What a great experience!
Organized very well, yet it never felt constrained or rushed. The ride up was easy and enjoyable. The roll down was as challenging as you wanted to make it and fun all the way. We did the Express ride (from ~6500 feet). Next time I’m on this island, I’ll definitely do the longer ride. Highly recommend!

This was our 3rd time doing the express tour and it was great again. The bikes were great and our guide Austin was very helpful and informative. Always enjoy stopping at the Kula market for a sandwich and drink. Got a little wet this time after lunch, but that just added to the excitement! Glad we took the rain coats that were provided.

Fun and Informative
My wife and I did the express ride last week. The whole process was smooth, from getting equipment to the ride up. Our driver (Fred) gave a great talk of the region and solid advice of how to attack the ride. I would definitely book these guys again!
