Remedios - Key Santa Maria
35km - Light
This is definitely one of the most surprising cycling rides to do in Cuba. Ever biked through the sea? Well this is your chance.
The cycling is about 60 km and very flat indeed. It can be hard if the wind is against you. Starting point is the village of Remedios. At the main square you have the beautiful colonial charm hotel Mascotte. At the copy of the statue of liberty we take the road that takes you cycling out of the village to Caibarien. After about 10 km you arrive at Caibarien where a giant concrete crab welcomes you. Here you take right. Cycling by the typical concrete apartment blocks and a small copy of the Paris Eiffel tower we arrive at the sea road. Here we take right.
After 4 km you arrive at a bridge and a very futuristic cross of roads. You have to get onto the bridge and get to the left in direction of the sea. After a few km you arrive at the enormous bridge road through the sea. It takes you in 45 km of bridges and patches of road won on the sea to the Cayo Las Brujas and Cayo Santa Maria.
There is a police check point where you have to show your passports.
At last after this unforgettable cycling experience you arrive at Cayo Santa Maria. There are 3 beach resorts of the Spanish chain Solmelia.
