Overview

If you like to travel at your pace, then this Maui Express Bike Tour of Haleakala volcano is an option for independent travelers.

Stop at protea farms, get a cup of coffee, and wander through local shops, before finishing either at the bike tour office or down on the beach in Paia. Tours check in at 7:30am, and conclude by 2:30pm.
  • Bike independently down Haleakala volcano
  • Explore Upcountry at your own pace
  • Ride all the way to the beach in Paia

Mountain Riders is such a great outfit for downhill bike tours! We came for our honeymoon and everyone was very warm & welcoming. Our operator was extremely safe & even stopped a few times on our trek downhill to take pictures of us on the mountainside! I ended up forgetting one of my favorite sweatshirts in the van and one of the owners gave it to a colleague so I could pick it up the next day. Would recommend 10/10. THANK YOU!

Joe was amazing, the course was fast & beautiful. Be careful because it is very easy to get lost but Joe is right there to pick you up!! We got lost & before we could call him, he was already there!! So we never made it back on our town but we had an exhilarating, super fun time getting lost!!

Rob was a great guide! He told us great stories about Maui on the way up. At the top he made us feel safe with his safety brief and bike tests. We loved being able to go at our own pace on the way down!

Self-Guided Tour Not Recommended
KaitlynCarlson
, Aug 2021
Highly do not recommend the self-guided tour. You’ll have a better experience both emotionally and financially if you just rent your own bike locally. The bikes themselves are mediocre single-gear that lack upkeep. The guide assigned to my tour left me sitting at a bus stop for 45 minutes after requesting a ride. He initially stated it was a short ride back and I could make it on my own. If you don't want to risk severe dehydration, pick another tour.

We are sorry Kaitlyn Carlson is dissatisfied with her ride. For staters this tour is an economically affordable tour which costs less than a bike rental on Maui and includes the shuttle to the starting point on Haleakala. Secondly, we provide water to ALL of our customers throughout the tours. Hydration is very important. Thirdly, bikes are maintained daily, we employ a full time bicycle mechanic and the bikes are designed for the downhill ride. Kaitlyn Carlson was NOT left at a bus stop for 45 minutes, again the tour is Self Guided which means it is at your own pace. Directions were given to all the riders, including her three brothers in her party, who did not have any problems with directions and finished the ride on their own. Kaitlyn Carlson chose to stop at a point along the route, which was close to the ending point. The driver informed her of the option to finish the ride if she wanted to it was a short distance from where she was to the end. She chose to stop where she did. In turn the driver picked her up as soon as she requested, it was a short 10 minute wait. She chose to stop where she did. Perhaps she should have either gone on a shorter ride or a guided tour. We wish Kaitlyn Carlson the best.

All in all a 3.6-3.8; first off the bikes were very safe and built specifically for downhill. The company was well coordinated and ready to help. If memory serves they were a cheaper option than some others and that raises my rating to 4+ but that said why I didn’t 5-it… we didn’t go up anywhere near as high as possible. Mark (our driver) talked about not mingling bike confusion routes etc. but that seemed a cop-out — had driven to the peak the day before so was familiar. Was not 26 miles from where we started. He was very thorough about landmark notes and such as well as native insights and info. Worth the $? I would suggest finding the sunrise tour version.

Family fun

Good family experience for my 18yo, 14yo, and 11yo children. Easy ride down without any real steep sections. Only things my youngest complained about were the occasional cars passing and her hands getting sore from gripping the brakes the whole way down. Friendly staff regailed us with stories about what Maui was like when they were children. Glad we did it.

Glad the kids had fun sometimes they would like to go a little quicker but we definitely prefer to concentrate on the safe side of things. so happy you enjoyed your Maui vacation.

Beautiful, easy bike ride down the crater! Wish we had gone up a little higher to see the crater but overall had a great time. Staff was helpful and friendly too.

Our trip was on an almost perfect day. Dress warmly for the top. I Bobby kept us safe and on track as there are only three turns and peddling is next to minimum. The views are spectacular. I must do for almost any age group.

You won’t regret it, exciting, thrilling, breathtaking.

My girlfriend and I had an absolute blast doing this. It’s a pretty thrilling ride down Haleakala, 27 Miles, 7,000 feet elevation change. And to top it off the best Tour company to do it with. They were so warm and welcoming when we arrived. Our tour operator KAULANA, a local Hawaiian himself, was super knowledgeable and shared so many great tidbits about the island, the history and the ecological diversity about everything we passed on the way up. He took the time to make sure we felt comfortable, made sure we were having the time of our lives and was honestly just a super awesome human being that was so down to earth and so nice to get to know. I highly highly recommend this ride. Even preferred it over the sunrise summit ride cuz it was so less crowded and gave my girlfriend more comfort not having to ride next to hundreds of riders and cars zooming past. The views on this ride are unmatchable and the memory you’ll have from doing it will last a lifetime 🤙🏼 Mahalo KAULANA! ~Evan & Sophia San Francisco, CA
