If you are thinking about cycle touring in Cuba or just want to read about my trip, this section is for you!
Cycling in Cuba is something I have wanted to do for years. In February/March 2017 I was finally able to make the trip a reality. Jamie and I decided to make the trip independently of any tour operators. My sister and her wife had done almost the same tour in 2015 and with advice from them, the help of Cycling Cuba by Wally and Barbara Smith and a bit of research we felt ready to go for it!
I will also be publishing pages on trip gear, as general tips on visiting Cuba whether by bike or not.
This was our first cycle touring trip therefore our first experience of riding with panniers. I believe we were extremely lucky to see the country in this way. In all we covered 1065 km in our three weeks. We visited cities, towns and small villages and were able to see every tiny detail in-between.
I hope you will share in the joy of our journey and be inspired to go on your own adventures!
