Cycling

Well, Barbados is most probably not the first destination coming into someone's mind when planning a holiday associated with bicycle riding. And it is fairly unknown that race bicycling as well as mountain biking is very popular amongst locals on this Caribbean island. But Barbados has quite a history of successful competitors as well as a number of excellent bike routes and tracks.

When the weather turns miserable in northern hemispheres, the wonderful climate of Barbados, which is never too hot and never too cold, with year round temperatures of approx. 28°C are fundamental reasons for someone to choose Barbados as a cycling destination.

The beauty of the landscape where cycling is fun in Barbados is unbelievable. No matter whether cycling high above the east coast with the Atlantic Ocean always in sight, climbing up the steep hill to St. John's Church, riding down roads framed by lush, tropical vegetation into the surfer's paradise Bathsheba, cruising along the East Coast Road, or climbing the "almost mountains" up to Cherry Tree Hill or Apes Hill, simply too much to list, it's always breathtaking!

When having chosen Inchcape as your holiday home in Barbados, you are staying with the people who brought windsurfing to Barbados and started putting it on the windsurfing world-map. The owners have quite a sports history in windsurfing, surfing, tennis, cycling, golf, soccer, etc. and cater very much to the sports oriented client.

We gladly recommend our cycling guests different routes and trips to various parts of the island. Those are a great mix of trips and of varying degrees in difficulty.

We also suggest trips combining sport and pleasure at the same time - for example, ending the trip at one of Barbados' best lunch/brunch place, one of the most luxurious hotel of the island, such as Sandy Lane, Coral Reff or Royal Pavillion, where one can enjoy a Sundays' brunch of no comparison or just do a ride to Bathsheba's restaurants and beach bars, where one can overlook incredible scenery and recover from riding the east coast hills by having lunch and watching the hard core surfers ripping Bathsheba's powerful surf.

There are plenty of roads good enough for race bicycles, but for those who want to enjoying the beauty of nature at the same time,  a mountain bike might be the piece of equipment you want to bring, as it increases the possibilities of combining better and worse road sections and off road tracks into a days' trip.
