Cycling Cuba

Cuba Cycling in August!

5
If you want to see Cuba 'as it is' rather than through a windscreen, cycling is the only way to do it! Each day takes you to a different location to find and experience different aspects of life in Cuba. The cycling side of things isn't too onerous if you are a regular cyclist, averaging 40 to 50 miles a day at most. There were a couple of 'hilly' days, where the total climb was in the region of 2500 to 3000 feet, but most days the rides were fairly flat. A little hill climbing practice may be a good idea if your biggest hill is normally a railway bridge!

Cuba was a fascinating country to visit, and cycling a great way to explore the country. The contrasts between the old and restored buildings was amazing. Finding out about such a different culture was really interesting.

What a fantastic fortnight with new found friends . Although cycling was tough in the heat everyone pulled together and made it through to the exhilarating finishes. Cycling, sun, music, history and friendship, what more could you ask for !

A packed holiday that will keep you busy for the duration. If travelling in the hotter months, please bear this in mind as it makes the cycling worthy of a "Difficult" rating regarding Day 9 in particular!

Really enjoyed the trip and had a fabulous group which added to a memorable time. Coming from a southern hemisphere winter with restricted training time in the last 2 weeks prior to departure and not being a proficient cyclist, we struggled with the heat. Personally I feel the fitness rating level of 3, (which we felt comfortable with upon reading it) should be raised to accommodate the heat factor. The support from the group was awesome when we were unable to cope with the cycling at some stages and became the bus driver's favourite hitchhiker. Having that support knowing that you could be picked up at any stage was of tremendous value.

Cuba-the must go to destination

What an amazing country. Friendly people, happy to see tourists and very helpful. Great way to see the real Cuba by passing through small villages. I was impressed with how patient the drivers are, waiting for clear road before passing us even when it meant they had to stop. Wonderful cars, of course. Great tour guide, drivers and a fantastic group of fellow travelers.

A great way to see Cuba!

This is a fantastic way to see Cuba and gain an insight into the Cuban way of life, especially in the provincial towns and countryside. There is a mix of cycling routes, some days flattish and one or two with more demanding hills (but of course then the rewarding downhills!). I found the grading appropriate, although the heat in May/June contributed to its difficulty. Our group got on very well which added to the trip's enjoyment.

A well run cycling tour with plenty of enthusiastic support from the tour guides and drivers, which made this tour enjoyable and informative. The group all got along well with a good mix of ages and fitness levels with a lot of determination to give it all our best shot, despite riding in quite hot conditions.

A fantastic way to see Cuba. Beautiful scenery with the chance to see Cuban life as you pass it. A really good mix of the History, Cuban culture and everyday practicalities endured by all Cubans. Lovely cycling on well maintained bikes. There was always a person at hand to fix or adjust any problems. The group were great fun and we spent a lot of time laughing and trying to stay cool in the baking heat. Various tactics of wet clothing and the use of cooling buffs under our head gear. I found the cycling to be perfect for a moderately fit person with a slight disability. I hoped on the bus if I was struggling and was made to feel comfortable doing this. A really well organised trip. It met my expectations, of course there are always a few problems but that's enviable when you're travelling in a different hotel/Casa every night. I enjoyed the Casa's the best as it felt like we were away from the hotel cliche. Some of the hotels were outside the hustle and bustle of town life. It would have been nice to have been able to swim in the sea a little more than we did but it was a cycling trip. The food was as I expected. Some of the ingredients were there but their style of cooking Lobster was a shame, they boil it grill it to death. Beef was delicious and the goat ( they label it lamb) was always moist and tasty. Thank you Team Exodus Cuba
