The Maui bike tour offers one of Mauis greatest activity thrills. Imagine coasting thousands of feet down the slopes of the world's largest dormant volcano on one of the exciting Maui bike rides!
Thousands of Maui bike enthusiasts have experienced this Maui biking adventure since the industry began in 1982. Of all the activities on Maui, the bike Maui ride is the most unique - the Maui bike tour that can't be done anywhere else on Earth.

What is the Best Time of Day to Take a Maui Bike Tour?
Without question the very most popular time of day to take a Maui bike ride down the slopes of Haleakala is for sunrise. The Maui sunrise bike tour has both positives and negatives. By far the most positive aspect of taking this tour is that you will be able to see the spectacular sunrise at the rim of the crater of Haleakala. For many years people have been going up the mountain to view this spectacle on their own anyway, and it is something you would certainly want to see regardless of your taking a Maui bike ride. The colors are unbelievable and the views are forever. The downside of taking one of these Maui sunrise bike tours is, of course, that you have to get up way early to meet the van that picks you up in front of your hotel, and two, that you will be driving up the mountain in the dark and wont be able to see the countryside. The positive side of this downside, if you will, is that if you arrange your Maui Sunrise Bike tour for the first morning you are on island you will in all likelihood be getting up ridiculously early anyway if you are traveling to Maui from the continental United States so you will be able to be using your waking time to its optimum.
The so-called Mid Day Maui Bike Tours will leave anywhere between 8am to early afternoon and will give you the advantage of being able to sleep-in late and to view the scenery both on the way up and down the mountain but of course the big disadvantage is that you will miss the spectacular Haleakala sunrise. Its your call, both Maui bike experiences are great.

What type of Equipment is used on a Maui Bike Ride?
The bikes used on the Maui bike rides down from the crater are invariably bikes that are designed to go downhill in comfort. Since you will not be doing much if any pedaling on these tours there is only one gear on the bike. What you will be doing however is a lot of breaking and so most of these bikes are specially assembled with that in mind. Many of them will have disk brakes similar to a car although special modifications are always occurring from company to company but always with the notion of providing a good braking system on their vehicles. In addition you will be riding in a fully erect position on these bikes for better viewing and the seats are large and are padded so you can further enjoy the Maui bike tour experience.

A Word of Caution regarding your Maui Bike Tour.
The Bike Maui tour experience down Haleakala has been among the most popular tours of any sort on Maui. Literally hundreds of thousands of cyclists have descended the slopes on these exciting bike tours. You must remember however that you are on a moving vehicle that is traveling at speeds generally a bit in excess of 20mph. It is incumbent on you to ride your bike safely. Though there have been relatively few accidents with regard to the overall volume of bike tours that descend the mountain some of the accidents that have happened have been simply disastrous and in fact there have even been some fatalities. Once again you must remember that the movement of your vehicle and how and where you guide it is ultimately up to you. If you feel at any point on the bike ride that you are not up to the task or feel in any way that it is un-safe you are encouraged to stop your bike and enjoy the rest of the ride downhill in the chase van.

There are two types of Maui bike tours:


  • Maui guided bike tours are bike tours you take down the mountain in which you are provided with a guide and a "chase van" that follows your group of bike riders. You always stay with your group and follow the instructions of your bike guides.
  • Maui Free-Style downhill bike tours are tours in which you are given instructions by your guides but then you take off down the mountain on your own and return to the bicycle base yard on your own.
