Let’s ride, shall we? Today we ride around La Habana. Like any Capital City, some level of traffic is to be expected. However, it doesn’t compare to anything we may be used to. Just a detail, there are only some 800 000 private vehicles registered, out of a city population of some 2.5 million. Starting at Vedado, we will have a nice City Tour by bike. Along Centro Habana, La Habana Vieja (Old Havana), and towards Vía Blanca, we will appreciate how the city grew, and how different it is.
Some members of the La Guayaba Cycling Club, master’s category, also known as Guayaberos, will meet us to share with us “tempo” (or else) ride at “their” circuit. This will be a great opportunity for donations since these bike lovers struggle to get the simplest of spares. ANYTHING and EVERYTHING will be most welcome.
Right after the riding climax, we head out to San Francisco de Paula to visit La Finca Vigia, primary home of Ernst Hemingway during a third of his prolific life.
By now, we are done cycling and we are taking the shuttle back to La Habana Vieja for lunch. A proper Walking Tour through History, and right after, we will drive to Santa Clara.
Santa Clara is a city located in the central region of Cuba, some 3 hours away. It is the capital of the Villa Clara Province and has a rich history and cultural significance in the country. One of the most notable city landmarks is the Ernesto “Ché” Guevara Mausoleum and Memorial, which houses the remains of “Ché” Guevara and the rest of his guerrillas.

To Trnidad

Today is a great day. We will be riding around the Guamuaya Mountain Range area. There are multiple options to this ride, but what matters the most is that all of them are awesome rides, and certainly challenging in their own ways. The option described here is a very interesting one, comprising a little bit of everything, a good riding distance, green mountain surrounding scenery, and some challenging ups-and-downs.
Our destination today is Trinidad. Located on the southern coast of Cuba, is a UNESCO World Heritage site, since 1988, and one of the country’s most enchanting and historically significant cities. It is renowned for its exceptionally well-preserved colonial architecture. As you wander through the cobblestone streets, you’ll be transported back in time to the 18th and 19th centuries. Its location, by the Caribbean Sea, and to the North enclosed by the Guamuaya Mountains, makes this city one of the best touristic destinations in the country.

Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Plaza Mayor, Iglesia, Museo Romantico, Museo De La Lucha Contra Bandidos

After yesterday’s ride, it is up to us to take a break from the saddle, or simply taking a short recovery ride to Ancon, a Caribbean beach, only some miles from Trinidad.
Also, today we will do a walking tour of the city. Recognizing its outstanding universal value, the city’s historic center is a living museum, offering visitors a glimpse into Cuba’s colonial past. Exploring the well-preserved streets, squares, and buildings of Trinidad is like stepping into a bygone era. Trinidad is a captivating destination that seamlessly combines colonial charm, cultural heritage, and natural beauty. Its well-preserved architecture, UNESCO recognition, vibrant music scene, and proximity to stunning natural attractions make it an unforgettable place to visit in Cuba. Whether you’re a history enthusiast, a music lover, or an adventurer seeking unique experiences, Trinidad is sure to leave a lasting impression on you.
It is also a golden opportunity to exchange with the local entrepreneurs. The city in general, but the historical center is a very vibrant entrepreneurial stronghold. Mostly tourism oriented, the local economy rests on visitors and the services offered to these visitors. Even the little local production is conceived for the tourism industry.

We have another astonishing Coastal ride, between Cienfuegos and Caleta Buena.

It displays all shades of blue-crystal-clear waters, abundant marine life, and beautiful natural surroundings.

Today, we visit Playa Giron Museum. This museum is dedicated to the history and significance of the Bay of Pigs invasion, which took place in April 1961. The Bay of Pigs invasion was a pivotal event in Cuban history. It was an unsuccessful attempt by a paramilitary group of Cuban exiles, trained and supported by the United States, to overthrow the government of Fidel Castro. The museum aims to provide insight into the events leading up to the invasion, the battle itself, and its aftermath.
