Cuba Bike Tour

Jan 18-27, 2021

10 days | Cuba | alumni UBC Travel Club

Head into the heart of a captivating island nation. Cycle along the waters of the Caribbean coast and through lush countryside. Discover small towns and the island’s sparkling inland lake. Cuba’s quiet roads are an ideal destination for a cycling holiday – with a refreshing swim and a cool mojito the reward for your efforts. Immerse yourself in Cuba’s joyful culture with stays in hosted bed and breakfasts and evenings filled with music.

Our Cuban cycling leaders are trained and experienced and ensure your ride is enjoyable. Bikes are provided and a support vehicle shadows the route, available to you when you need it. There will be many days when you are cycling among Cubans as you experience this vibrant island.

Cuba is an island of surprises with wonderful views around every turn in the road. Join us for an active exploration!

Message from Marisa:

"I have been a casual cyclist most my life but in recent years have gotten more into long distance cycling. In 2017 I participated in the BC Ride to Conquer Cancer and this 2-day, 200km + cycling event definitely solidified my love for the sport and the cycling community. I loved this event so much; I started my own team and now have almost 20 teammates that will cycle and raise over $50K together for cancer research in BC!

Last year I completed the Whistler Half Ironman and while you can likely imagine, it was one of the most physically challenging things I have done, but it was also so much fun. Every aspect of an Ironman is difficult but for me the bike felt fun. I love the challenge of conquering a hill, of coasting down hill or breezing through a flat stretch.

Training for the half Ironman was so much fun because it forced me to explore areas of my own city on bike, that I hadn’t been to before. I thoroughly enjoyed the peaceful nature of cycling along back roads and taking the scenic route that I wouldn’t take if I was traveling by car. After 8 months of training I felt like I had a new appreciation of my city. This is mostly what has me so excited about cycling around Cuba in January.

Being active outdoors is something I am extremely passionate about. Combine that with travel and you have a win/win experience!"
