Cycling Tour Of Cuba

A remarkable cycle journey across Cuba that explores the island's revolutionary history, diverse landscapes and its unique brand of Caribbean culture. Riding on extremely quiet roads, this moderate to challenging tour discovers rich colonial heritage, tropical coastlines, jungle-clad mountains and historic sites such as the Bay of Pigs and Che Guevara's Mausoleum. In colonial Trinidad we go local and stay in privately run Casas Particulares.

Tour Highlights

  • Cycle Cuba - With very little traffic this is the ideal way to see the island
  • Havana Vieja (Havana Old Town) - Explore this atmospheric UNESCO Heritage Site
  • Sierra Maestra coastal road - Ride the stunning mountainous coastline from Marea Portillo to Chivirico
  • Casas Particulares - Stay in locally-owned and run private homestays in the heart of colonial Trinidad
  • Spanish Colonial Towns - Including the beautiful original founding towns of Trinidad, Remedios and Baracoa
  • Historical Sites - Cycle beside the infamous 'Bay of Pigs'; visit Che Guevara's monument in Santa Clara

Cycling Information
On this tour we cycle 691 km over twelve days (an average of 58 km per day). Three of the cycling days are circular and therefore optional. There is very little traffic outside of urban centres in Cuba which helps make cycling conditions perfect. Days 7, 9 and 11 are amongst the most epic rides possible in Cuba. The terrain is often undulating, and on tarmac which can be in very poor condition in places requiring good control of the bike. There are several rides with steeper climbs. A support vehicle is available throughout the tour except on the three circular/optional rides. We have graded the route as moderate to challenging.
Included Bike
24 or 27 gear Conor Avenue or Stevens Galant SX hybrid bikes with front suspension
