Cycling in Cuba

Brake is looking for adventurous volunteers to cycle in Cuba, taking in some of the world’s most breathtaking scenery AND if you raise enough sponsorship, you will be able to take part for FREE.

Prepare to be overwhelmed by Cuba’s natural contrasting beauty - from the dazzling beaches and clear blue seas of the Gulf of Mexico to the vibrant city of Havana. You cannot fail to be mesmerised by its charm! For those of you in search of a challenge of a lifetime, Cuba won’t fail to leave an indelible mark on you, providing you with memories forever.

General information

Accommodation will be a mixture of camping and 2/3* hotels.

Temperature is usually 23-26oC and can be hot and humid at this time of year.

What’s included - All food (except 6 meals), internal travel, accommodation, water and refreshments on cycling days, mechanics, guides, a doctor and medical support.

What do I need to bring? - No specialist kit is required, although you’ll need to bring your own cycle helmet; Your luggage will be carried seperately in one of the support vehicles, so you’ll just need to bring a bum bag to carry those essentials like sun tan lotion and a camera!

What’s it really like? - You cycle mainly on quiet back roads with good road surfaces. In the hillier regions the roads are pot-holed and rough. You cycle between 60 and 90 km each day, and there are some tough climbs, though most of the cycling is on undulating roads. The climate is tropical; it can be hot and humid, and some rain is likely. You camp in beautiful areas; facilities vary but are reasonably good.
