Your adventure will begin with a comfortable van ride up to the 6,500 foot elevation of Mount Haleakala. As your guide points out Maui highlights from a panoramic 100-mile bicoastal view, you can gaze at Maui's green central valley, the blue Pacific Ocean, West Maui Mountains and the neighboring islands of Lanai, Molokai, Molokini and Kaho'olawe. The bike journey starts at an elevation of 6,500 feet. Then following your guide, you'll gently bike down the 21 switchbacks on the western slopes of the world's largest resting volcano as your escort van driver follows for your safety. You are welcome to ride in the escort van at any time. Along the way there will be photo stops to capture your Maui moments. You'll visit the Sunrise Market and Protea Flower Farm where you can purchase exotic flowers as well as local foods, sandwiches, salads and beverages. Enjoy Maui's beautiful landscapes as you bike through some of the most unique parts of Maui. You'll love to coast through eucalyptus forests, glide past the colorful lavender farms in Kula, and travel along jacaranda tree-lined roadways. Finally take a safari van tour from Pukalani to the sea while receiving information and history of Maui's sugarcane and pineapple plantation days. This Maui Downhill Bicycle Adventure will truly be an unforgettable experience.

Customer Reviews for Maui Downhill Bicycle Adventure
The views riding down Mt. Haleakala were wonderful. You don't hardly pedal and you're breaking 90% of the time. Equipment was great, bike seats comfortble and helmets secure. Difficult to look at the beauty and keep your eyes on the road but there were several stopping points to view and take pictures. Guides were very knowlegeable about the island and safety was their main concern. Once in a liefetime opportunity. DO IT!

The experience of riding a 40 lb bike downhill was spectacular. The views are amazing There are 29 curves and you travel so fast you feel as though you are flying. Thank you Marc and Ace for the wonderful experience.
The company supporting this adventure was very professional. They were very knowledgeable regarding the island and volcano and were customer centric regarding the bike ride. The sunrise was a once in a lifetime vision (or not many in a lifetime) and the ride down was very beautiful. I can highly recommend thsi excursion.
