Discover all Cuba has to offer in this complete cycling guide. Wally and Barbara Smith spent 6 months cycling 8,000 miles in Cuba to provide detailed directions for 50 days of cycling. The rides vary in length, many combining to create multi-day loops. Detailed directions describe rides leaving Havana to the west and east. Subsequent rides are clustered in the three best regions of Cuba for cycling: Pinar del Rio, Central Cuba, and the Oriente. A final section contains advice on connecting the regions for a long tour of the entire island. In addition, the authors provide information on getting to Cuba, equipment and accessories, food and water, safety considerations, overnight accommodations, and more. Exploring this fascinating country on two wheels may just be the best way to fully appreciate its history, people, and culture.

Che Guevara and Fidel Castro; the Buena Vista Social Club and salsa dancing; slavery, pirates, cigars, rum and sugar; Graham Greene and Ernest Hemingway; political repression; and ecstatic Afro-Cuban religion: 21st-century Cuba is all and none of these things.Intrigued by the many disparate views of Cuba held by tourists, the media and those involved with culture and politics, Zoe Bran visits this country of contradictions. Interweaving history and current events, she paints a vivid and compelling picture of contemporary Cuba. She finds a land that has little in common with the tourist image of tropical paradise, encountering a diffident country whose people reveal an individuality and tenacity at once astonishing and humbling.
