Edelweiss Motorcycle Touring in Cuba
Chosen as one of the world’s hottest ‘new’ destinations by Lonely Planet, the New York Times and Bloomberg News (among others), Cuba is enjoying a long-delayed status as destination du jour since the re-establishment of diplomatic relations with the United States in 2015. Combine that with the rapidly growing popularity of motorcycle touring and you have a recipe for a fantastic two-wheel adventure.
That’s why Edelweiss Bike Travel, the world’s leading motorcycle touring company, has launched 8- and 11-day tours of Cuba for U.S. motorcycle riders in partnership with acclaimed moto-journalist and Cuba expert Christopher P. Baker.
Hailed by National Geographic as “one of the world’s leading experts on Cuba travel and culture,” Baker has twenty years’ experience motorcycling in Cuba and will guide a number of departures especially for U.S. motorcycle riders. He has honed the Austrian company’s Cuba itineraries to the requirements for legal U.S. travel under the ‘People-to-People’ license category. Any U.S. citizen can participate.
With Baker as tour leader, participants are guaranteed unique and fascinating ‘people-to-people’ interactions with Cuban personalities from artists and baseball players to such harlistas (owners of pre-revolutionary Harley-Davidsons) as Baker’s friend Ernesto (son of ‘Che’) Guevara.
“Now is the time to visit Cuba. The risks of not doing so are very real,” says Baker, who gives ten reasons for U.S. citizens to visit Cuba now:
-Because finally you can… but will you still be able to tomorrow?
-To beat the crowds
-Because Cuba is changing
-All those incredible classic cars!
-Catch it while it’s frozen in time
-See socialism with your own eyes
-For Hav’an’a good time
-It’s not addicted to WiFi
-This is a fascinating moment in history
-Because it’s SAFE!
