Mahalo For the reviews!
One of the best parts of our trip! The weather was perfect and it was so cool to see how you traveled through different ecosystems as you made your way down the mtn. Our guide was a native and was so helpful in detailing places to stop as well as giving a history of the area!
They provided bikes, helmets, rain jacket & pants (in case you needed them), a backpack (with bike locks & a map), and a guided van ride up the mtn. 10/10 would recommend!
Remy gave us a great safety briefing before piling everyone in the van and starting off up the hill. On the ride up he pointed out some nice places to stop at in historic Makawao, shared some entertaining local trivia, and generally made us all feel at home.
The actual ride down was great. The single speed mountain bikes easily went 30mph and had great brakes, but didn’t encourage us to go dangerously fast. We got a tasty lunch at the Italian place in Makawao and checked out some trinket stores. “Agony Hill” was easily dealt with, and we made it back to the shop without incident.
Ah-mazing Downhill Cruise on Haleakala! I have lived on Maui for 10 years and have never biked down Haleakala. I finally had the opportunity to bike down Haleakala this week, it was a GAME CHANGER! I was welcomed by Crystal and Jeff who turned out to be the new owners. They both have had quite the track record and continue to of biking all over the world which made me see their passion for Maui Sunriders more apparent. Their employees Rocco and Remy made the experience even more exquisite. I rode in Remy’s van and I learned more about Maui on the 45 min van ride up than I have in a year!! Remy spirit is vivacious and super attentive to any of your needs and questions. Once we arrived at the dropzone, we were on our way down Haleakala. What an insane perspective it was being on a bike versus a car. I could go into detail of how I felt cruising down but I will let you experience that feeling mentally and physically on your own!! Thank you Maui Sun Riders for providing a new love for downhill biking. I highly recommend to locals and visitors alike!!! ps. You have the whole day to cruise around on your bike, take advantage of all the great shopping and good eats along the way!
This is by far the best tour on the island!!! They are so nice and helpful! There are other bike tours but this is truly the best! All their equipment and bikes are top notch! Everything is clean and new, not like other rental places. Try it! You will love it!
If you’re considering doing a downhill bike ride absolutely use these guys. They are super professional, they put safety first and they give you the low-down honest scoop on the bike ride and sunrise thing. We did the self-guided ride down from the entrance to Haleakala and it was an amazing morning. No crowds, no schedule, perfect weather and had he Maui Sunriders just a phone call away.
An absolutely terrific experience.
And if you’re worried or thinking of not doing this – don’t. We are an older couple in our later 50’s and had no problems and just a great time.
We are so thankful we chose Maui Sunriders! Remy provided us with a great background tour up the mountain and we enjoyed riding down at our own pace. You really don’t need to peDal, and if you think you can’t handle it, just know you can do it. It’s a must when you’re in Maui. I would do it again and again.
Make sure you wear your rain gear as the weather can change. It was pouring rain down the mountain and we were thankful we were protected with the rain gear provided by Maui Sunriders. The rain eventually cleared up. We seen chickens, roosters, and horses along the way which was nice. The smell of eucalyptus along the ride was beautiful. Just know you can’t go wrong with this ride and make sure you stop for some nachos at Polli’s Cantina in Paia before you turn in your bike.
Amazing ride and amazing service. Amazing ride and the people that work there are really fun, funny. I recommend for friends and family you see a lot of things. Things that you really don’t get to see in a car so I recommend.
