Cuba Bicycle Tours

The largest island in the Caribbean, Cuba is a fascinating country. With relatively little traffic, friendly and curious locals, an eternal summer, endless unspoiled coastline and a fascinating blend of cultures, it’s an ideal place to explore by bicycle.

MacQueen’s Island Tours/WoWCuba has specialized in delivering high quality supported cycle tours to Cuba since 1994. Insight and authenticity are ensured by our use of local guides on all group cycle tours. To ensure that services are delivered to the high standards our clients expect, on or behind the scenes, a member of the WoWCuba team is there to ensure the experience is everything you imagined it to be. Our group cycling activities are mainly focused in the mornings, leaving many afternoons free for independent exploration, relaxation, hiking, swimming, reading, and more. Our trips are geared to more sophisticated, experienced travelers who appreciate creature comforts, are looking to recharge and understand Cuba’s culture far beyond the ordinary. Besides that, we think you’ll agree that cycling is the perfect medium for socializing with like-minded people, allowing you to drink in Cuba’s sights and sounds at your own pace. And if that weren’t enough, while you’re riding you’ll be working off some of the calories you’ll consume indulging in Cuba’s burgeoning restaurant scene. Our tour leaders are die-hard foodies and take great pride in ensuring that we go above and beyond to deliver a superior food experience as part of our trips.

From November to March in Cuba’s winter/dry season, we offer various one-week group bicycle tours and the ever-popular annual Vuelta Cuba, a 2-week trip from Santiago to Havana. In October – November and March – April we offer several private tour dates centered around our Western and Central Cuba tour itineraries. We have resident company representatives who’ll introduce you to their favorite local spots, a large fleet of undisputedly the best rental bicycles available in Cuba individually selected for their components, comfort and suitability to the terrain, and all the experience, expertise and accessories to ensure an unforgettable cycle vacation in Cuba. In the summer/rainy season we suspend our group cycling programs as summer temperatures are usually not the most favorable for cycling in this destination, in addition to the higher probability of rain which can result in slick road conditions with the high # of diesel vehicles on the roads in Cuba. For those interested in exploring Cuba’s roads on 2 wheels in the summer, we highly recommend the independent bicycle rental services available at CicloCuba in Old Havana.

Having spent all of our adult lives exploring Cuba, we have fostered lasting and meaningful relationships with local operators. Some of our clients have marveled about how members of a WoWCuba trip seem to have roads paved for them on check-in, extra touches magically appear at the dining table, and hugs and warm family welcomes are regularly extended to our tour leaders when they appear to pay a visit to the homes of locals. Allow our team to show you the natural beauty of Cuba, and you’ll discover (as we have) that the real warmth is found in the hearts of the people.
