Che Guevara: Bicycle Tourist
We’re just back from a month of bike touring in Cuba. Trip reports and photos are on the way (once we’ve recovered from jet lag and found time to put all our thoughts together).
In the meantime, here’s an intriguing image we discovered in Cuba, of famous revolutionary Che Guevara on a bicycle tour!
We found out in a museum that this image was taken during a 4,500km bike tour of northern Argentina in the early 1950s.
Although it isn’t immediately obvious from the photo, Wikipedia says Che had fitted a small motor to the bicycle. This was a precursor to his later (and more famous) travels, outlined in The Motorcycle Diaries.
