  Bicycling Cuba: Fifty Days of Detailed Rides from Havana to Pinar Del Rio and the Oriente, authors Wally Smith & Barbara Smith, Countryman Pr, November 2002. 328 pages.

In this delightful and very practical guide, the authors outline, kilometer by kilometer the best places to eat, sleep, sightsee, and even avoid. The text is divided into five parts: "In and Out of Havana," "Pinar del Rio," "Central Cuba," "The Oriente," and "Connecting the Regions of Cuba." The authors sum it up best in their introduction: "If you come to Cuba looking for evidence of a police state, inefficient bureaucracy, and dissatisfied people, you can find it. If you look for evidence of a uniquely idealistic society in which people have a strong sense of community, respect their government, and are trying to solve problems without sacrificing the achievements of their revolution, you can find that too. Let's ride!"
