Cycling tours of Cuba

Cuba is a fantastic & wonderful place to do some cycling. The generally flat terrain and the year- round climate make Cuba an excellent choice for a cycling holiday. Due to the US trade embargo against Cuba, means there are very few cars on the road in comparison to other Latin American countries this in turn makes cycling all the more safer and much more enjoyable. In addition, millions of Cubans own bicycles which they use on a daily basis so you won't stand out from the crowds while cycling in Cuba. Although most Cubans do use bicycles for daily activities such as going to work or to the shops, and the idea of competitive or recreational long distance cycling is not really popular in Cuba with the locals. However, this shouldn't stop you from having a great time cycling in Cuba
