    Love this story.  Love the pictures.  And I also love the fact that Cuba doesn’t have a huge North American influence.   I really hope to visit there someday….and definitely bring bikes!

    We had two wonderful trips to Cuba and know that the bikes that we left with friends there are really appreciated.  We were inspired to cycle Cuba by our friend Carl who is an amazing cycling senior.  He has cycled in Cuba for 7 trips and can kick my butt on a bicycle anytime.  Note also that there are buildings devoted to safe bicycle parking in most towns and all of our guest house hosts welcommed our bikes into the house.  Check out World Community http://worldcommunity.ca/.  They do excellent community to community work educating us as well as giving us the means to donate to Nicaragua and Cuba.

    I’ve always wanted to go to Cuba and heard it’s a nice place to ride.  I hope to get over there for some sun and cycling and I’ll have to look for working bikes as well.

    This is a facinating story and the pictures are just wonderful.  This reminds me of the time I spent in central America and would often see similar type bikes there.  The term “working bikes” is perfect.
