"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."
Wally and Barbara Smith spent 6 months cycling 8000 kilometers in Cuba to provide detailed directions for 50 days of cycling. The rides vary in length, many combining to create multi-day loops. Detailed directions describe rides leaving Havana to the west and east. Subsequent rides are clustered in the three best regions of Cuba for cycling: Pinar del Rio, Central Cuba and the Oriente. A final section contains advice on connecting the regions for a long tour of the entire island. In addition, the authors provide information on getting to Cuba, equipment and accessories, food and water, safety considerations, overnight accommodations, and more. Exploring this fascinating country on two wheels may just be the best way to fully appreciate its history, people and culture. Each tour includes: a detailed map; kilometer-by-kilometer directions; information on local history and culture; and where to eat, stay and repair or rent a bike.
