Training for our Trip

We finally booked our next trip. I am so excited to be going to Cuba again with our bikes. Last winter, we joined CanBiCuba for a two-week guided cycling tour which was fabulous. You can read all about that trip here.

This winter we will be taking our bikes and staying at Club Amigo Marea del Portillo an all-inclusive beach resort surrounded by the Sierra Maestra mountains. This resort is located at the end of the South Coast road (our favourite route from the tour). It is quiet, rugged and perfect for cycling. We plan to explore the whole area within a 50 km radius on our bikes. There are plenty of route options. We'll just have to be careful to pack enough water and spare tubes since we'll be on our own this time.

Of course, now that we've booked, it's time to start Training for our Trip. My husband pumped up our tires on our 'trainer' bikes today. Tonight we rode indoors for the first time this winter. We're currently watching season 1 of a series called Longmire. It's a perfect distraction to take our minds off indoor riding. 

Our gym is well equipped with a comfy bed for our poodle, exercise mats, exercise balls, weights and a television. It was actually fun riding tonight. I managed 35 minutes with 10 minutes of stretching while my husband rode the full 45 minutes then finished up with some weight lifting. I think Training for our Trip is the best kind of fun.
