Black Girls do  Bike Jamaica

Overview

 

The Jamaica Reggae Ride is an all  inclusive  cycling vacation based in Montego Bay, Jamaica. We have 3 days

of organized  rides from your resort, with various distances and paces to suit all  levels of cyclists.   Black Girls do bike participants have their own booking link which entitles this group to extra discounts and perks. Kindly contact the Shero that heads your Chapter for your personalized discount code.

 

This is a concierge service tour with pros as tour leaders. We ride in usually 2-3 different pace level groups, and your choice from two distances each ride day. All Black Girls do Bike Participants get an  additional training ride FREE of charge!

It is very important to note that our ride is  not like your typical charity ride in the USA. You are not given a route guide and make your way to the rest stop. We ride together!  NO ONE IS EVER ALONE ON THE ROAD BY THEMSELVES EVER!

Our stops are well planned so as to ensure everyone experiences the real Jamaica: we will have a rest stop at a farmer's market, have a visit with local school children and visit  with a rastafarian family! The Jamaican people are warm and genuinely friendly.  You'll get to meet them up close and in their real world!

There is time in the afternoons to meet up with fellow cyclists, spouses and friends to explore the island's many  attractions, relax at the spa and to enjoy the facilities  of  your all inclusive resort.

So our rides  are designed with the perfect combination of riding time and resort relax time!

So come on, let's ride!
Let us show you why Jamaica is truly the "heartbeat" of the Caribbean
