Cuba is a unique caribbean country at times it feels more African than Latino due to a large Afro Caribbean Population. Religions Catholic and Santeria mix, music runs through the veins of the people and on a bike you can travel into the lush heartlands of the island far away from tourists. Routes are good, a few hilly sections but i am not a regular cycle tourer and i managed the trip although at a slower pace! Accommodation ranged from 5 star to beach bungalows, Some roads were empty some were busier but it was a great way to see the different forms of local transport be it a shining cadillac or a horse drawn carriage, facinating. I am a vegetarian but eat fish so food was not a problem as there was always an alternative for me. As a solo departure every one was mixing and we all became like a big family by the end of the journey!!
