Final statistical summary of Cuba biking trip

My Cuba biking trip is finished. I was away, with my 1983 Schwinn bike (bought in Hanoi on my last bike trip), from the UK for 32 days and spent 27 of them in the saddle. I covered 1463 miles (2340km) with a total vertical ascent, according to Strava of 39,231 feet (well over 7 miles or nearly 12,000 metres). The accommodation cost $878  (£584) excluding most meals & drinks.

Here is my spreadsheet, clicking on the link in Places should take you to the days pictures on Picasa, clicking the Strava link will take you to the full Strava profile for the day eg route, elevation profile, speed etc etc:

  1. Well done Geoff! I’ve told a number of cyclist about your 83 Schwinn, its history, and so forth. It’s about the ride and the rider! Good stuff!

    1. Thanks for the comment. As Lance would say “It’s not about the bike” although in his case it clearly was about something else 🙁
