Bike Down a Volcano
Maui has the longest downhill bike ride in the world. Downhill bike riding has been a thriving industry for several decades, with several companies organizing complete activity packages, to get you from your hotel to the mountain and back. We like the Maui Downhill company best, they have been going since the beginning in 1984, with a good safety record. Your journey begins with a panoramic sunrise view of Haleakala Crater, in the Haleakala National Park, a once in a lifetime experience. There you will see the volcano and the many pu’u lais that once formed our Island of Maui. After sunrise, coast down from the top of Haleakala Crater at 10,023 ft. to sea level into the original territorial capital of Hawaii, Paia. A 38-mile downhill ride with only 400 yards of peddling.
