Thank you so much for checking out Maui Bombers…the newest company to join the downhill guided Maui Bike Tours on Haleakala volcano in beautiful Maui. Not only are we the newest, but also the most innovative. My name is Matthew, but most call me Matt. I created Maui Bombers with the knowledge of 5 years experience in the industry. As owner/operator I will personally be guiding each and every Maui Bomber – Maui Bike Tour , to ensure the most fantastic experience . More about me in a moment. Let me first explain a little bit about the guided downhill Maui bike tours on Haleakala. This activity started over 30 years ago and is one of the most popular activities on Maui. Millions of visitors have experienced the thrill of coasting downhill on sloping scenic road down Haleakala, through beautiful pastures, quaint little towns, with unmatched views. How the Maui guided downhill bike tour works is quite simple. We are allowed to bike in the center of the downbound lane…just like a car. The cruise leader leads the way, and the bikers follow him or her, single file, and the company van follows the group…protecting the group from the downbound traffic. When cars approach the van, the driver radios to the cruise leader, then he or she will lead the group to the bike lane /shoulder. The group bikes there as the van pulls over to let the traffic pass. Once all the cars are past the group, the driver takes the road, creating another block,radios the cruise leader all is clear, then the cruise leader guides the group back into the road. So, the bikers never have to worry about traffic. It really is an awesome way to get down the volcano. The 6 other guided Maui bike tour companies all use this system. They also all use single speed beach cruiser bikes, and guide down up to 13 bikers at a time.
