Overview

 

AN ALL INCLUSIVE CYCLING VACATION - morning for a cycling trip and afternoons to relax in your resort with your accompanying family members/friends/spouse or chill with the other Jamaica Vibz cyclists.

The Jamaica Vibz Ride, based in Ocho Rios, will take cyclists on a 3 day, escorted bike ride across the scenic Eastern northcoach and interior of the island of Jamaica. 

There will be some fast flats and a few climbs, but 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.


NO ONE IS EVER ALONE ON THE ROAD BY THEMSELVES EVER!

This is a concierge service tour with pros as tour leaders. We ride in usually 2-3 different pace level groups , all

covering the same distance. For those looking for a shorter and easier ride,  we recommend our Cycle Negril Event.

Here are the estimated miles and feet of climbing!

 


 

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/fruit stall, visit with  a rasta medicine man and you have the option to climb a 600ft waterfall!

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

Itinerary

 

DAY 1 - ARRIVAL- Montego Bay airport MBJ

We highly recommend to arrive a day earlier or at least 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 recomnend 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. 

   5:45-6:30pm   Welcome Meeting at the stage, Riu Ocho Rios

   7:00pm             Dinner and evening at leisure in  your hotel

DAY 2 - Ride#1 - Welcome Ride + Dunn's River Falls- 26.50 miles/1267 ft

Easy paced introductory ride to get you aclimatized to Jamaica!  Fairly flat with  some gentle rollers today. Highlight is our visit to Dunns River Falls for some adventure (optional).

 

Travel through the garden Parish of St Ann, with scenic views of the Caribbean as your backdrop, along smooth gently undulating, roads.  We stop near the end of the ride at the island's number on attraction: The magnificent Dunns River Waterfalls. With the help of a guide you can climb right to the top of the falls. It is refreshing and invigorating. Most persons carry spare kit to put on after the climb for the short 4 mile ride back to the resort.

For those who do not wish to climb the falls, you exit the ride when we pass the hotel, about 4 miles prior to reaching the falls.
