A Couple of Weeks in Western Cuba

Viva Cuba Libre
By Jeff Kruys and Cassie Frass
#646 - posted Sunday January 25, 2015 by Neil Gunton

"A few months ago, I started doing Saturday group rides in Victoria, and met Cassie who was riding a Surly LHT and had done some touring, most notably down the Pacific coast to San Francisco, and also around the Selkirk Loop in the BC Kootenays with a couple of friends (see the journal here). She's American (from Chico, CA) and has been working in astronomy research at the observatory in Victoria for the last few years. She mentioned that she was interested in going to Cuba for a bike trip in March or April (the best climate months apparently) while she was still in Canada, but didn't want to go alone. I said 'sign me up!'" - read this journal
