While in Jamaica my wife and I went on the Blue Mountain Bicycle Tour. This was a grand adventure that started with a bus picking us up at our hotel and traveleing for an hour and a half through Ocho Rios and East to the Blue Mountains. While traveling, our driver kept up a continuous discourse on the Jamaican culture, politics, economics, history, and agriculture. It was very interesting and appreciated by all. We arrived after traveling up a winding one lane road that was about 3 inches wider than our bus. Arriving at the chalet built into the mountain side, we had a brunch(tasty) and were given our safety equipment. We also were introduced to Blue Mountain coffee learning how it grew, was harvested, and processed. We then went to the top of the mountain for our 18 mile trip downhill through a rainforest and coffee plantation. Our bikes were not the best but our tour guides did their best to make everyone comfortable. We started down the hill and my wife did not feel comfortable on the bike. She asked to sit in the bus that accompanied us but the guides came up with a very acceptable alternative. Soon she was riding down the mountain on the back of a bicycle built for two with one of the guides playing driver. We went through some amazing countryside that was so lovely with it's vibrant green life and sparkling waterfalls. We stopped for lunch and had a typical Jamaican meal of Jerk chicken, rice and beans and fruit. It was delicious. We then continued down the mountain stopping while the guides explained some of the herbs the locals used for medicine. Arriving at our destination we were treated to a cool dip in a mountain pool fed by a thirty foot waterfall. All in all it was a day full of adventure, learning, good food, and fun all included in the price. I recommend it to all.
