Jamaica: Cycling - Mountain Biking
Clear seas, Cocktails, Rastafarianism and Reggae
Jamaica’s mountainous terrain means that cycling in Jamaica is a popular pastime with tourists. Mountain biking in Jamaica is especially popular with a number of resorts and tourist areas offering their own tours: Blue Mountain Bicycle tours Ltd in Ocho Rios is one of the most well known, and offers an all-day cycle journey which begins over 5,000 feet up in the mountains at 8 o’clock in the morning; the entire journey is downhill and finishes at around 6 o’clock in the evening. The entire day costs €70. There are many others offering cycle tours across the island, including Manfred’s Jamaican Mountain Bike tours in the parish of St Elizabeth, and Rusty’s Xcellent Adventures in Negril. If you want to go cycling in Jamaica independently, hotels and resorts themselves are likely to be able to offer bike hire.
