We stopped at a small lunch counter for a sandwich and drink and while there we took a walk around their nice garden which included a large Avocado Tree full of ripe fruit. There was almost no peddling the entire way down and the vans picked us up in the valley bellow. We plan to do this again on our next trip to Maui and I recommend you try it as well.

Once at the starting area for the bike tour at the entrance to Haleakala National Park, we were fitted to our 24 speed comfort bikes and helmets. If it has been awhile since you have ridden a bike there is an area there for you to practice before you take off.
We were sent off in small groups and allowed to go whatever speed we were comfortable going, and to stop and enjoy the views whenever we wanted to. Wow, you can get going fast biking down a volcano!! The brakes were working well, though, so the ride was exhilarating! The van is close behind, so if there were any problems, Marc would be there soon to help out.
We rode by the Haleakala Ranch founded by the missionary’s descendents, eucalyptus tree woods, and pasture land. It was nice to be able to stop and go as we pleased. We took lots of pictures on the way down.
We ended the 33 mile ride with a deli-style lunch at the Tedeschi Winery. It is the only winery in Hawaii. The grounds of the winery were pretty, and we just had to try the pineapple wine!!
