PHIL’S BIO

Phil Feliciano Director Of OperationsPhil Feliciano, Local Boy. Started riding bikes around Oahu I n the 60’s as a teenager, and brought his Bike to Maui and begged his Grandfather to take him up to Haleakala so he could coast on down.

Later in 1983, he got started in the downhill industry leading groups from the summit to the sea. After thousands of successful tours he decided to Open Cruiser Phil’s Volcano Riders in 1998. Cruiser Phil’s quickly became the Star of the industry. After 20 years in business he was able to merge into Bike Maui forming the most complete bicycle tour company, offering both the Cruiser Phil’s Guided tours and Bike Maui’s self-guided tours.

Wonderful sunrise and bike ride!

Derek and Trevor were outstanding! I went on this ride with my 18 yo, 16 yo and 14 yo kids. We met the van at 2 am which is no easy task with teens. They loved the trip! Wonderful sunrise. Derek and Trevor were informative and funny. Bike ride was amazing. Kids and I are thrilled. Finish off with breakfast at Cafe Mambo. It was wonderful!

Still the best ride 17 years later

We took our teenage girls on this ride — they were very skeptical … and they loved it!! I will say I wasn’t super impressed with our guide. But it’s not a hard excursion.

Great way to start the vacation

1:30 am pickup time from Kaanipalli tough to swallow initially but worth getting up early, and hey it’s 6hrs behind anyway. Middle of August and still really cold and windy at the top of the crater…wear more clothes than you think. Bike ride down was not strenuous at all, thrill level a 4/10, accommodated people of different levels, scenic ride through eucalyptus groves and a fun guide (we had Drew). 2 activities in one is pretty good value!

Best sunrise ever

Great way to start the day! Bill, our driver and Trey, our tour guide were both excellent! Bill was quite the expert on so many details of the sites. Trey had a great sense of humor and ensured everyone’s safety on the bike ride. We highly recommend this great tour!

Great ride

We had a great ride down the mountain with Cruiser Phil’s. Our guide Trevor did a really good job and was a lot of fun. Very safe ride with very little pedaling. Great scenery. Lots of stops.
