Double Switchbacks Express

Double Switchbacks Express

This is an unguided tour that doubles the most exhilarating portion of Haleakala…the switchbacks at 6700’ elevation. You ride all downhill through dozens of switchbacks, at your own pace with relatively no traffic to deal with. We wait for you at the end of the switchbacks, then load up the bikes and bring you back up to the beginning. Then we unleash you to do it again, which you will love even more the second time down!!
