Cycling Holidays & Cycling Tours in Cuba
Cycling in Cuba is a great joy: outside of Havana, the roads are blessedly free of cars and the island has a great deal of flat terrain for easy biking. Lots of Cubans cycle too. They might consider you to be a mad yuma (foreigner) for biking when you could be cruising the island in a modern vehicle, but they will be good-humoured and charming. It also gives you a chance to really get off the beaten track and glimpse the old-fashioned rural life of Cuba.
With few operations renting decent bikes in Cuba, and fewer outfits still to be found on the road for parts, it’s almost always best to bring your own wheels. Organised tours are also recommended, as the logistics of traveling through Cuba still make it a little difficult for independent bike touring: some of these are able to provide decent bikes, and even a travelling mechanic to accompany you in case of disaster.
