THE FINEST EQUIPMENT

We are proud to offer top-of-the-line biking equipment to our guests!  Riders are equipped with KONA® mountain bikes: Designed for downhill biking with hydraulic disc brakes, Dakine® backpacks, Helly Hansen® rain gear, and Bell® Helmets.  You don’t have to be a pro at biking, you just need to know how to use hand brakes. Ride safely and maintain your own comfortable pace coming down the mountain.


You will be descending from 6,500ft. to sea level, but that ride down is spread out amongst 23 miles. There are also switchbacks at the higher elevations resulting in a constant downhill but not extremely steep ride. Do not break too hard. (The average grade of the route is 5%)

 

Know Before You Go

Haleakala is a 10,000 ft volcano and as you bike the distance of up to 23 miles, you will experience incredible views, a fascinating history, and underappreciated culture. However, you are also riding in unfamiliar territory, through unpredictable weather, on rental bicycles, and on paved public roadways.

Elements to be Aware of on Bike Ride:

Some elements that you need to be aware of may include but are not limited to the following:

Curving/winding paved roads with many 180 degree turns
Steep inclines and declines
Road reflectors, guardrails, and pylons in place for cars, not for bicycles
Roadway debris
Varying climate including hot and cold temperatures, dry and wet weather, and high altitude
Vehicular traffic – private and commercial
