Whether you’re new to cycling or hitting the saddle again after a long hiatus, a leisurely pace is likely to suit you. Our leisurely tours give you the opportunity to get out on your bike every day, but leave you the time and energy to visit Cuba’s highlights. Our dedicated staff will take care of both you and your bike, offering 100% mechanical support and guiding you on the route so that you don’t have to worry about getting lost. Any time you feel tired you can hitch a ride in the support vehicle, no need to push yourself to the limit, you’re on holiday after all! Most rides are over by lunch, so you’ll have the afternoons to explore. Cycle at your own pace, with time to bask in your surroundings.

 

VIEW LEISURELY TOURS

 

Our moderate biking trips are for frequent cyclists or less frequent cyclists with a high level of fitness. Rides of maximum 75 kilometres on varied terrain offer a good leg-stretch and the opportunity to get off the beaten track. You will be challenged by the day’s activity but not exhausted; you will still have some time in the afternoon to relax and see a few sights. Immerse yourself in the Cuban countryside, following back roads and picnicking on scenic hilltops, before unwinding with a beer on a colonial plaza.

 

VIEW MODERATE TOURS

As the name would suggest, our challenging tours are for those who want to really push themselves. These tours are for regular, confident cyclists prepared for all-day rides and some serious climbs. Besides the difficulty of the rides, cyclists need to be prepared for cycling long distances in hot and humid conditions. Challenging tours are all about the cycling and the awe-inspiring sights you’ll see along the way, with less time for traditional sightseeing. Picnic en route and enjoy demanding biking through some of the Caribbean’s most dramatic scenery.
