A family e-bike ride might just be one of the most memorable experiences from your Maui vacation. It’s a unique way to enjoy Maui’s beauty, while getting exercise, avoiding traffic and having fun!
The electric bike makes it very easy to stay together, even among different skill and fitness levels. Faster and stronger riders can simply use a lower level of pedal assistance. Plus, we have cargo bikes to transport small children, as well as tandem bikes that make it even easier to ride with a buddy.
The 14-mile ride to and from Launiupoko Beach is the longer of our two self-guided tour options and you should plan on spending at least 4 hours from start to finish. If you wish to do a shorter 2-hour tour, we recommend the 3 mile Canoe Beach Family Fun Day.
GETTING TO AND FROM RIDESMART MAUI BIKE SHOP:
Head southbound from RideSmart Maui through Ka’anapali. You’ll soon merge on to a gorgeous bike path that runs along the coast. Kaanapali has a lot to offer, and it’s worth making a stop now or on your return trip.

In 1.3 miles, you’ll reach Hanakao’o Beach Park (Canoe Beach). If you are doing the 2-hour self guided tour, this is where you will turn around after enjoying swimming, snorkeling and kayaking!
Continue riding approximately for 2.5 miles until you reach the quaint town of Lahaina! This is a great spot to stop for a bite to eat, or enjoy the numerous tour attractions available. Some highlights include:
Continue venturing south towards Launiupoko until you reach the beach park. Now you get to soak up the sun, cool off in the crystal clear waters and enjoy some well-deserved relaxation before your ride back to Kaanapali.
You may wish to enjoy one of the family-friendly attractions on the way to or from the beach park. If you plan to do one of these, be sure to book a full-day tour so you are not rushed. We recommend doing some research in advance to make sure the tour is open during the day and times you plan to visit, and make reservations if possible. The summer months are busy on Maui and tours can fill up in advance.
Round trip distance from rental shop: 14 miles
