10 Questions: Bicycle Touring In Cuba

Cuba has friendly people, quiet roads and you can tour there on a budget.

That was the experience of Canadian couple Margo & Chris, who spent January of 2006 bicycle touring across Cuba; an 1,800km journey.

Pedalling west out of Havana, they were initially nervous because it was their first bike tour. Those worries soon faded, however, as they were greeted by shouts of “hola” and warmly welcomed in the B&Bs where they slept.

It wasn’t all smooth sailing. Food could be hard to find, and sometimes they were greeted in towns by young touts, trying to lead them to a particular B&B.

Read more about their Cuban cycling experience in this week’s 10 Questions.
