You were asked if you had a GPS... is using one not permitted in Cuba? Any explanation is appreciated for other travelers knowledge, as well as myself. Cuba is on my bucket list, although it won't be on a bike and renting a car will be our mode of transport.... I'm a GPS dependent guy backed up with paper maps. As a suggestion, you might consider carrying a roll of electrical tape. I seem to manage a use for some on every bike trip I do. Can be used for emergency first-aid wrap too. Again, thanks for taking the limited time you have to update this RR. Very much appreciated!! Seeing the country through your eyes is our gateway to Cuba!! Edit: Ah ha! After reading your next post I see you're well prepared. Gorilla tape! I'm going to add this to my bag of tool goodies. 4-5 ft wrapped around a 1/2 x 2 1/2" dowel will do just fine.
