What Should I Wear On a Haleakala Bike Tour?

What Should I Wear On a Haleakala Bike Tour?

We often hear this question when visitors book their Haleakalā bike tour. And it is good that people ask because the answer may be different than some might expect. Our bike rides begin at 6500′ and isn’t quite as cold as the Summit of Haleakala.

halealala summitWe recommend that Haleakalā bike riders wear layers of clothing that can be taken off as they make their way down the mountain into warmer temperatures. When you get all the way down to Paia, you’ll probably only need a T-shirt and shorts. Long pants and a jacket are provided with the rain/wind gear included in the biking equipment and sometimes that is all people need. Of course, closed-toe shoes are recommended for all of the Haleakalā bike rides. You may be thinking, ‘where will I put all these clothes as I ride down the volcano?’ Well, for that very reason, we provide backpacks for our Haleakalā bike riders to carry their clothes. 

If your planning on catching a Haleakala Sunrise or sunset on your own, don’t forget to pack a sweatshirt and warm layers! At 10,000 feet above sea level, the temperature can get pretty cold and windy. At sunrise, temperatures generally are in the 40-degree range. On the peak of this Maui volcano, the weather can be unpredictable too. We generally recommend that visitors wear the warmest clothes they have with them, especially during the winter months. But it will be pretty cold even in summer. Some also bring hats, scarves, and even blankets, but make sure you bring a hat that won’t easily be blown off. It’s recommended that those at high altitudes such as at the summit, drink plenty of fluids, basically doubling their intake of water, refueling their electrolytes and eating plenty of carbohydrates to avoid altitude sickness.

The sunrise above the clouds at Haleakalā’s 10,000 ft. summit has been said to be one of the most memorable things you can experience, and we would have to agree. But just remember that at sunrise, the summit will be cold. It will be beautiful and worth the chilly temperatures, but bring warm clothes, particularly layers of clothes for this once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Explore the Beauty of Maui Through a Downhill Bike Tour of Upcountry

Explore the Beauty of Maui Through a Downhill Bike Tour of Upcountry

If you’re trying to plan an unforgettable vacation, Maui is the perfect destination. Stunningly unique beaches, intriguing rainforests, majestic mountains, and picturesque green hillsides with views down to the ocean, beautiful waterfalls, and a dormant volcano with a massive cinder crater are just some of the breathtaking sights you can see in Maui. Come during the winter, and you could also see whales! What more could you ask for? Well, those who want the full Maui experience may opt to see many of these wonders on an exhilarating bike tour.

While several companies offer van tours of Upcountry Maui, a downhill bike tour of the area offers a truly unique perspective that should not be missed. Why do we say that?

Be a part of the scenery. On a van tour, the beauty of Maui is seen mostly from a window, albeit possibly a large window, but still a window. You miss some of the experience like feeling the cool and refreshing mountain air, smelling the eucalyptus and jarcaranda trees, or hearing the rare birds of the region. Taking a downhill bike tour of Maui lets you be a part of the scenery and really take in the landscape from a new perspective. A bike tour of Haleakalā and Upcountry is a uniquely peaceful, inspiring, and at the same time, exhilarating way to discover this part of Maui.

Stop where you like. Van tours of Maui and even guided bike tours have scheduled stops along the route. Of course, these will take you to the major tourist spots that everyone gathers at, and they may even have a favorite restaurant they have booked for the group to eat at during a specific time. There are those who enjoy these more structured tours. But for those who like to explore on their own, a self-paced bike tour affords a more refreshing, personalized experience. On these bike tours, you can stop and go as you please on the route, on your timetable and at your pace. If you see an unusual photo op spot or want to just rest for a while and take in the amazing scenery, then you’re free to stop. You can check out any number of tiny shops, art galleries, and restaurants in the quaint towns along the way. It’s your day. You’re in control and have the peace and quiet to explore at your own pace.

Will you know where the scenic points on the route are though? Yes. On the Maui Sunriders’ downhill bike tour, you’re given a narrated tour of the route by an experienced tour guide as you’re driven up Haleakalā. This narrated tour will provide detailed information about the scenic points of interest on the route, great photo ops, history of the area, Hawaiian culture, and dining options. This is the same route you’ll bike down, so you’ll know exactly where to stop to see the major tourist sights and great places to stop and eat along the route.

Pretend you’re a local. Some visitors to Maui never leave their resort areas nestled along the beach, but in doing so, they miss a very different side of Maui, one equally beautiful and intriguing – Upcountry. This more rural area of Maui is where many of the locals call home. On our self-paced downhill bike tours of Haleakalā you’ll get to explore the many small towns and their charming shops, all at your own pace. One of these quaint towns is Makawao in the heart of what is called Paniolo Country. This rustic little town carries on the traditions of the paniolo or Hawaiian cowboy and here you can get a taste of small town country life by stopping in the many boutiques, restaurants, and art galleries in this historic town.

Bike all the way down to sea level. While some guided downhill bike tours take a detour before reaching sea level and take you back to your hotel, our self-paced bike tours allow you to ride from the mountain all the way down to sea level, back to our shop in Paia. This gives you a chance to see more of Maui and explore this laid back small town. This historic town has numerous colorful shops, art galleries, and a variety of restaurants. Paia, the heart of the North Shore, is also home to some of Maui’s most beautiful beaches, including the Ho’okipa Beach, known as the “windsurfing capital of the world.” With our self-paced bike tours, you can unwind at the beach at the end of the day or continue sightseeing through Paia.

A self-paced downhill bike tour through Upcountry Maui is an experience you’ll talk about for years to come, and our self-paced bike tour provides the freedom and flexibility to make your tour relaxing, enjoyable, and truly unforgettable.

How a Self-Paced Haleakala Bike Tour Compares to Guided Tours

How a Self-Paced Haleakala Bike Tour Compares to Guided Tours

Maui Sunriders Bike Down The Volcano

Most Haleakalā bike tour companies here on Maui offer only guided bike tours, and at first glance, a guided tour might seem like a better option, but there are numerous reasons why a self-paced bike tour is ultimately the best choice. Let’s compare some of the different features of these tours, and see why we refer to our tour as “self-paced” instead of “self-guided.”

Large guided groups.

On average, the guided biking tours of other companies will have about 13 people in each group. The guide, of course, should take into consideration the biking pace of the group, but this can differ greatly from the pace at which you personally like to bike. Thus, this could cause you either frustration if they go too slow or unnecessary stress in trying to keep up. Biking at the pace of the guide could be especially difficult for families with children. While the roads are safe to bike on, large biking groups do create an unpopular hindrance for local traffic and thus could pose a greater risk of an accident.

Small ‘ride at your own pace’ groups.

We started Maui Sunriders with the goal of offering a biking experience that was more accessible to families. Our family has always been active, and we loved biking down Haleakalā with our children. So, we decided to offer a bike tour with greater freedom – one where you can ‘ride at your own pace,’ as we like to say. Whether you want to bike down with your family or with a small group of friends, our self-paced bike tours provide visitors with a more relaxing pace – one more in line with the spirit of aloha.

Scheduled guided bike tour stops.

Those who enjoy structure may like a guided bike tour down Haleakalā. On a guided tour, the group will have several scheduled stops at scenic photo op points along the bike route. However, these stops are ones that the bike tour guide chooses, and because of time and the group size, the guide will probably limit the stops to only a few of the most popular tourist spots. Many of these guided tours do stop for brunch at a restaurant along the route, but here again, they will stop at a restaurant that the guide chooses. And this brunch may be the only time you get to stop in many of the quaint towns with numerous charming shops along the route.

Stop and smell the protea on a self-paced tour.

In contrast, on our self-paced bike tours you have the freedom to stop when and where you want to along the route. Enjoy a relaxing ride down Haleakalā where you can stop, admire the beautiful protea flowers, and really take in the experience with a self-paced tour. The beauty of Upcountry Maui is something you shouldn’t have to rush through with a large group. Stop at the Kula Lodge and Restaurant for breakfast and then stop again at the many shops and art galleries in the small towns along the way. The choice is yours with our self-paced bike tours. This relaxed pace is great for those who love to immerse themselves in the experience, those who want to get the photo op no one else got, and those who like to see how the locals live. This self-paced tour is perfect for families or couples who want to enjoy a romantic ride through an unforgettable part of Maui.

“Self-paced,” not actually “self-guided”

We often refer to our Maui bike tours as self-paced bike rides down Haleakalā instead of describing them as “self-guided.” What is the difference? As you’re driven up the mountain, our tour guides will point out and thoroughly explain different points of interest along the way. Thus, you are given a guided tour of the bike ride as you drive up, but then you can go at your own pace biking back down. This narrated tour will point out various dining options in the small towns on the route as well as explain the history of the area and interesting facts about Hawaiian culture. With this narrated tour, you’ll know where the best places to stop are along the route, but at the same time, you’ll be able to stop on your own timetable.

And while our bike tours are self-paced, your group is not left entirely on its own. Safety is our top priority, and thus we offer prompt roadside assistance. If you need anything on your Haleakalā bike tour, just call us and we’ll be right there to help.

So how do you think the different types of bike tours compare? Would you prefer a more relaxed bike ride down Haleakalā where you can stop wherever you’d like along the route on your own timetable or do you like a more structured ride with a larger guided group? If a relaxed ride with greater freedom is better for your family, then book one of our self-paced bike tours online today and experience the unique beauty of Haleakalā and Upcountry Maui.

On your visit to Maui’s north shore, be sure to stop for lunch in Paia. This charming little beach town has a variety of fun shops and restaurants, all within walking distance. In between Baldwin Beach and Hookipa Beach Park, you’ll find the center of town where Hana Highway meets Baldwin Avenue. Take some time to stroll along the storefronts and do a little shopping while you check out all the food choices. There’s something for everyone, from seafood to pizza and burgers to vegan and raw foods. Here are a few ideas for a great lunchtime meal:

Paia Fish Market

100 Baldwin Ave. paiafishmarket.com

If you’re looking for fresh fish, this is the place. Since 1989, Paia Fish Market has been serving up quality seafood, salads and more. The menu is varied and the prices are affordable. Each day the fish offerings are listed at the counter, with choices ranging from ono and mahi to opakapaka and salmon. Lunch plates can be prepared charbroiled, Cajun, or sauteed. The fish and chips is nicely portioned, crispy, and well seasoned. The salads are big and full of fresh veggies, and they can be topped with fish or chicken. The market also has a number of appetizers and even serves burgers and pasta. Beverages include beer and wine.

Milagros Food Company

3 Baldwin Ave. milagrosfoodcompany.com

You’ll find fresh fish here too, along with Tex-Mex dishes like quesadillas, chimichangas and fajitas. Organic mixed green salads, homemade Spanish rice, and appetizers like black bean nachos with or without carne asada…what else could you ask for? Oh, and don’t forget to try an agave margarita from the tequila bar.

Charley’s Restaurant & Saloon

142 Hana Hwy. charleysmaui.com

Charley’s is well known as a live music venue for the night life crowd, but it’s also an excellent place to enjoy lunch. They’ve been an anchor of the Paia scene since 1969 and are considered a Maui landmark.

They offer a variety of favorites like jalapeno poppers, hot wings, burgers, plate lunches, fish, chicken, and steak. As a saloon, beer and bar beverages can also be ordered. Lunch at Charley’s is a great way to experience Maui’s history and try some local eats.

Flatbread Company

Flatbread makes delicious wood-fired pizzas using organic ingredients, free-range meats, and locally farmed produce. Their flatbread is cooked in traditional clay ovens with dough made from 100% organic wheat. You can order it with or without sauce, topped with choices like homemade sausage, kiawe smoked free-range pork shoulder, organic Maui basil pesto, and of course lots of veggies. They even have vegan and gluten free options. The salads are fresh, and you can customize with your choice of veggies and meats. The atmosphere is charming, and there’s a bar with beer on tap.

Maka by Mana Raw Food Restaurant

115 Baldwin Ave. makabymana.com

A must try for vegan eaters, Maka by Mana is a raw food restaurant that’s an offshoot of Mana Foods, the popular natural foods grocery store at the center of Paia town. Maka’s menu is a fusion between raw and vegan. They offer unique salads like Twisted Beet with spiraled beets and veggies in an almond herb vinaigrette, and Royal Coconut Slaw with Maui coconut noodles and veggies in a creamy basil vinaigrette. They also serve wraps, sandwiches, chili, and plate lunch. Everything is vegan and many items feature all raw ingredients. The desserts are excellent, from coconut kefir yogurt pies and ice creams to hand-made chocolates. Beverages includes fresh juices, coffee, tea, and an amazing array of super healthy smoothies.

Hana Ranch Provisions

Recent guest feedback:

Thank you for such a fun day. We had the best time on your tour.

Jacob was amazing. So relaxed and very knowledgeable about the island and volcano.

If I was to rate all our adventures, I’d say that our time with Maui Sun Riders was my favorite. The tips Jacob gave us going up the volcano were much appreciated. The doughnuts on a stick were a nice treat. You gotta try the guava filled doughnuts. They were AMAZING. Thanks to the backpack with a lock, we were able to explore the little towns and purchase some local art. I like to support local businesses while traveling.

Thanks again for a great experience.

“Unique outdoor fun at our own pace!” 5-stars on TripAdvisor

roundtheworld

This was a great way to spend a morning on Maui, and a full-featured tour, beginning with a narrated tour up the mountain in a van with other guests (I think there were 8 in our group, all couples), and then the view of the sun rising above the clouds, followed by a looonnnggg bike ride down the mountain, at your own pace.

We were very happy with our tour guide, Nikota, who shared his local perspective and stories about places on the way up. He also provided a safety briefing and we were supplied with a backpack with bike lock, and lightweight waterproof pants and jackets. On the way up, he gave suggestions of places we might like to stop on the way back down, for breakfast, coffee, or a souvenir – very helpful.

At the mountain top, we were a bit surprised by the number of people there – this is a popular sight to see, and there is a park ranger there to explain the setting, and even an artist who performed a native chant at sunrise. We had to jostle a bit to get pictures between the row of people who had gotten there even earlier than us, and who had claimed prime spots against the railing which separates you from the crater’s edge. Plenty of room for everyone and there is an inside viewing building as well as some designated overlook area outside. I would say there were probably 200 people at the top of the mountain awaiting the sunrise.

Our guide suggested we leave before the crowd started down the mountain, and expertly managed to give us plenty of time to view the sunrise, but still get us out of the parking lot ahead of the other cars and buses. We traveled a little lower on down the mountain and were given another safety briefing, fitted to the bikes, and given our freedom to make our way down the rest of the mountain by ourselves – about 26 miles as I recall.

Not at all hard to find your way back down the mountain and we were extremely happy that we chose Maui Sunriders because of the self-paced ride – you can take as much time as you like, or speed along if you’re comfortable. We fell into the “don’t bike much – kinda scared to go too fast” category, so we were passed by some of the tours that ride in groups – and we were glad we didn’t have to keep up with them! They were in packs of about 12 bikers, riding together at the pace set by a leader. This would have been too fast for us. The ride down is manageable for infrequent bikers – you coast almost all the way, so your biggest exercise in your wrists – riding the hand brakes quite a bit to maintain a slow pace. (My wife and I bike at different paces, so in order to stay together, we did use the brakes quite a bit! They are disk brakes – very safe and effective – just use them both at once.)

You’re not expected to stay with the other bikers on the tour. Some of the couples we rode up with were off at a good clip, and we were happily letting them pass us so that we could enjoy the scenery with plenty of stops for photos at our own pace. We timed our ride so that we’d hit a breakfast place when they opened at 9am. After a stop there for a leisurely breakfast, we continued on, stopping at a church, some overlooks, and eventually completing the trip by around 10:30.

The bike shop, where you turn in the bikes is literally at the bottom of the mountain and super easy to find at the end of your tour. There are several good choices to stop off along the way for breakfast – we stopped in one of the small towns about 2/3rds of the way down and even saw a well-known celebrity there, enjoying breakfast at the same little cafe.

The scenery is stunning, the road is well paved and safe – plenty of cars coming down the hills, but they all seemed happy to pass us safely rather than in a rush.

We’d recommend this outfit to anyone looking to get up early, take a leisurely ride down a mountain, and experience a beautiful sunrise at the base of a volcano. What’s not to love?

“Everything was perfect! They provide all of the necessary equipment and instruction to have an amazing safe and wonderful experience from the top to the bottom of Maui! Remy did an excellent job with instructions, providing history and information about the island, I got married on Tuesday and we had our first sunrise as a married couple on Wednesday morning at 10,000 feet, over the clouds. I highly recommend you do a sunrise downhill bike ride in Maui and I STRONGLY recommend you book it through Maui Sunriders Bike Co.”

“Great company with friendly staff, but we didn’t end up doing the ride by our choice”

5-Stars TripAdvisor

juliesss

We loved our sunrise bike down the mountain, which ended up only being the van ride (which they reimbursed us for the difference). There were wind advisories the day we went up and they advised that it was not safe to ride down and well I’m not a super confident rider so I was a little anxious about the ride since it was wet and windy. The sunrise was beautiful with some good clouds and it was super cold and windy. We were there just between when hurricanes Madeleine and Lester were around the islands so there wasn’t anything to do about the weather. We got a lot of great shots of the sunrise and enjoyed the guided tour up the mountain. About halfway down the entire other van (10ish people) and half of ours (5 people) decided to go ahead and bike down, but we opted to just ride in the van. The wind wasn’t that great at this point and we were beyond some of the really curvy parts. We met some of the others back at the shop and they said they really enjoyed the ride and it wasn’t too windy from the point where they started. We enjoyed the drive even without the cycling and got a some good recommendations from Jacob for restaurants in Paia to eat at when we got back to the shop. They processed the refund quickly and it was back on my card before I got home. Loved our tour guide, Jacob, who had just started with them. Highly recommend these guys!

“Great ride down the mountain ” 5-Stars TripAdvisor

rebbie

We did the 9:00 am summit-tour and it was a great experience. We were shuttled up by Remy, who is an awesome entertainer and told us everything there is to know about the route down and the island of Maui. Thank you!

Sadly the weather was rather bad at the summit. It was windy and rainy. We stopped twice, at the summit and at the small visitor-center at the crater-rim. Because of the clouds one couldn’t enjoy the spectacular views, so we didn’t stay very long and Remy brought us a little further down to the point where the ride begins. The ride was very easy, we only had to pedal up once, the rest is downhill and we had to hold on to our brakes quite a lot. It stopped raining, when we took off and the sun came out halfway down the mountain. We had some really spectacular views and took a lot of pictures. This was a really unforgettable experience!
