$148.80 BOOK NOW
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.

Horrible company. Got there 10 minutes before 5am. No one there. Parking lot closed. Called left voicemail. No one responded. Waited a total of 30 minutes before driving to park. Last day of our vacation. Was looking forward to this ride. This company should go out of business
This was my first experience doing a bike ride down the mountain! The ride was fantastic, the guides were informative about the island and I enjoyed the stop for lunch! Unfortunately, the ride back to our hotel was a nightmare. The driver was hauling butt, going 70+ MPH. The vans were a little rundown...no AC vents worked in the back, all check engine lights were on, etc. I may choose another company in the future.
So fun! I was nervous when reading the reviews on here but I am so happy we went! It was so a great experience!
Our van driver, John, was very helpful and made sure we had everything. He loaned us better backpacks and gave us fresh water. He was informative and took the time to make sure we were ready. I love this place and will use them next time.
Stay away. This is the second Haleakala tour I've done - first one with Bike Maui and it was superb - well-organized, great equipment, etc. Not the case with this outfit. We showed up at 7am (as instructed in our confirmation), only to find no one there. After multiple calls, someone finally answered and told us that our guide would be back in 30-45 minutes, and that we should "go get coffee somewhere." Breakfast was a basket of granola bars and a keurig coffee maker. No real store, just a shed and a porta-potty (yes, an actual porta-potty). Finally got on the road just before 8am. Guide drove like crazy up the mountain and made us all queasy, although he seemed nice enough. Biggest issue was the equipment - old, squeaky, rickety single-speed bikes (which, by the way, suck for the few small uphill sections). Was definitely concerned about safety seeing these bikes. Helmets seemed old and dirty. Didn't see a soul when we returned the bikes. Thought I'd save some money by using this place, but I won't make that mistake again.
