At 8 am or 1 pm our guide awaits us with the e-bikes in the park Mariana Grajales, calle 23 / entre C y D, La Habana / Vedado, named after the mother of the revolution´s hero General Officer Antonio Maceo (1845-1896). As an alternative, an individual meeting point can be settled for closed groups. After a short introduction about the e-bikes, client’s bike adjustments to each individual height and some general information about the roads and rules of Cuban traffic, we are ready to begin our discovery-trip with the e-bikes. As you will quickly notice, the means of transportation in Cuba are different from what we are used to.

 

On our “Half day in Havana” – tour, you will visit in 4 hours the most popular spots and districts of Havana, and get to know the most interesting historical and cultural highlights. We ride our e-bikes through bustling streets surrounded by colonial buildings, classic American cars, sun and the tropical sea.

During these 4 hours, we ride through the animated and crowded Habana Vieja, Centro Habana, and also the elegant residential area of Vedado, with its plenty of architectural diversity. While cycling the oldest streets of the city, we pass the Capitol, the Central Park, the Museum of the Revolution and El Prado. We crawl through the maze of narrow streets of Habana Vieja, losing any sense of orientation, yet somehow arriving at the historic train station of Havana, in front of the famous birthplace of the poet, lawyer, and national hero, José Martí, who marked the history of Cuba in the 19th century.

During our excursion in Habana Vieja we cycle along the bay of Havana where the ferries set off and the cruisers, little by little, continue their conquest path toward Cuba. From the fortress “El Castillo de la Punta” we can see several hot spots at the other side of the bay, like the statue “El Cristo” and the fortresses “Castillo del Morro” and “San Carlos de la Cabaña”, while learning a bit more about the Cuban colonial history. From there we will travel along the Malecón, as many people say the largest and most beautiful promenade in the world, until we reach the biggest cemetery in America, and the third biggest in the world: the Columbus Cemetery or “Cementerio Colón”. Not to end a marvelous tour with the bad taste of a cemetery, we continue our tour to the park “Parque John Lennon” and maybe we are able to take some pictures with John. Afterwards we slowly return to our starting point. It is impossible to put more into a 4 hours ride, but at least the highlights of Havana are included.
