Is anyone going on this trip? If so, it would be lovely to hear from you.
looking forward to meeting you
Hi Kay and Niel, I'm also on this trip. This will be my 3rd cycling trip with Exodus - others were Croatia in 2007 and Vietnam last year which were both amazing, but I'm really looking forward to visiting Cuba as it's been on my wish list for a long time. I can't believe it's only 4 weeks away! How are the preparations going for you both??
Hi Niel and Orla
Thanks for the responses and phew, glad I won't be on my own! This is my 'maiden' cycling trip with Exodus, however, training has been going well .. I've done lots of cycling on a regular basis since February of this year so feel fit enough, although slightly nervous of the hurricane season in Cuba!! I can't believe it's only 4 weeks away either and beginning to think about what to pack. Very much looking forward to meeting you. Since both of you have previously done a cycling trip(s) with Exodus, what one golden tip would you give me?
My golden tip is get a camel backpack or similar – they come in all shapes and sizes, depending if you want to carry anything with you other than water. It means that you can drink while you ride without having to stop…..
It sounds like you are the experianced one - I must admit that I really wanted to visit Cuba before Catro departs stage left (or possibly right after his interview recently saying communism has failed). I think he should survive for the next few weeks at least.
I'd agree a Camelbak is very useful especially if it's really humid when you drink lots of water and handy for carrying some basics like sun cream (being Irish that's essential for my fair skin type!!), tissues or hand sanitiser although with group stops every 15-20km you never have to wait too long to access your things on the bus. But it's also handy to loop your camera through because my tip would be to keep your camera handy at all times. You'll see some amazing scenery and sights of day to day life as you cycle through the country - that's based on previous experience and I'm sure Cuba will be no different!
I hope we'll miss the hurricane season too, but I saw someone recommend www.stormpulse.com on one of the other posts, which might be worth keeping a check on...
