Today sees us heading along the northcoast of the island, along perfectly paved roads, that goes through historic places like Runaway Bay, where slaves escaped by boats, and Discovery Bay where Christopher Columbus first set foot on Jamaican soil. There are a few climbs along the way!
Just before cycling into Ocho Rios, there is an option to stop at the island's number on attraction: Dunns River Waterfalls. (Entrance fee not included) Here the water cascades from 660ft straight into the warm Caribbean sea, and we have the challenge to climb to the very top! Its as exhilarating as it is invigorating and not to be missed!

This morning’s start from Ocho Rios goes along the scenic eastern coast. The vegetation gets more lush and even more breathtaking. We pass through Oracabessa (Golden Head) and Port Maria, areas made famous by Ian Fleming who created his famous hero ‘James Bond’ whilst at his vacation home near here. We cycle past banana plantations and small towns, with spectacular coastal views, framed by the distant Blue Mountains.
Port Antonio, home to the rich and famous, still retains its quiet, laid-back charm.
We celebrate the end of our ride with a buffet lunch and time to relax on the beach at Frenchman's Cove.
Celebratory certificates are issued here!
