Haleakala Downhill Bike Tour

Experience the world famous Haleakala Downhill Biking experience on Maui!

Your Guided Haleakala Maui Bike Tour begins when you meet us at the Lower Paia Park on the North Shore of Maui. We will meet you in the beach parking lot and then we begin our ascent up the mountain in our spacious van.

From Paia we will drive directly up the route we will be coming down on the bicycles. This provides us with an opportunity to show you the roadways and points of interest on the ride that you will be biking down.

Once arriving in the upcountry area of Kula we will be stopping at a small market so you will have the opportunity to use the bathroom, eat, take pictures, buy souvenirs, smell the flowers, etc. After we spend a short time at our pit stop in Kula we will continue another few minutes in the van to the starting point. Altogether you will spend less than one hour of your precious vacation time in our van.

We provide all of the necessary clothing for this ride. If you have your own rain gear or jacket, you are more than welcome to bring it along, although layers are usually not necessary.

We will begin our downhill ride outside of Haleakala National Park at 6600 feet above Sea Level. We start above where the other bike tours get started. Which allows us to proudly advertise that we ride the most miles of any bike tour group (25 miles).

During the tour, we will only pedal about 500 yards of uphill on our entire 25 mile bike route. It is a very thrilling, and at the same time, relaxing and enjoyable bike ride.

In Makawao (about 3/4 of the way into the ride) we will be taking a short break (30 minutes) so you will have a chance to explore the town. Maui Easy Riders is the only Tour Company on Maui that offers a tour of this very special town.

Makawao is far from the beaten path of the large crowds of West and South Maui. Makawao is Maui’s Cowboy Town. You will learn the rich history of Makawao from its days as a True Cattle Ranch Town. If the bakery "Komoda Bakery" in Makawao is open and not sold out I will treat you to a Maui famous "donut on a stick".

From Makawao we ride all the way down Baldwin Avenue into the town of Paia ending your ultimate downhill bike ride exactly where you parked your car…at the beach! And sometimes we stop at a church on the last leg of the tour for some additional sight seeing, depending on the group and if they'd like to do so or not.

Cancellation Policy

If you cancel your bike tour within 72 hours of your scheduled tour you will not receive a refund. If you do not show you will not receive a refund. Sorry for this but availability is tricky and we have to be fair ourselves in situations like this.

We do however offer an indefinite credit if you are not refunded, so if something happens and you cannot make it you can use the money you have paid to come with us another time on a bike tour that is scheduled, meaning you'd have to book on a tour that is already schedule to be a "go".

If you cancel your bike tour before 72 hours of your scheduled tour you will receive a full refund with no questions asked.
