Tour does not enter Haleakala National Park. Due to the new commercial vehicle codes January 1st 2018. Maui Mountain Cruisers takes you to the Park Entrance at 6500 feet where you will watch the sunrise and begin your guided bike tour down the slopes of Haleakala.
The Sunrise bike tour is the signature Maui bike ride for Maui Mountain Cruisers. Imagine the total darkness of night; then a sliver of light to the east transforming the sky into a brilliant array of orange, yellow and red spread across the mountain. Only Mother Nature can provide such a spectacular dawn of a new day. With its silent beauty, sunrise on Haleakala ushers in the dawn and the beginning of your adventure of a lifetime. After the sun rises your bike tour begins at the park entrance. Once your group begins biking down the mountain, it’s all downhill with very little pedaling. Your journey down Haleakala will take you through the rolling hills of Upcountry passing through the historical cowboy town of Makawao eventually ending in Paia. 38 miles of biking down a volcano.
Don’t feel like waking up at 2:00am to see the sunrise from Haleakala? This Maui Mountain Cruisers Day Bike Ride allows you to sleep in and still see the volcano and enjoy the bike ride down the volcano. Maui Mountain Cruisers Day Bike Ride will take you on a thrilling adventure riding a bike from Haleakala to the sea on the scenic this day tour. Maui Mountain Cruisers take you on a Maui adventure biking down Haleakala towards the sea on this scenic Maui bike ride with their day tour. It’s the same basic tour as the sunrise, minus the sunrise. Your Maui bike tour usually begins about with a morning hotel pick-up and ride up to Haleakala National Park entrance. You’ll begin your bike down the volcano around 7,000′ with crystal clear views of the coast far below. You’ll wind through the rolling hills of Upcountry Maui, passing through the historical town of Makawao with its colorful storefronts where time seems to stand still. As your journey continues, you’ll ride down Baldwin Avenue to Paia. Both sides of the road are a testament to the decline of the agriculture industry on Maui with fallow fields of sugar cane lining the road. The views are staggering, peaceful and alluring.
Mountain Cruises also provides all the gear including helmets, gloves and Gortex fleece rain suit.
Maui Mountain Cruisers uses Workman and Schwinn cruiser style bicycles. They are designed for a comfortable riding experience with the big fat wide seats. The braking system uses “Ultra brakes” that are hand operated. They are like the hydraulic brakes in your car. From time to time we get questions regarding the guidelines the bike companies have in place as policies. In many cases children under 12 years old are better at riding a bike than their parents. It’s the insurance company that underwrites the policy for the bike company that sets the policies, not the bike company.

I would recommend this adventure to anyone. Our tour guide Kevin was fantastic so many wonderful stories and knowledge of the area. He made me and my sister's feel like family I will always cherish the memories made going up and down the valcono. Thank you so much!
Kevin was a fantastic tour guide, and the bike ride was a lot of fun. The scenery is amazing!
Well if you want to miss the beautiful sunshine yes choose this place. Don’t waste your money and time
I've been to Maui 10 times in The past 25 years and this was my most disappointing experience. I spent close to $1000 for my family to get the Haleakala sunrise experience. Warning. This is not a Haleakala sunrise experience. You do not go to the park, you do not see the sunrise over Haleakala you don't get anywhere close to the park. Be careful getting lured into this tour. If you are looking to experience the sunrise over Haleakala, this is not the tour. I've been to the top of Haleakala and it was awesome. Unfortunately, this tour was a joke. The ads you read make you think you are going to see the sunrise over Haleakala, if you've never been to the top, they my be able to fool you. If you have ever been to the top, you will know the difference. Such a disappointment! Learn from my mistake. Find a tour that takes you to top of Haleakala ~10,000 feet and into the park.
Kevin and John do a great tour with some special touches. Having said that, it's important to note that this tour does not go to the summit. They bring you to a lookout point about 9 miles down from the summit to start the bike ride. The views are still beautiful and it did not feel as bone chilling cold as it did when we went to summit our last trip. The bikes and helmets and jackets were adequate, not great. There was talk of a (non-hosted) breakfast stop but did not happen. For the money, Mountainriders seems like a better deal. They go to the summit with better equipment and gear for about $35 less per person if you book online, and they include pickup at your hotel/resort. Again, Kevin does a great job, but I think this tour is overpriced vis-a-vis the competition.
