Jibocoa - Varadero

35km - Medium

This is a ride along the north coast between a low key beach resort and the famous beaches ofVaradero. 

It is a bit heavy with quite some variations. Take into account that the fast high way from Havan to Varadero is officially not accessible for bicycles so we need to take detours to avoid this road. 

Starting point is the Jibacoa all inclusive resort. The 4 star hotel has a nice stretch of beach and good services. Try diving here. It is for free.

You drive out of the hotel back to the main road called Via Blanca. Here you cross straight till the village Jibacoa del Norte. There is a parallel road that takes you along Canasi and other villages to Matanzas. The road is not very good so come prepaired in case of flat tyres. After about 40 km you arrive in Matanzas. 

You drive through the centre of town till you reach the other end. Here you take the carretera central on the fork to the right. You continue cycling on this road for about 25 km till the village Limonar. There you take left just after the bridge. This road takes you through nice countryside. 

After another 25 km of cycling you arrive at a fork where you take left and continue another 10 km till the town of Cardenas. A monument of a bicycle greets you at the entrance. It is a reminder how the bicycle saved transportation in Cuba after the disappearance of the Socialist Block in Europe that supplied petrol to Cuba. You continue through the town in direction of Varadero. 

After 10 km you arrive at Varadero. Here the best beaches and hotels of Cuba are waiting for you.
