Welcome to Cuba 8, a nonprofit bicycle advocacy project in Havana, Cuba. We are part of Artecorte, a local development nonprofit organization, and our goal is to promote the use of bicycles, contribute to the development of healthy habits on the Cuban population and to stimulate the bicycle culture as a means for socialization.

Our work

We promote the use of bicycles as a legitimate mean of transportation through several free public events. We organize free bike rides, bike ride lessons, and repair workshops. We help to channel donations from abroad to the cycling community in Cuba. Contact us if you want to support the Cuban bicycle community!

Who we are

We are part of Artecorte, an organization with 20 years of experience in nonprofit projects in Cuba, in collaboration with bicycle enthusiasts and bike repair shops from all over Havana.

Why Cuba 8?

Cuba 8, located on the number 8 of Cuba street, in Old Havana, was the most famous bicycle shop in Havana, open from 1942 to the early ’80s.

As part of our work to rescue and preserve the history of our community, Artecorte researched its history and brought it back to life in the form of a nonprofit bicycle advocacy project aimed to promote the use of bicycles in Cuba.
