WoWCuba Group Cycle Touring Equipment

WoWCuba’s high quality, professionally maintained 27-speed hybrid bicycles are outfitted for touring. The current group cycle touring fleet consists mainly of the Specialized Sirrus Comp, the Specialized Vita Comp and Specialized Vita Pro although other options are available to satisfy the individual needs of clients. A limited number of Evox electric-assist bikes are available for a small upgrade fee; these are very appropriate for cyclists looking for a more upright riding position, those who’ve undergone knee/hip surgery, or simply participants looking to take some of the effort out of hills.

Other companies may claim that their bikes are the best in Cuba, but those in the know will agree that no one offers a comparable rental fleet to WoWCuba’s whose Specialized bikes have a MSRP of $1000+ and are maintained by experienced, knowledgeable and professional bicycle mechanics. Guided 7 and 14-night cycle tour packages include a souvenir water bottle, rental of handlebar map bag or rear insulated trunk bag & helmet.Note that some clients prefer to bring their own helmets, saddles, and clipless pedal/shoe systems and there is no problem installing those on WoWCuba’s equipment.

For visitors seeking independent bicycle rentals with Havana pickup/dropoff for your visit to Cuba, WoWCuba highly recommends the rental services and equipment available from CicloCuba in Old Havana. For information, rates and reservations (note 3+ minimum consecutive rental days required for advance reservations) please  visit www.ciclocuba.com.

Notes

WoWCuba’s bicycle touring fleet comes equipped with rear platform carrier, water bottle cages and helmets.

Platform pedals or toe clips/straps included. If you ride clipless, you should bring your own shoes/pedals for local installation. If you have a favorite helmet or are difficult to fit, you should also bring your personal helmet. If you prefer not to break in your sit bones while traveling, we are happy to install your personal saddle on our equipment.

Conditions

  • Extensions are available for tour clients who wish to use their equipment before/after WoWCuba guided bicycle tours. Inquire for rates.

Recommendations

For independent extensions bring a lock and, when not riding, always leave your bicycle with an official parking attendant, or in a Bici Parqueo.

A basic multitool (with minimum of chain tool, tire levers, 8-9-10 box wrench, 2/2.5/3/4/5/6 Hex or Allen keys, spoke wrenches, phillips & flat head screwdrivers), minipump with Presta/Schraeder fittings (if your pump is Schraeder only, we suggest bringing a Presta adaptor), universal water bottle, and spare tubes are also a good idea.

You should bring spare hybrid tubes, size 700 X 35-38C (Presta valves). Our current rental stock was originally outfitted with Schraeder tubes, but some have been switched out for Presta valves.
