Bicycles are a popular mean of transportation amongst Cubans. In addition to taking you from one place to another on your own schedule, a bike ride allows you to admire thoroughly the city sights and the urban landscape. There are many popular routes in Havana to go cycling, including the historical route through Old Havana, the modern and hectic area of Vedado, or the windy coast by the Malecón promenade.

If you want to get away from taxis in Cuba, maybe you could choose a bike as your transportation inside the city. Here we show you a review of the top bike rental companies in Havana.
