Cuba is definitely a place to spend some time on your bike. With so few cars on the road, cycling is pretty easy and you share your journey with the local horse and buggies, horseback riders, and cyclists. The people are very friendly and the hospitality in the casa particulars was outstanding. In this post, I will share the two different routes that we did over a two-week period.

Route One

Day one: Take the bus from Havana to Santa Clara
Day two: Santa Clara to Remedios (47km)
Day three: Remedios to Sancti Spiritus (74 km)
Day four: Sancti Spiritus to Trinidad (70 km)
Day five: Rest day and exploration in Trinidad and Playa Ancon
Day six: Trinidad to Cienfuegos (88 km)

On day seven, we hired a driver to transport us to Viñales to continue our journey.

Route Two

Day eight: Exploration of the Viñales area
Day nine: Day ride to Puerto Esperanza (60 km round trip)
Day ten: Vinales to Soroa (118 km)
Day eleven: Exploration of Soroa
Day twelve: Soroa to Las Terrazas (32 km)
Day thirteen: Las Terrazas back to Havana (86 km)

Lots of variety and a great experience to learn about the history and culture of Cuba.
