Downhill Bicycle Tour Safety Stand Down Documents

The National Park Service announced on March 18, 2008 that the moratorium of commercial downhill bicycle rides in Haleakala National Park will continue pending a full evaluation of all impacts from the activity in the park’s Commercial Services Plan (CSP). Tour companies will be allowed to enter the park as a van tour, but not launch bicycle inside the park.



The stand down, originally implemented October 10, 2007, following a bicycle tour client fatality within the park, called for a professional safety analysis to be followed by a Board of Review. Below is all the documentation on this process:
