Volcano Bombing outlawed

volcano-bombing

The National Park Service suspended commercial bike tours from the peak of Haleakala down the side of the volcano after the third fatal accident this year. It’s still open to riders who want to shuttle their bikes to the top of the mountain in their rented Seabring convertible, but they’ll have to supply their own brightly colored jumpsuits and futuristic white helmets. These volcano-proof suits are probably causing all the problems—pants getting stuck in chains, people putting on helmets backwards. It might be time to update the equipment, these people look like 1970’s mountain bike racers who need to repack their hubs halfway down.
