Welcome to Cuba with our friend Jim, on his Gringo Viejo ride. Although Jim is exactly that, an old American, we named the ride not for him, but rather after a restaurant owned by a friend who has a striking resemblance to Gregory Peck and has named his establishment after the movie Gringo Viejo.

The best bicycle tour in Western Cuba
Come to Cuba on cycling holiday over the Christmas holidays. A fully supported tour with guides, mechanic and a following bus.
Cuba is like no other place. That’s why we love it! The people are kind, friendly and curious. The countryside is littered with farms, ranches, sugarcane, tobacco fields and blue skies.

In our quest to find new rides, we have this new two week expedition, in the far east of our beautiful island. Starting in the city of Holguin and heading east to Cuba's first village "Baracoa", where Columbus first laid eyes on Cuba. We have in the past just used Baracoa as a staring point for CicloTemba & Trans Cuba rides but this time we linger at a wonderful beach, take in the city and also a river boat up the Rio Yumuri to a riverside restaurant for lunch. Beyond Baracoa we enter the city of Guantanamo and even spend one night down in the bay with the American base in full view. On to Santiago for another lingering 3 day stay to better absorb this historic city and it's surroundings From the city we head into the back of beyond and visit Biran, the homestead of the Castro Family and Fidel's birthplace, this is no simple house and really worth the ride down an 8k back road. We will spend the next 2 nights up in the mountains of the Mayari forest at hotel so far from civilization, you will love it. Here we spend the second day riding to and from Cuba's highest waterfall. From the high mountain retreat we head to Guardalavaca for two days of beach before heading home
Ciclo Temba (Old Cyclist) A great way to do a Cuba End to End ride. This version takes it's own sweet time and skips the longer stretches of the "Full Monty" sportive ride. Please note that this event is open to American citizens or residents. Please contact us for more information.

Trans Cuba 2018will be the 7th edition of this epic ride across Cuba from end to end. This is listed as a "Sportif' and only road bikes will be permitted. You need to study the itinerary carefully, there are some long rides involved and a good level of experience is required. This is not a race.
