|Biketour auf der Karibikinsel Kuba
tour started April 2013, submitted 12 June 2013
Auf einer Radreise durch Kuba bleibt ausreichend Zeit, Land und Leute intensiv zu erleben. Die fast verkehrsfreien Strassen sind ideal um sich mit dem Fahrrad fortzubewegen. Wir fuhren von der Hauptstadt Havanna in einer Rundtour durch den Westen des Landes nach Vinales und anschliessend im Osten Kubas auf den Cayo Santa Maria und über den Pass Topes de Collantes nach Trinidad.

What does you connect with the Caribbean island Cuba? The plates rum, Rumba and Mojitos can be found easy in Havanna. The tourist face high-quality restored quarter of the Vieja may not be transferred however to the whole country. To this realization we came after three weeks and more than 2000 km by bike. Cuba presented itself from its special side. A violent tempest over us swept few hundred meters after the route start away. On a cow meadow we spent the first night and drove towards to the east into that wildest part of the island. Cows, pigs and goats coined/shaped fauna along the roads scattered by impact holes. In start to the notorious road La Farola we stayed overnight in a small settlement and the native handed dinners and breakfast to their new Amiegos. The local police had noticed us but with a match bright. We were allowed to remain fortunately and our hosts got also no annoyance. After we had overcome the la farola road the landscape changed into a desert. What a contrast to the sumptuously green northern part of the east. Over Guantanamo and Santiago de Cuba we drove more than 200 km between the sea and the highly rising summits along of the Parquenacionalturquino. Here in the mountains Fidels friends had already their hiding place. Numerous posters always referred us to the achievements of the revolution. Also a complete beach day granted ourselves in a solitary place in the middle north...

In summer 2008 we combined sun, salsa, lost of other good live music, mojito's, snorkelling and cycling in an amazing and difficult to understand country. We cycled 33 days through the west and the east off Cuba. I visited almost 25 % of the world but saw never a stranger country then Cuba; but it was wonderful.
|Vuelta a Cuba
tour started November 2005, submitted 31 May 2008
Palm trees, live music, hot dance, mojitos, and lots of backroads.
A lightweight tour of the Caribbean Island of Cuba.
The plan is to ride from east to west across the island to take advantage of the easterly winds this time of year. We know our starting point, Santiago de Cuba, and our ending point, La Habana, but we have no idea, nor do we want to have an idea about the route. I bought Lonely Planet's Cycling Cuba and a map of Cuba, these two pieces of paper will take us across Cuba or serve as toilet paper somewhere along the way.
|Cycling around Cuba

On April 2007 I left for 3 weeks of cycling around Cuba.
Flying into and off La Havana, I decided to concentrate on the centre and western part of the island.
After a couple of days in the capital, I left for a loop in Central Cuba, touching both the Northern and Southern coasts and passing Cienfuegos, Trinidad, Sancti Spiritus and Santa Clara. I spent the last week riding in Pinar del Rio Province.
