Photos of Cuba Bike Tour that never quite was...

Hi Everyone

Well I planned to finally get to Cuba with my bike in January 2007. Two days before I was due to fly, with the bike all packed and nearly all mentally prepared I happened to ring up Air France about ordering a meal on the flight over...
I happened to ask them if I had to warn them about bringing a bike onboard. And they dashed my plans in a sentence when they told me they didn't allow any bikes on their France to Cuba flights!!!

Anyway, I went there, a little sad at having left my bike. Met a few other cyclists over there, all who raved about the quiet roads...

Photos are here: http://www.geocities.com/leon_maurice_and_tyrone/cuba

If you haven't seen my North American Bike Tour webpage yet, that's here: http://www.geocities.com/leon_maurice_and_tyrone

Hope you enjoy
Cheers
Leon

Hey Leon, I'm glad to hear you finally made it to Cuba. I remember you saying in your North American bike trip travel journal that you wanted to visit Cuba. Great photos as usual. Sorry to hear you couldn't bring your bike though.
