Ride down the slope of Haleakala during sunrise on this self-paced cycling tour. After meeting your group in the predawn, you'll be driven to the top of the mountain and given an introduction to the area. Embarking on this ambitious adventure on your own may be daunting, but you'll have a guide to answer all your questions and give a narrated tour of the route. Cycle at your own pace; there's no need to keep up with a group so the tour can be as adventurous or as relaxed as you like.
Use of bicycle and helmet means no need to lug your own gear
Introductory narrative of the route down Haleakala from a guide
My family and I took the self guided tour starting at 4:30am. There was no microphone in the van, so my family, who was sitting in the back of the vehicle, couldn’t hear the instructions about the course directions back to base. Our group of 7 was separated into 2 parties with all members lost. The “guides” denied my request to pick us up, stating they were waiting for the next tour. The guides were at the base when we finally arrived. Recommendations for the tour company: microphones in vans, do not offer self guided options for sunrise tours.
We originally opted for a self paced tour, however after speaking with guides and explaining my many fears, it was recommended we take the guided tour and was much safer. I was the first in the peloton and the guide coached me around and down each and every turn of the way. We had fun and enjoyed our day. It was worth getting out of bed at 2:30 am. We paid the tour guide to pick us up outside the pier to avoid calling an Uber for 3:00 am.
We were under the impression we'd be able to see the sunrise from the top of the summit, however we were taken to a place that was 2000ft down from the summit. So, not only could we not see the sunrise due to the trees and the sun being on the other side of the mountain but the guy engaged us in a long speech with our backs turned away from what little bit of the sunrise we could see.
Hey gang, evidently I didn't read the fine print. Fact, you see no sunrise on the bike. Dropped off at 6500 feet outside the park, wrong side of the mountain to see the sun come up. Not sure how it's called such a tour other than the fact you get up at 3:00am to find a little shop in the dark, and get shuttled 1/2 way up. Tour guide is enthusiastic if you want a guided tour. Condition of the bikes, scary at speed..shake, rattle, and roll. (it is all downhill.) We completed our ride at 7:30am, returned to a shop that no one was at. Dropped the bikes, helmets, and hung a jacket on the door. All fine if you just want a bike ride.. Evidently only 140 people are permitted to the summit daily (or so we were told for the sunrise)... I turned around and drove my rental car to the summit for the view I thought we were paying for... Live and learn, we were not alone in our dissatisfaction.
