Each tour is authentic and unique. We need to “stand in your shoes”, understand your needs and combine this with our own tastes. That´s why designing a tours is challenging for us. The result is fantastic: An interesting outdoor activity that allows you to see Havana in a unique way from a bike seat.
Our customer’s reviews are excellent. They point to us as being a “homely team” and “great guides”. It will be fun for you to understand Cuban life. We have really good and funny tales to tell.
Most of our bicycles are second hand, but they are equipped with good components. It is impossible to buy new bikes that are good quality here in Cuba. As workers in the emerging private sector, we don’t have the ability to import. We get bicycles one by one thanks to foreign travelers, in local craigslist and by traveling to others countries.
We also have pedal-assisted e-bikes. These electric bikes give the cyclist an extra help – a push – to go uphill and to cycle into headwind. The engine, almost hidden, is pretty light to make long distances easier.
The bicycles are our world, within it we put all our effort into maintaining it well so that you can feel good.
Ruta Bikes is located in 152, 16th Street, on the corner of 13th Street in Vedado (the most popular neighbourhood) in Havana. We are in a big house next to a parish church that was never-finished, opposite the “Vuelo Lam” park. On the left side of the property we have our shop and bike garage, also this is where our meeting point is located.
