"In this delightful and very practical guide, they outline, kilometer by kilometer-for all the Canadians and Europeans whose governments actually let them vacation in Cuba legally-the best places to eat, sleep, sightsee, and even avoid."

Format: Paperback
Bicycling Cuba turned out to be invaluable during our three-week trip to the western part of Cuba. The authors really know what they are writing about. Some of the most interesting and rewarding routes suggested in the book were not on the best maps available. The authors way of describing the routes kilometer by kilometer was of great help because very often roads were unmarked. At the intersections we had no problems in choosing the right road. The book also contains a lot of other useful information, for example, on accomodation.
We warmly recommend Bicycling Cuba for independent cyclists planning a trip to Cuba.

I am afraid Cuba has changed a lot in 10 yrs and the guide is now mostly outdated.
Here a few reasons why:
- the packing list essentials is now different because lots of things were not available in Cuba 10yrs ago.
- the directions includes landmarks
- shops for water , food etc have now moved , closed, re-opened somewhere else
- most roads have not been maintained and are horrible to ride and other ones are now nice.
Need an updated version soon!!

Format: Paperback
I took the authors recommendation and followed the Santa Clara - Trinidad - Playa Giron - Australia - Mantanzas to Havana circuit.
With the exception of the area near Trinidad, the scenery was rather boring: Sugar cane and farmland yet the authors promised some pretty special scenery. Playa Giron and it's approach, was one of the most boring places imaginable. Through their numerous trips to Cuba, the authors have allowed themselves to become besotted by Cuba and view the entire Island as one big paradise. I am glad I went to Cuba, the provincial cities were beautiful but in hindsight, I wouldn't have travelled this hot and dull route by bike

Fantastic guidebook for anyone wishing to cycle tour in Cuba on your own. I went to Cuba last year for 2 weeks on my own, I'd never cycle toured before, but wanted to take my own bike and have a go. I hate guided groups so this guidebook was pretty much all I needed. Even though the book was written some time ago, all the info was pretty much up to date as very little (if anything) has changed.

Cuba is a very beautiful country to explore on bicycle, for now there is very little traffic outside of the cities, much of it is flat, the people are so warm & helpful and you can always find someone who will help you fix your bike (though you may need your own parts as it's hard for them to get new supplies). I can't wait to go back to see more. In two weeks I saw the western part of Cuba so there's still the whole eastern side for me to explore!

It was easy to follow since I had no idea of distance between towns it gives distance in Km. however many of the distances between the Smith's choice of towns is a little too long for many cyclists and perhaps more references could be added about smaller towns and villages on route. Overall it is one of the best books on Cuba that I have come across so far in preparation for a cycling holiday in Cuba.
