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  Runaway 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 covid associated protocols.

WE must choose options that are safe for all riders. This is a GROUP Event. If you would like a specific route, pace etc,  we will be happy to create a private ride that will fit your requirements. Our aim  is to please!

 

Long  distance; you should be able to maintain 16 mph on the flat in order to do this  Metric Century.

Grand Bahia vs Luxury Bahia..what's  the difference?
What's the difference between the Grand and Luxury? Nothing that  major. Its smaller details but it doesnt  make the Grand any less Grand. Luxury is a smaller property so the lobby is small, with cold towel welcome, personalized check  in  and concierge  services. Grand has a very large lobby that is expansive and open with nice shops and sports bar adjoining.   If you stay at Luxury you have access to the Grand. Luxury is adults only and has more choice at the bar and also includes 24hour room service.  All  rooms at both resorts are the same size. All junior suites.  Both resorts have great seaviews . Note that the flat TVs in the rooms are a bit smaller than average and its difficult to get into the special restaurants so be prepared for to dine at the  buffet which is extensive and with a wide variety of choice.

Itinerary

Cyclists:  2 route options are provided each  day - one short and one long. For those who ride under 16mph, only the shorter route is available.  Sag vehicles are provided for ALL  groups. Maps below are approximations and are subject to change depending local conditions.  This is a fun event, please don't get too geeky!

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 VIP arrival services/Fast track called 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. We group arrivals up to 45 minutes apart and it's an hour to the hotel, so a nice refresh in the lounge is just perfect. Its important to book it early because it often gets sold out early.
