Cuba, Holguín in Loops

A lovely scenario!

What better than the heat of Cuba to kick off the cycling year? And to fully appreciate the beauty of Holguin province, you are based at the same hotel all week long, with the ocean close by. From here, you follow various loops, passing through Playa Blanca, Gibara — where the observation tower provides a magnificent view —, Banes — dubbed the architectural capital of Cuba — and La Trocha, near the town of Holguín. Sometimes flat, sometimes undulating, the route is always gorgeous. And at the end of the day, the pleasures of the beach await you. A lovely scenario!
