Deze ligt bij onze balie en is ook te downloaden via de app 'Radtouren meinRheinland', leuk voor Duitse gasten maar eigenlijk gewoon voor iedereen die van fietsen houdt! Bij ons staat de koffie met vlaai klaar!

Tip Número Diez y Siete

Say Hola, wave, ask for directions, or stop for a chat with local farmers.


We have seen a lot of lawn mower engines attached to bikes, but this my favorite example of Cuban ingenuity by bicycle.


Tip Número Doce
Get accustomed to eating pork and fried chicken. I went veg.

The best place to eat was at our Casa Particulares. Breakfast costs $4-$6 and dinner $6-$15. We had breakfast half the time and dinner twice. Fish is usually a good option.
Because we were on a tighter budget we ate where the Cubans do. For $1.50 you can find lunch called completos- complete with rice and beans, salad and chicken or pork.

Tip Número Diez

Cuba might be one of the safest countries I've visited, but unfortunately, it is the most machista.

A bit of advice to the men and boys of Cuba: treat women with respect. Please, stop the harassment.
To the men who treated me with kindness, right on.
To my Latino boyfriend, thank you for being my equal.


Tip Número Nueve

If you are in Havana and in need of mechanical assistance, check out the bike shop Taller Velo.

This was the most professional bike shop we came across. Equipped with real bike tools!

Most shops aren't exclusively bikes. Go to any mechanic and they'll have some idea how to jerry-rig what needs fixing, and have some old parts if you are lucky. Remember this is Cuba and QBP might as well be in the moon.

This place is special for two more reasons. Firstly, the owner and lead mechanic are female. Right on! Secondly, they have a pretty strong connection to Iowa City, Iowa. Both World Of Bikes and the Bike Library made donations of tools and supplies to them recently. So when we stumbled upon this shop and they were like, "You're from Iowa City? You know Ryan and Mauro then?" Right on!!

At any given time there are at least four mechanics as the place is pretty busy. Lots of locals stopping by for quick adjustments and it's the go-to shop in Vedado. Twice we needed parts so they looked until they found something that would work off of their own used bikes stock.

Taller (workshop) VELO (Vente Energía Loisir Opportunité) which roughly translates from Spanish and French as: come energy and leisure opportunity.


Tip Número Ocho

Wash clothes whilst showing and hang to dry upon arrival!

Only once did I make the mistake of not washing my riding shorts. It was only 20 miles, but under the sweltering sun I was a salt-lick in no time.

Within two minutes of securing a Casa for the night I was in the shower. It was the first thing I wanted to do after riding 100 km. Washing my clothes was the last. Paying someone to wash my clothes every night was out of the question.

Dr. Bronners soap is best.


Tip Número Siete

Stay in Casas Particulares!

This is one of the best pieces of advice for
Had we planned ahead or reserved a hotel we wouldn't have enjoyed this killer room on the water in Playa Larga. Every house we stayed in the hosts were amazing.

Casas Particulares are a network of people across the county who rent out rooms for $20-$35 a night to travelers. There are some Casas you can find online, however given that there is very limited Internet most Casas host's are not well connected.

The best thing to do is simply roll into town and spend a little bit of time scoping out the scene. All Casas display a large blue sign in the shape of a cross or ice pick. Just go knock.

Find a quiet neighborhood, a Casa close to the bar, one on the water. Inquire within as to cost, check if the toilet is equipped with a seat, and feel the bed for any springs poping out before making a final decision.

More on Casas later!


Tip Número Seis

Coco Frio!

Fresh coconut water is super hydrating. When finished you can always find someone with a machete to open it and snack on the meat (masa).

Keep an eye out for Coco Frío signs, fruit stands that might have coco, or if you spot green cocos in a tree simply ask the owner if you can buy a few. And if they will open it.

We always tried to buy 5L H2O as it is so much cheaper. Ask around where they are sold.

Carrying more than six liters of water for 100km day in the saddle isn't always possible, nor is finding water en route. Cocos are a good option for mid-day or rehydration after reaching the destination.


Tip Número Cinco

Have a way too carry fresh fruit!

I took cheap, collapsible panniers that I gave away with the bike. It didn't matter if the fruit got a little smashed. Eating fresh fruit rather than only processed foods was important. Sometimes buying whole papaya or pineapple was the only option, and cheap at that. At times fresh food seemed scarce so I loaded up at produce stands. We crossed paths with some bike-campers; their nice Ortlieb panniers caked on the inside with fruit juice. My front wire basket also worked great for keeping cheese and fruit cooler than in my plastic luggage would out in the sun on the road all day.
