little more of the charming small towns in Maui. Whether you are driving from the south side of the island or the west, directions to our shop are as simple as three right turns and you’re at our front door.

We provide roadside assistance for all of our Maui bike tours. Just remember to bring your cell phone to call us at any time for assistance.

We do not offer guided tours for a few specific reasons. Guided groups can be problematic to local traffic making it difficult for drivers to pass. The tail vans block traffic and make it difficult for local and tourist drivers on the road, potentially making drivers more upset and aggressive. It can also be difficult for varying abilities to either keep up or slow down to stay with the whole group. Riding in a big guided group can also be dangerous if a rider directly in front of you suddenly brakes.

We only provide self-guided Haleakala Downhill tours and we make sure every rider we send down the road is capable to bike down safely. If we determine anyone can’t safely do this bike ride we may have to pull you from the ride. For this reason, if you are unsure of your riding ability and haven’t been on a bike in years, we recommend going with another operator that provides guided tours.

DO YOU OFFER HOTEL PICKUPS?

We eliminated hotel pick-up and drop-off where you spend more time driving around in a van than on the actual bike ride. Since our tour is self-guided, everyone finishes the ride at different times. By riding back to our shop in Paia, you‘ll be able to explore the North Shore of the island and get to see a little more of the charming small towns in Maui. All our guests enjoy the freedom of having their car and exploring Paia, North Shore beaches and waterfalls or even going up to the summit for sunset after the ride.Whether you are driving from the south side of the island or the west, directions to our shop are as simple as three right turns and you’re at our front door. By eliminating hotel pick up and drop offs, this also helps to keep our rate the lowest on the island.

DO YOU PROVIDE ROADSIDE ASSISTANCE?

Yes, of course. Biking down Haleakala at your own pace allows you to experience the ride at a speed that feels comfortable to you, as well as allowing you to stop and go as you please without getting stuck in a group or to having to keep up with someone else’s pace. However, you do not have to sacrifice your peace of mind. If you need assistance with anything at any time along the Maui bike tour, we will always be available. Just remember to bring a cell phone with you to call us for assistance.

In the event that you miss a turn, you can always call your guide. We can help you get back on track with directions over the phone. In most cases, you can backtrack a short distance to get back on route. In the worst-case situation, our guide can come pick you up and drop you off on the route or bring you back to the shop. 

COULD THE RIDE BE DANGEROUS?

Like any other outdoor activity, there are inherent risks. In order to minimize those risks, you MUST be comfortable riding a bike, be able to use hand brakes, and be able to stay focused throughout the ride. You are coming down country roads and sharing the road with cars.

If you are a beginner cyclist or haven’t been on a bike in years, this ride likely is not the right fit for you. We recommend practicing on a bike before you do this ride. While it’s not a physically challenging ride, you are descending at 25+mph at an average grade of 5-6%. You will be sharing the country roads with vehicles and riding the bike down the sloping switchbacks of Haleakala!

It’s truly a fun and easy ride AS LONG as you are a confident cyclist and comfortable riding a bike on the road!

At Maui Sunriders, we are committed to keeping you safe. We take great effort to provide you with the safety awareness, guidelines, and briefings you need to have a safe and fun trip. However, ultimately you are in control of the bike. Remember this is a Maui biking tour, not a race. If you decide to bike down Haleakala at 50 mph, then you can make the bike ride very dangerous. And, of course, this is not the place to learn how to ride a bike, so you need to be experienced at riding a bike. Although it is not a difficult ride, you should be a competent, confident rider.

ARE THERE DAYS THAT ARE LESS BUSY?

As far as riders go, Mondays & Tuesdays are usually the busiest. However, once you start riding, everyone spreads out and it’s not a problem because everyone is going at their own pace and stopping at different locations.

The quietest traffic days are Saturday & Sunday because they are travel days & locals aren’t driving to school/work. However, on Sundays, it’s more likely that some of the businesses in Makawao may be closed.

HOW MUCH SHOULD WE TIP OUR GUIDE / DRIVER?

Tipping is greatly appreciated. Our guides provide you with a fun and informative drive up, as well as make sure everyone is coming down the volcano safely. They work hard daily loading/unloading your bikes, assuring a proper bike fit, as well as the behind the scene efforts making sure your bikes are in top working order and sanitizing all your gear daily.

Our tour guides do their best to ensure that your experience is both informative and memorable. As in any other service industry, tipping is subject to the level and quality of the service provided. (suggested gratuity is 18% however, a gratuity of any amount is always appreciated)

CAN WE RIDE IF ITS RAINY OR WINDY?

We do ride rain or shine. Maui is a tropical climate and it can rain any day of the year. For this reason, we provide rain/wind breaker jacket & pants, as well as bike gloves every day of the year. As long as you are confident and comfortable riding bikes, it can be safe riding in the rain and wind. We hope that our riders have all been on bikes recently (like within a couple years minimum.) If it’s unsafe for anyone, it would be those who haven’t been on a bike in a long time….and are a bit wobbly on a bike to begin with!

When there is rain and wind, it is ok to ride as long as you slow down and anticipate the rain and wind gusts at all times. The upper portion of the ride can be windier as it is more exposed with less trees and the lower portion can be more protected, aside from the occasional gusts coming around a corner. If for some reason the wind or rain is too much for you at the start we can always put you on the bikes at a lower elevation where it is less exposed. If you feel nervous about it, contact us to reschedule. We have a 48 hour change policy so if you give us notice we are happy to move the reservation for you. Feel free to contact us any time if necessary.

We do occasionally cancel a tour if we receive Warnings from the National Weather system and we determine it to be unsafe to ride. Due to our unpredictable and fast changing weather systems on Maui, we can only cancel a tour the morning of the ride. The forecast can change the day before or the morning of, as tropical weather is spontaneous! We aim to make the final decision by 7:30am daily. In the event that we cancel a ride, you can reschedule for another day, or if you can’t book any other day we also offer a full refund.

DO WE SEE THE CRATER / SUMMIT ON THE HALEAKALA BIKE RIDE?

Tours that take you into the national park to see the crater/summit range from $220-$240 per person. Our tour is more than 1/2 the price per person, due to the fact that we don’t enter the National Park. Tours that bring you into the park, will then drive you back down to the same place we begin our bike ride. No tour operator can allow you to bike inside the National Park.

We suggest going into the National Park on your own for a more personal experience at only $30 per vehicle. There are over 35 miles of hiking that you can do inside the park so it may be worthwhile to separate your activities to really take in the park and make it an experience of its own. 

We still offer the longest downhill on Haleakalā and we’re the only SELF-GUIDED company that bikes all the way to the sea, with the least amount of climbing compared to some other companies. All at your own pace, stopping wherever you’d like on the way down.

Most of our guests visit the park another day or go after the bike ride to watch sunset. A lot of locals say the sunset is just as beautiful (if not MORE) and much warmer, less people (no reservation needed) and so much less of an ordeal, like waking up at 2am on vacation. With that our favorite recommendation is to join us at 9am for your downhill ride. Enjoy Paia and the beaches after the ride, maybe have an early dinner in town and then drive up and catch sunset. You can enter the park an hour early and explore the park, hike around a bit and see it more than you would at sunrise. Bring a towel, bottle of wine or beverage of choice, Hawaiian snacks and see the spectacular sunset! It’s warmer at the crater than it will be waiting for the sun to rise. You can also look up the volcano and see if the weather is to your liking to view sunset, where as with sunrise it is all or nothing at 3am!

Some guests opt to do sunrise on their own & then join us for a Downhill Bike Ride. Since our tour starts at 9am, guests that still want to experience sunrise on their own and save a bundle of money, go up on their own and then drive down immediately following sunrise. You will need a reservation with the National Park as mentioned above, it is very crowded so get there early and you do need to wake up around 2am to get up the volcano in time. It takes about an hour and a half to come down and reach our shop in Paia, plan to leave the summit at the latest by 7:30am. Then you can park your car for the day and we will shuttle you up for your bike ride. When you finish your ride your car will be parked in Paia ready to explore the North Shore.

Keep in mind all the sunrises and sunsets are 50/50 that you will have incredible views due to our tropical weather and clouds that come through. At least for sunset you can decide if it’s worth it but for sunrise it’s all or nothing, due to your reservation and its dark and cold so you can’t totally see the weather. Remember sometimes you see clouds above but you often times break through the clouds and travel a couple 1000’ feet above the clouds. It varies from day-to-day!

CAN WE BIKE UP INTO THE NATIONAL PARK?

Yes, you can bike into the park but there are a couple important things to note:

First, the bikes that we provide you are downhill-specific. They aren’t geared to climb. So while you can go up, it will be very difficult with these bikes.

Second, it’s important to know that you will have to pay to enter the park. The bike entrance fee is $15 per bike. The National Park accepts credit cards only.

Third, note that once you enter – it doesn’t look that much different from where you just came from or what you will experience in the first 30 minutes of your downhill ride. From the gate entrance it is an additional 12 miles and 3500′ climb to reach the summit. On a geared bike and being an avid cyclists, that could take about 2 hours to reach the top. You have to gain a couple 1000′ feet to start to see the change in geology and what some consider it to look like mars.

DO YOU OFFER HALEAKALA SUNRISE TOURS?

We used to offer the sunrise tour for almost 18 years however, as of 2019 we are no longer partnering with the National Park and we have concluded our sunrise tours. The prices have gone way up & we don’t feel it is the best value and nor safest experience to pass on to our customers. To book a sunrise bike tour with any operator these days will cost you about $220-240 per person! We share with our guests the option join us for a 9am self-guided bike ride for more than 1/2 the price less. Most of our guests opt for sunset after their Downhill Bike Ride on your own.

Sunset is just as beautiful (if not MORE) and much warmer, less people (no reservation needed) and so much less of an ordeal, like waking up at 2am on vacation. With that our favorite recommendation is to join us at 9am for your downhill ride. Enjoy Paia and the beaches after the ride, maybe have an early dinner in town and then drive up and catch sunset. You can enter the park an hour early and explore the park, hike around a bit and see it more than you would at sunrise. Bring a towel, bottle of wine or beverage of choice, Hawaiian snacks and see the spectacular sunset! It’s warmer at the crater than it will be waiting for the sun to rise. You can also look up the volcano and see if the weather is to your liking to view sunset, where as with sunrise it is all or nothing at 3am!

Furthermore, when you do the sunrise downhill option, it’s sorta confusing because you have to get back in the shuttle van and drive down to 6500 ft’ where all bike tours are Permitted to start and that is where we begin our ride…(right outside the National Park entrance.) So you don’t get to bike down from the summit. We start our tour later in the day so that you have time to catch the sunrise if you wish and to prevent biking with all the sunrise traffic coming down the mountain as well as local rush hour and for some that can be a little unnerving. With our ride beginning later, there are far less cars on the road which makes it safer and much more comfortable cruise down the mountain. Lastly, most of the shops & restaurants that you get to explore on our self-guided tour will be closed in the morning during the sunrise rides.

Some guests opt to do sunrise on their own & then join us for a Downhill Bike Ride. Since our tour starts at 9am, guests that still want to experience sunrise on their own and save a bundle of money, go up on their own and then drive down immediately following sunrise. The entry fee is $30 per car and a $1.50 online reservation fee through the National Park website. (book ahead!) For 2 people you will already save $240 that you could use to go out for a great dinner!

You will need a reservation (they can be almost impossible to attain!!!) with the National Park as mentioned above, it is very crowded so get there early and you do need to wake up around 2am to get up the volcano in time. It takes about an hour and a half to come down and reach our shop in Paia, plan to leave the summit at the latest by 7:30am. Then you can park your car for the day and we will shuttle you up for your bike ride. When you finish your ride your car will be parked in Paia ready to explore the North Shore.

Keep in mind all the sunrises and sunsets are 50/50 that you will have incredible views due to our tropical weather and clouds that come through. At least for sunset you can decide if it’s worth it but for sunrise it’s all or nothing, due to your reservation and its dark and cold so you can’t totally see the weather. Remember sometimes you see clouds above but you often times break through the clouds and travel a couple 1000’ feet above the clouds. It varies from day-to-day!

HOW DID BIKING DOWN HALEAKALA START?

In 1983, “Cruiser Bob” the originator of the “Maui Volcano Bike Tour” created what is today one of the most popular Maui activities. Bob’s Haleakala bike tour became an instant success story. It grew rapidly with thousands of visitors a year riding down the volcano. Due to his success, many other companies were formed that used Bob’s biking tour as a model. A few of them are still here, while Bob moved on to other biking adventures. Some claim to be the “original,” but this fame belongs rightly only to Cruiser Bob.

BIKE DOWN HALEAKALA REVIEWS

"BEST EXPERIENCE HANDS DOWN ! I highly recommend this company and I truly recommend the tour guide free experience. Which is what this company offers. It's such an easy ride down sloping 99% of the time so gravity does the work, not you. Anyone can truly do this, Whether you are in shape or not, don't be scared it's doable. Also the tour free experience allows you to enjoy the towns, the farms, and make as many photo stops as you'd like. The driver explains the entire route on the way up, you go in a van. So there's NO WAY to get lost if you pay attention while the driver is explaining the do's and dont's. Bring cash so you can pay at the shops and tip the amazing drivers. They even stored our luggage for us! Very warm and inviting business. I will definitely do this again with this same company."

SAMIRA

"I’ve done the ride with a few companies, and this was the best experience by a stretch, and that’s saying something because we keep coming back because it’s always been a great experience. The price is right. Our guide up the mountain was informative, funny, personable, and helpful. The equipment was a game changer when compared to the other companies— it’s top notch and very well kept. In short, you can’t go wrong with this crew."

SKYLAR

You will have a hard time finding a better staff in all of Maui! The shop is clean, bikes are in perfect shape, all equipment is well maintained! The owners are so friendly and helpful, our driver was extremely knowledgeable and funny, making the downhill ride our favorite thing we have done this trip! Cannot say enough good things!

JAMES

"This is definitely the company to use when biking down Haleakala! Other companies have their employee at the front and back of the line and you "follow the leader" down the mtn, which is not only dangerous, but boring!! You're on THEIR time. With Maui sunriders, YOU set the pace, YOU CHOOSE to stop when and where..it's great!!!! We had plenty of time to enjoy the ride and take pictures. As a party of 7 (a grandma, grandpa, mom, dad and 3 teen /adult children, we all loved it and would definitely recommend Maui Sunriders!!!"
