Ever experienced a vacation cycling Maui or mountain biking the trails of Haleakala? We like all road and mountain biking, regardless it being mountain biking on West Maui in the abandoned cane fields, a crazed Haleakala bike ride down the Skyline trail or other mountain bike rides from distant parts of the world!
