About your host

We are group of friends who, driven by our love for cycling and desire to always have fun, are eager to share with others a more genuine take of Havana through exciting cycling experiences. Our secret? We capture the spirit of new Cuba in our bike tours, Havana Underground, The Enchanted Forest and L'Essentiel de La Havane, as well as in our bike events, Vuelta de Noche and Havana Critical Mass…

What we’ll do

Let’s go by bike to explore a forest enchanted by tropical jungle landscapes, which has fallen into oblivion. In the heart of Havana, lies the Almendares river. This river was once Havana's economic backbone, intertwined with the cities' growth since Havana's 1519 foundation. Its industries ended with 20th century urbanization as Havana spread west. Today, its industrial remains lie abandoned…

What else you should know

There are no bike lanes in Cuba. The ride distance is about 10 km (6.2 miles). There are a couple of hills. Bring extra water.

What I’ll provide

Snacks
We'll share seafood tapas Just before finishing we will share some tapas together in a beautiful place on the banks of the Almen
Drinks
Water and tropical juice We will provide you with water at the beginning and get a fabulous juice before end.
Equipment
Comfortable bike, an optional helmet and rain-poncho will be provided.

What to bring

Extra water. Water (1/2 L) will always be provided, and you may choose to purchase additional water at the bike shop if you like. The tropical forest has high humidity.
Light clothing and comfortable shoes.
Anti-mosquito lotion.
Sunscreen and sunglasses. Most of the tour is in the shade, but outside of the forest the Cuban sun is very strong!
Your camera for the best photos, when we stop.
