The Haleakala Bike Company was the first major company to offer "free style" bike trips down the mountain. What this means is that they will drive you up to the top of the mountain to visit the summit, most notably for sunrise, and then carry you down to the boundary of the national park at about the 6500' level and set you loose on your own to find your way back to the company headquarters near the ocean at its base in Haiku. This allows you the freedom to travel at your own pace and stop exactly where you want to stop on your own. You will be self-regulated on these tours so you will have to make certain you mind the road signs and are careful not to interfere with traffic flow up and down the mountain by automobiles.
The Haleakala Bike Company offers bike tours down the mountain of Haleakala. Most bike tours are strictly 'guided' but the tours offered by the Haleakala Bike Company are all 'unguided' in the sense that you will be enjoying the trip down the mountain at your own pace and without a group.
