Escape the grey British weather this winter with the Cycle Cuba Challenge

Relax by mountain lakes and on palm fringed beaches
If you would like a truly unique and memorable experience of Cuba in 2015 then join Cuba Solidarity Campaign on the Cycle Cuba Challenge this November and see the country as you never have before.

Want to know how you can sign up for the trip of a lifetime today? Just click here.

Cycling through dramatic scenery and along quiet rural roads away from the usual tourist trails provides wonderful opportunities to experience vibrant Cuban culture at first hand.
The 12-day November 2015 Cycle Challenge route takes in an exhilarating 315 kilometres from Sancti SpĂ­ritus, one of Cuba’s seven original Spanish towns, to the historic city of Santa Clara, home to the Che Guevara memorial and museum. The start and finish of the trip are based in the capital Havana, the beautiful UNESCO World heritage site, where you have the chance to explore this fascinating city with an expert local guide.
Our Cycle Challenge is special
Cycle unspoilt country lanes and by turquoise blue Caribbean seas
The CSC Cycle Cuba Challenge is especially unique among the myriad of sponsored cycle rides around. Not only are the overall costs and minimum sponsorship lower than the others, but CSC’s Cycle Cuba Challenge also includes educational and cultural visits, and raises money to help end the blockade of Cuba and funds projects directly in the country itself.
Take part in this year’s Challenge and you will be supporting the work of Cuba Solidarity Campaign; raising funds for the Abel SantamarĂ­a School in Havana for visually impaired children, and you will deliver vital educational materials direct to the school – a highlight of the trip for many past participants.
You’re not too old, or too unfit to do it!

You don’t need to be super fit, just healthy and active enough to ride a bike in warm weather and follow a basic training programme for a few weeks before you go. Past participants have ranged in age from 17 to 66, many of whom had not cycled any long distances before signing up. Taking part in the Challenge is a great incentive to help you get fit too!
Value for money
Visit immaculately preserved colonial towns
The total cost of the 12 day tour includes international flights, accommodation, a dedicated support team including a cycle tour manager, a fully qualified mechanic and English speaking local guide, all transfers, packed lunches on ride days, most meals, plus entrance to cultural and historic visits.

When is it?
This year the 12 day trip runs from 5 - 17 November 2015. Participants are asked to pay a£199 registration fee + raise £2699 minimum sponsorship, which includes all tour costs.
If you have any other questions about the Cycle Challenge, you can find out more by clicking the Cycle Cuba Challenge link here, email, or call the office Monday – Friday 10am – 5pm and speak to Rob or Trish who will be able to answer all your questions.
We look forward to seeing you on the road in November!
PS. Just in case you need anymore encouragement, here’s a short film made by one of the 2013 Cycle Challenge participants.
