The holiday experiences of cycling in Cuba are best enjoyed at an unhurried pace, where you cycle tour amongst the villages and the rural countryside with time to stop, chat and relax. To make this happen one feature of our cycle tour is that we’ve combined careful cycling research with expert local knowledge from our Cuban cycle guides, to plan a cycling holiday that takes in the best of Cuba without many vehicle transfers.
The Cuban countryside we cycle through on this holiday is incredibly varied – cycling amongst the famous limestone karsts or “mogotes” of the Viñales Valley; touring the farming villages, and fruit selling co-operatives of the west; taking a relaxed cycle through fields of tobacco crops that make Cuba's world famous cigars; cycling high into the pristine rainforests of the Escambray Mountains; simply kicking back and enjoying a beachside mohito and an afternoon swim after cycling to the golden sands of Cuba’s Ancon peninsula.
We also cycle through some landmark towns – cycling along the cobbled streets of Trinidad past terracotta tiled homes; winding through the ornate but crumbling Spanish houses in seldom cycled areas of Havana’s old town, or spinning through Vinales, the cultural and musical centre in the west where sounds of salsa pour from every door!
With over 12 years of dedicated cycle research (and a great many cycling visits, of course!), working closely with our friends and cycle guides in Cuba, we’re sure this cycling tour of Cuba will delight and excite you.
