Overview

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

The Jamaica Reggae Ride 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 pros as tour leaders. 


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!

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

DAY 1 - Thursday -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.
