We warmly recommend Bicycling Cuba for independent cyclists planning a trip to Cuba.
If you plan to cycle tour in Cuba I would recommend this book
This book might be approaching 14 years old and some may find it a little dated, importantly, most of what I've read is accurate enough to allow you to have an adventure of your own and make some new discoveries without having everything on the plate.
The book is clearly laid out and easy to follow.
For anyone thinking of cycling around Cuba, this really is the book to read and refer to.
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!
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!!
Shame the book received was a printed copy and not an original - claimed to be a first edition but was clearly not.
