About your host

We are group of friends who, driven by our love for cycling and desire to always have fun, are eager to share with others a more genuine take of Havana through exciting cycling experiences. Our secret? We capture the spirit of new Cuba in our bike tours, Havana Underground, The Enchanted Forest and L'Essentiel de La Havane, as well as in our bike events, Vuelta de Noche and Havana Critical Mass…

What we’ll do

Let’s go by bike to explore a forest enchanted by tropical jungle landscapes, which has fallen into oblivion. In the heart of Havana, lies the Almendares river. This river was once Havana's economic backbone, intertwined with the cities' growth since Havana's 1519 foundation. Its industries ended with 20th century urbanization as Havana spread west. Today, its industrial remains lie abandoned…
