Now, more than ever, we want to help and encourage you to enjoy our downhill bike ride with total peace of mind, as well as with all our road bike, mountain bike, and cruiser rentals. We want to reassure our guests that we are following guidelines recommended by Hawaii State & the Center for Disease Control for protective measures against COVID-19. The health and safety of our passengers and staff are our top priority.

MSBC Covid-19 Safety and Prevention Measures:


It is mandatory for all guests to wear a mask inside our bike shop, inside our vans & during your bike fitting. If a guest has forgotten their mask, one will be provided by our team. Our team will always be wearing a mask.

No bandanas, buffs, t-shirts, or face shields only.

Social Distancing

Bike Tour van capacity will be reduced by 65% to ensure additional safety. Inside the bike shop guests will need to keep 6ft. distance from one another and we will be limiting the amount of guests in the shop at a time. Drivers will assist customers when assistance is needed with their bikes & helmets, keeping distance.

Hand Hygiene

There is hand sanitizer available for passengers in the bike shop and inside the vans. At our shop we also have a sink for guests to wash their hands. Our team will be sanitizing their hands frequently and/or wearing gloves.

Gear Disinfection

All of the gear at MSBC will be thoroughly disinfected with EPA certified cleaners after every use. Helmets & backpacks receive an extra step with a UV disinfectant wand. Clothes & gloves will be washed after each use. All gear will be put in a 3-day quarantine. All bikes will be thoroughly disinfected. 

Vehicle Disinfection

Drivers will disinfect the vehicle in between every service by wiping down door handles, seatbelts, armrests, window buttons and other areas with EPA certified cleaners.

Please keep your mask on at all times. Please be careful if you have to cough or sneeze.

Air Conditioning

Open windows are the preferred option along with the air conditioning to be switched on. The AC will be set to bring clear air into the vehicle, not on the re-cycle mode.
