during his trip to Maui Island, Hawaii. Get on a ride with him down the Haleakala volcano and on the steepest tracks of the island.The lunar scenery of the top of the Haleakala volcano (3000m) is a perfect playground for a motivated rider. Raw slopes of volcanic rocks that drop into the ocean.Red dirt and Eucalyptus forest at the Makawao Bike Park. One of the most famous spots of the local scene with its handmade tracks easily accessible from the valley.With a little bit of imagination you can spice up your rides up in Makawao forest. New transfers, enduro backflips…The Mamane trail, after the Skyline ridge trail on top of the Haleakala Volcano. An endless downhill of more than 3000m elevation and completely different landscapes along the way.
Roots field on the Redwood Trail, in Polipoli Park, the other official bike park of the Island. Here when we talk about the bike park we mean an area where riding a bike is legal, not a chairlift assisted bike park. There are a lot of restrictions in Maui, make sure it is ok to ride a bike before starting your ride to avoid any surprises.We got some surfing in again on Maui Island. Not always the most successful sessions but you can’t not surf when Hawaii right?Landscape was a little bit more wild up North especially near Waihee ridge trail. A natural and steep trail along cliffs and waterfalls.
