Bicycle Tours Moratorium to Continue at Haleakala National Park

HALEAKALA NATIONAL PARK (KHNL) -- The moratorium of commercial downhill bicycle rides at five bicycle tour companies in Haleakala National Park will continue.

The National Park Service says the stand down remains in effect pending a full evaluation of all impacts from the activity in the park's Commercial Services Plan.

The stand down was implemented in October 2007 following a bicycle tour fatality.

The tour companies will be allowed to conduct van tours while the NPS completes its evaluation.
