Haleakala Bike Co.
This company lets adventurers create a trip. With four options to choose from, you tailor your own excursion to your tastes. Provide your own transportation up the mighty Haleakala Crater (bike racks will be supplied), and you can ride down the crater at your leisure for a fee. Or, ride up in the courtesy van and get the "sunrise special," which includes a tour of Haleakala National Park. No guides—you are on your own.
This tour was awesome. Riding down Haleakala at your own pace is the way to go. no being rushed down byt a big group, no being herded like sheep. We did it the way we wanted to. We did end up getting a flat, i guess some broken glass ont he side of the road. We called up the office, and they sent a replacement bike up right away. I don't know what that other review is talking about...there's no way this group will tell somone they are on their own in that matter. You are on your own for the bike ride, but if you do need assistance of course they will be there. Great time, great bikes, great staff, great fun! highly recomended.
good trip even though the driver has lame jokes and somewhat inappropriately and repeatedly asks for tips. you really need to be an experienced biker as it is very steep and i would not recommend the trip for children or the elderly
I enjoyed the bus driver's running commentary and lame jokes on the drive up, I enjoyed the sunrise at the top of Haleakala, and I really enjoyed all but about 20-30 seconds of my ride down. After getting on the bike, I made a few stops and took some pictures. Then all of a sudden my brakes died on me, and I started picking up speed. I completely lost my brakes for 20-30 seconds while heading downhill into a turn. I eventually got stopped okay, but it was a harrowing experience. The guy came and replaced the bike for me and he said he'd tell the office and see about getting me a free t-shirt or something to try to take care of me and make up for it. He could tell the brakes weren't in the best of condition. When I got to the office, the guy (the bus driver from the morning) acted like it was entirely my fault that I was on a bike with no brakes when he personally gave the bike to me. The brakes slowed the bike when I wanted them to and I stopped the bike where I wanted it to, so I figured I was good to go. I'm by no means an experience biker. What really got me was the attitude that I got at the store and the stance that it was all my fault that I had almost killed myself on a company bike which had been poorly maintained. I guess at Haleakala Bike Company the spirit of aloha is only skin deep.
BTW, I didn't get a refund or even a t-shirt for almost dying on a poorly maintained Haleakala Bike Co. bike.
I felt the guide abandoned us at the 6500' level.He was more interested in getting down the mountain to go surfing. We had people get injured with no one there to provide assistance. When we inquired about insurance the operator told us,"your on your own, you rented the bikes, I don't provide tours. If this was not a tour why was it sold as the summit tour. Small
