Havana city emerged as a product and witness of a tumultuous and epic history, due to its position as a gateway to the New World, at the intersection of great imperialist powers fighting to control it. Havana’s monuments, architecture, urban landscapes and atmosphere are a direct illustration of the grandeur and splendor that has made this city exceptional since its founding 500 years ago. We can tell that because we are not only enthusiastic about bikes, we also love our history. Now we propose you to hit all of Havana’s highlights in a bike ride giving you the freedom of movement and the pace to take in most of the city in just an experience. Together will go from Spanish colonial sites, to American style buildings, around city’s busiest neighborhoods of Centro Habana, to glamorous parks and lanes, along the city’s seaside boardwalk, and of course, to the grand square where Fidel Castro gave many passionate speeches to thousands of Cubans. Let’s capture the city’s charm with many photos, and observe how present-day Cubans interact with this splendid city’s past.
