As revealed by Autoevolution, these new female-only motorbike tours have been crafted by two U.S. companies and the first trip is already half-full, so the clock is ticking for those wanting to secure a place.

U.S. companies join forces to offer first all-women motorcycle tour to Cuba

Tapping into a previously untapped market, two U.S. tour companies have joined forces to offer female American travellers (and bike enthusiasts) with the first ever, fully-guided, women-only motorcycle tours through Cuba, taking in some of the country´s most inspiring site while also devoting some time to interact with the locals, attend educational workshops and be part of meaningful cultural exchanges.

Places for the first of these tours, which will be taking off on 8th March 2017, are already getting filled up fast and the nine-day journey has a packed scheduled of People-to-People exchanges, giving the female biking adventurers a full immersion into Cuban culture.

The two U.S.-based motorcycle tour companies responsible for the creation of this new two-wheeled Cuban adventure for ladies are MotoDiscovery and Women´s Motorcycle Tours, with the former having been organising international biking tours since 1981 and adding Cuba to its itinerary for the first time ever after been granted a license from the US Treasury Department.

Event organiser at Women´s Motorcycle Tours, Alisa Clickenger wanted to share her joy about the pioneering upcoming trip:

“Cuba has been calling me since was very young. Enchanted with the forbidden country so close and yet so far away, I’ve longed to visit her most of my life. In light of the recent shifts in the US and Cuban governments, I am extremely pleased with our timing. I don’t think there will be a better time to go. We definitely need to visit now.”

On his part, Skip Mascorro, founder of MotoDiscovery was also elated to share the news and explained how travelling Cuba on two wheels was one of the most uniquely fascinating ways to truly get to know this rich island and be able to engage with the locals.

In his very own words, he put it like this:

“Riding through the Cuban countryside, stopping in rural villages, tobacco farms, music and art schools proves a truly enriching and rewarding experience. “

The motorcycling journey through Cuba will give a few lucky American women the chance to not only soak up the beauty of the tropics, with Cuba´s scenic rural landscapes, beautiful coastal seascapes and eye-catching urban hotspots, but also to enjoy it at refreshing pace, with all of the riding being done on paved roads with little traffic.

The cost of the nine-day motorcycle tour package starts at $6,879 with a Suzuki 650 V-strom as standard. For other models, different pricing will apply. Those wanting to book their spot on the first of a series of all-women motorcycling Cuba tours should head to MotoDiscovery´s website and submit an application. Time is of the essence though, as spots are highly coveted and being rapidly filled.
