Many tourists who visit the Varadero area, come with their road bikes so to extend their biking season. Although the road ways have small shoulder areas, most of the traffic consisting of cars, horse and buggys, scooters, and motor bikes will be respectful of your presence on the road. The Cuban biking community within Varadero, Santa Marta, Cardenas and Matanzas City is steadily climbing. It appears most road bikes that are owned by Cubans are either purchased from a tourist or given to them. Cuban road bikers are known to be great unofficial guides as they too enjoy the bike. Be prepared to bring all of your bike needs with you, pumps, tires, tools, as they will not be easy to purchase in this area.
