Cuban Highlights Ride

Cuban Highlights late April 2016

5
What it says on the tin, and much more! A well chosen itinerary, allowing us to see a good mix of coast, countryside and beautifully preserved towns. There were well timed stops along the way, especially the refreshment stops, sweet coffee and chocolate on day 1, fruit tasting on another and the heavenly peanut butter fudge stall to fuel our final uphill stretch. In addition the hotels, casas and restaurants provided a good mix of local cuisine and accommodation, the hotels surpassing my expectations. Even the last day, a tour around Havana, was fun and interesting, avoiding the sad 'end of holiday' feeling.

This was a really enjoyable trip. As well as enjoying a good variety of cycling, we learned a lot about the life and politics of the country and had the chance to explore some amazing historic towns.

A very well organised trip with a great leader who kept us motivated and entertained. Cuba is changing fast so great to see it firsthand. Cycling conditions were pretty good although it got hot afternoon when the combination of the heat and the hills meant the going got tough from time to time.

Cuban Highlights Ride (MAC) 11-18 Feb 2016

A most enjoyable 8 days with a perfect combination of cycling and cultural activities. The guide (Laz) was excellent, as a cycling leader, with knowledge of Cuba, and with melding and helping out the group. The cycles were in very good condition (nearly new) and ideal for the task and the mechanic/safety cyclist (Guillaume) was ever cheerful - and had the biggest thighs we've ever seen. The bus was very comfortable and the driver (Ivan) very safe. The weather, the music, the accommodation, and the cocktails were always excellent.

Cuban Highlights Ride 11FEB2016

A really interesting insight into this amazing country, viewed from two wheels! We've never experienced such a different culture and way of life, and doing it on a bike, gave us a genuine feeling of connection and involvement. Everyday was different and varied. The cycling was moderate for non-regular cyclists, but the excellent bikes with good gears made the routes easily doable

I'm not really much of a cyclist but I'd decided that seeing Cuba from the seat of my saddle was the only way to experience this fascinating destination. In the end, I fell in love with Cuba and fell in love with cycling too! The holiday was just the right mix of culture, history and beach and it was all done at our own pace. Each day we saw or did different things and I'd wake up each morning, looking forward to whatever the next day would bring! Also, I felt very safe on my bike. The traffic was very light and always gave us a wide berth.

Cuban Highs and Lows

In the immortal words of Kate Humble: things don't go wrong, they just go different! There is nothing like a little adversity to cement friendship. In fact it is an essential ingredient of group cohesion. Our guide overcame every obstacle with skill and confidence. He made even the most challenging experiences pleasurable. The bus, the mechanic and the driver were the best support team one could have wished for. Cuba is unpredictable but they made our journey a delightful experience in spite of a few difficulties.

Cycling Cuban Highlights

Fantastic holiday, well organised trip around fascinating and beautiful country. Hotter and more humid than expected. Cycling also harder than expected only because of heat, humidity and head winds. Stops came every 10 to 15km and were much appreciated. Plentiful water was provided but note you do need to take your own snacks, fruit or energy bars/drinks. We were bitten more than we expected so do take repellant with you and possibly some antihistamines. Casa stay in Trinidad was very interesting and despite appearances was very comfortable with full facilities. All the Cubans were very friendly. Day trip on catamaran to beautiful deserted tropical island was outstanding but was a long motor out (2hrs). Boat trip around lake and dam was quite different though! - rather worryingly unstable, noisy and full of exhaust (and driver's cigarette) fumes! Somewhat spoilt the beauty of the lake and surrounds.

Cuba Highlights were the Highlights!

Just returned from the eight day trip cycling around Central Cuba. Still on a high!. Brilliant first holiday with Exodus. The combination of an excellent tour guide (Thank you Yasel and his crew), a great bunch of fellow travellers/cyclists, lush green undulating countryside, a variety of good accommodation including two nights "homestays" in Trinidad, the vibrant music, and a hot sunny climate to contrast with the dark, cold grey of London I left, resulted in a memorable holiday experience.
