Cycling in Cuba

Within the next six months we are hoping to cycle tour in Cuba. Does anyone know if there are regular buses from Jibacoa to Trinidad? Do they take bikes? How much would a taxi with two people and two bikes cost for the one-way trip?

Hi birvine, maybe this site will help.

I have been to Cuba 6 times and I have seen many cyclists from Canada on tour. Hope to do it myself someday when my schedule permits.
Happy Touring!

All non American's , no surprise there. Not an American freedom.. A friend once tried a cycling trip to Cuba.. As a cultural exchange... One time that was allowed. Request denied...
