Overview

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

Cycle Jamaica is an all inclusive cycling  vacation  which  includes 4 nights stay at an all inclusive resort based in  Montego Bay, and 3 organized rides. 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.

We cater to ALL pace levels. If you are an elite cyclist, be prepared to be challenged by the island's top champions and if you are a newbie or intermediate cyclist, know that we make it fun for everyone and there is full service support at all times along the way. This is a concierge service tour  with ride leaders as escorts for each group.


NO ONE IS EVER ALONE ON THE ROAD BY THEMSELVES EVER! These are group rides. No rider is allowed in front 

of our designated lead rider who maintains the pace level. This is not a race. This is a FUN event. Please don't  stress

or get geeky. We are here to have fun!

Our stops are well planned so as to ensure everyone experiences the real Jamaica: we will have a rest stop at a local fruit stall. Enjoy coconut water straight from the  nut: the best rehydration ever!  Enjoy local roasted yams - as we pedal through "Usain country"! The Jamaican people are warm and genuinely friendly.  You'll get to meet them up close and in their real world!

We have two  ride distances each  day. Those in the  more moderate paced level will  be asked to join the  shorter ride distances and  allow  the faster cyclists to do the  longer distances.  We must control the amount of groups on the road at any one time and follow the durations allowed for the police and further protocols.

WE must choose options that are safe for all riders. this is a GROUP Event. If our routes and pace guidelines do not suit you, we recommend you book a PRIVATE ride where we can accomodate you better.

DAY 1 - ARRIVAL- Montego Bay airport MBJ

We highly recommend to arrive on the earliest flight you can get into MBJ airport so that you have time to relax and enjoy the hotel facilities and get your bike set up.   We also  highly recommend you book the arrival services of Club Mobay for so many reasons: you are met right off the plane and join the fast track  through  immigration and customs and then have a comfortable place to relax and have a snack and drink before heading off to your hotel as you await everyone to clear through. Its important to book it early because it often gets sold out early.
