This will make a Cuban family very happy. 🙂
Super excited to be riding these 2 bike tours. Hope you like the video!
I'm so excited about these two bike tours.
Here are some photos of hanging out in Cuba during a bike tour. There are generally opportunities to visit local folks and see rural Cuba up close. This year I'm doing the Guantanamo Mango tour from Holguin to Guantanamo/Santiago, then up into the pine forests in the hills southeast of Holguin. Let me know if this is something you'd like to do, we are signing up riders now.
A beautiful ride and historic adventure, Join this people to people event in April

I went on this tour a few years ago with Lee and Beth. The tour is fantastic especially the south road. Lee and Beth are delightful people. Got to stay in some really interesting places...and Fidel's not so secret hideaway impresses me when I think people carried refrigerators on their backs to get to this spot.
Happy Valentines day :) 😍🚴‍♂️
ride the Celia Sanchez tour and learn more about the birth of this revolution. Visit the spot were they landed and La Plata where they set up camp to build an Army. Without Celia sucess would have more diffiult.
You can't beat the views - cycling Cuba!

Just putting back together this vintage Norco hybrid that one of our Fat Mary tour riders will take to Cuba in January. He will ride the bike for the 2-week tour, then donate it to a Cuban family so they can have transportation for years to come.

It will be a sweet ride after a bit more work.

As always, just ask if you have any questions.

I'm reading this recent (2020) book "Celia Sanchez Manduley, The life and legacy of a Cuba Revolutionary". It is an excellent read. I was excited to see that on page 25 the author highlights our bike tour the "Celia Sanchez Tribute Ride". How amazing that the author became aware of our annual tour and noted the importance of bicycle tourism for the country's economy, and to pass on lessons about Cuba's revolutionary history.

Come ride with us and learn about this amazing woman while you enjoy an active vacation in Cuba.

The Rolling Stones: Olé Olé Olé! A Trip Across Latin America | Netflix

We watched this excellent documentary on Netflix about the Rolling Stones concerts in 2016 in the South/Central Americas - you might want to as well.

A fairly large part of the story is the band's desire to put on a free concert in Cuba towards the end of the tour. I had to laugh at how hard it was for them to make this possible with all the hoops to jump through with the Cuban government. The Pope and President Obama even managed to make it harder.

I can relate as it can be challenging to navigate Cuban government/business rules, and this is why you want to chose Bicycle Breeze based in Havana with 20 years of experience delivering quality bike tours across Cuba when you are thinking of checking out all the great cultural and cycling experiences Cuba has to offer. Peter Marshall and crew know how to get things done!

As a side note, the 'Stones take a bit too much credit for being the first big international band to do a concert in Cuba... Others like Audioslave in 2005 did the same thing (with similar logistical challenges).

Bike Touring in Cuba 2022

Lee Orphan put together this brief presentation on Cuba Bike Tours that he is leading in January and February 2022. Its nice to have something to look forward to, and to see some photos of fun times cycling the quiet roads of Cuba.

The 25 minute presentation provides some information on our tour company Bicycle Breeze, our efforts to support Cuban youth cyclists with bike equipment, and some beautiful photos of what you can explore if you are able to join us on a tour.

As you have heard Cuba is struggling like the rest of the world with COVID-19, the good news being that 21% of Cubans are already fully vaccinated, with plans to fully vaccinate the population by the end of summer. With COVID-19 and the resulting impact on the economy from lost tourism revenue the people are suffering and frustrated with their government. This has led to protests for more food, and perhaps equally more freedom of expression. It is a country of kind and resilient people, and we are confident they will pull through and be stronger. Our friends in Cuba are all doing very well and have expressed to us their concerns and hope for a better future. We look forward to supporting them as best we can.

We will continue to monitor the situation, and plan accordingly for our bike tours

We love riding in Cuba, but its fun to ride at home. Here is one of our tour leaders, Lee Orphan, riding on vacation in Boulder Colorado. Good times, but Cuba is way less intense 🙂.

Today we have advice on tire selection and ideal tire pressure. Have a quick read - and shoot us any questions or comments.

Cuban roads are variable, from smooth as a dream asphalt in many cases, to worn asphalt, and sometimes down to pot holes and gravel (kinda like where I live in Canada with all the winter frost).

Generally, for most of our tours we recommend wider tires such as 28-35 mm. This actually can roll very fast, and the added air volume greatly increases comfort.

The next thing to consider is tire pressure. Most of us grew up thinking more air pressure is faster - often riding 100-160 psi. That's been debunked in recent years with real world testing where roads are bumpy and rough. See the attached tables which provide a good starting place for matching your tire width and weight to the recommended optimal tire pressure. These pressures may be lower than you have used in the past but will be way more shock absorbing, and faster.

Trust us :-)

Pro Tip - It can get sweaty riding in Cuba, just add water and these little tablets swell up into a durable face cloth - many are biodegradable, depending on which brand you buy. I always keep a handful with me :-)

Sheri Fraser gave me this bike to take to Cuba this winter. I added an 8 speed rear wheel I happened to have in my stash, recabled, added a newer saddle, new tires and tubes.

It will make an excellent addition to a Cuban youth cycling club. Not sure if it will be in Las Tunas or Havana, will depend on options to transport it with Beth and me, hoping another tour rider will help by including it as their luggage😉

On the Celia Sanchez Tour, which Lee Orphan will be leading in January 2022, we explore the area where the revolutionaries landed, and then moved into the Sierra Maestra mountain range to wage their war.

This photo depicts the boat the "Granma" that defying the odds carried 82 fighters from Mexico to a swampy landing at Playa Las Coloradas. We will see this boat and the landing site along with the base camp high in the mountains that Batista's troops never found.

A Cuban tour guide will be with us throughout the tour to share local information and enhance the experience.

Cuba is using the downtime during COVID to update many of its hotels. Here is the new pool tile being laid at Marea del Portillo - Farallon. Plus a new hot tub and shaded sun beds.

Our Celia Sanchez tour in January will spend a night here enjoying the all-inclusive resort, and check out the Sierra Maestra mountains in the background, behind the large protected cove where the water temperature hovers around 82 degrees F.

Picture yourself at this famous sign, located near the Hotel Nacional, Havana.

The Hotel Nacional (officially Hotel Nacional de Cuba) is a celebrated hotel and major landmark of Havana. It has hosted famous personalities including Frank Sinatra, Rita Hayworth and Winston Churchill. Visit the Hotel Nacional to admire its striking architecture.

Inaugurated in 1930, the hotel originally had a strict policy of not allowing Cubans to stay as guests. The dictator Fulgencio Batista took control in 1933. In the same year the structure suffered damage during the Battle of the Hotel Nacional de Cuba. It became a hotel again soon after that and was the location for the 1946 Havana Conference, a meeting of Sicilian and U.S. mafia leaders. Francis Ford Coppola referenced this event in the movie The Godfather: Part II.

As you approach the hotel, gaze up at the façade’s mix of art deco and neoclassical styles. Step inside the lobby to see traditional Cuban and Moorish elements. Note the sparkling chandeliers, wood-carved mail slots and a brass letter box. Spot the coats of arms of Catalonia and Castile and León, Spanish regions that have greatly influenced Cuba.

Browse photographs and memorabilia of the hotel’s esteemed guests in the Hall of Fame. They range from actor Fred Astaire to mafia boss Lucky Luciano and creative genius Walt Disney. In the garden a series of subterranean tunnels tell stories about the Cuban Missile Crisis of 1962. Look for the two huge cannons, which were part of the 18th-century Santa Clara Battery that once occupied this spot.
