National Geographic photographer and Cuba expert to speak on Motorcycle Touring in Cuba at BMW Motorcycles of Riverside
September 24, 2017
Come hear motojournalist, National Geographic photographer and tour leader, and Cuba expert Christopher P. Baker speak about ‘Motorcycle Touring in Cuba’ at BMW Motorcycles of Riverside, November 15, 2017 (6-7:30pm).
Chris will regale stories of his three-month, 7,000-mile journey through Cuba in 1996 when, as a journalist, he shipped his BMW R100GS to Havana to research the Moon Cuba guidebook. His journey also resulted in publication of a literary travelog, Mi Moto Fidel: Motorcycling Through Castro’s Cuba (National Geographic Adventure Press).
Ever since that journey, he had a dream of leading group motorcycle tours of Cuba for U.S. citizens. Chris made that a reality in 2012 when he secured a license from the U.S. Treasury Department to operate ‘people-to-people’ programs in Cuba.
Chris will explain about the 8- to 14-day motorcycle tours in Cuba that he will lead for Edelweiss Bike Travel in 2018 and beyond.Tags: adventure, adventure motorcycling, bay of pigs, bmw, christopher baker, cuba, cuba expert, guidebook, harley, harley davidson, havana, moon, motojournalist, motorcycle, motorcycle tours, motorcycling, national geographic, people-to-people, touring, tours, travel
