The east Cuba cycling route covered 922Km/573 miles and 24,658 feet/7516m of climbing.
Beginning in Holguín, heading north to the Atlantic coast at Gibara then east through the northern oriente, against the prevailing trade winds to Baracoa, the most eastern city in Cuba. Next you’ll ride up and over La Farola, a road that opened in 1965, (it hasn’t changed much)through the peaks of Cuchillas de Baracoa. For those who enjoy climbing, it’s a good’un and for those who relish the rewards, it’s a cracking downhill to the blue green Caribbean Sea. From here, you’ll have the wind at your back and sweat in your eyes. Hotter than the north coast with exotic jungle rides. If I told you anymore, I’d spoil the surprise.
We spent three weeks in Cuba riding for 17 days.
A short route along a disused railway line in the Meon Valley and a bivvy on Beacon Hill. Bridleways, lanes and double track along the South Downs Way that can be done in a day. Includes a section of the Kings Way with a rip roaring section of singletrack. A touch under 70 km with 700m of climbing.
