TRANS-CUBA END TO END SPRING 2011
TRANS-CUBA END TO END SPRING 2011 A trip of a lifetime : the Trans - Cuba E2E is an exotic challenge that gives riders of all levels a chance to ride the length of Cuba.
For those who find the concept of a transcontinental ride too time consuming, Cuba End to End affords an opportunity to traverse the largest island in the Caribbean in just two weeks. Starting in Havana, an internal flight takes us to the southern city of Baracoa, where, after a day on the beach, filling up on chocolate and ice cream, we head out over the Farola Pass.This, the only real climb of the trip, takes us to Guantanamo. Continuing on, our journey takes us through Bayamo, capital of the Cespedez revolution against the Spanish, Las Tunas, home of our sponsored club, and on across the central lowlands to the ranchers capital, the old town of Camaguey. Heading on westwards towards the coast, we skirt the Escambray Mountains to visit the old city of Trinidad and the busy port city of Cienfuegos. Moving ever closer to Havana, we stop at Playa Larga, then, crossing the Bay of Pigs, head for San Antonio de Los Banos, mercifully clear of Havana's busy suburbs. From here, it's west across rural lowlands to the tobacco capital of Pinar del Rio. The final leg of the trip takes us through open country all the way to the west coast, where, a never to be forgotten beach strip affords access to Cuba's westernmost point, the remote and beautiful, Cabo San Antonio, a beach so clean and unspoiled it will be difficult to leave. But leave we must - after watching the sunset over Cancun and a morning swim, we take the bus back to finish our trip in Havana.
Come join Peter Marshall, Les Humphreys, Dave Livett and others already enlisted for this adventurous trip.
