Safety Stand Down Documentation: Bicycle Tours

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:
