Top Ten Hawaii Adventures

Bike Down Haleakala
By John Penisten

Super views with the wind rushing through your hair: Take on Maui's greatest bicycle adventure, the 38-mile Summit to the Sea ride, from the 10,023-foot summit of Mount Haleakala (House of the Sun) to the beach at Paia town. And hold the effort: On this ride, you have only 400 yards of real pedaling, then you coast the rest. Along the way, you can't miss views of the West Maui Mountains, the central isthmus of Maui, and upcountry ranch lands. Several bike tour outfitters offer this ride, including bike and all equipment, with side trips to other upcountry Maui attractions and sites.
