Many cyclists want to get away and ride but then...what happens to the children? the non cycling spouse?  the answer is JAMAICA VIBZ ride.  This ride is the perferct combination of a resort vacation with morning rides that leave the  entire afternoon free to share with family and explore or  relax in the  hotel.  


The All Inclusive Jamaica Vibz ride  is operated by the 36 year old company Holiday Services Ltd, a covid certified and licensed tour operator.


The ride is now part of an all-inclusive vacation package. This way cyclists can come with their families and spouses, go off their their morning ride whilst their families relax in the resort and the cyclist can rejoin them by lunchtime. Its the perfect combination.


The Jamaica Vibz Ride is based out of OCHO RIOS.
Families are welcomed.  We have special plans for non cyclists and cycling lessons too

for the children and adults who might want to learn to ride or to  be a better cyclist!


What is so very unique about ALL our rides is the fact that  NO ONE IS EVER ALONE ON THE ROAD BY THEMSELVES ! Ever!  the customary  printed  " route guides" are not needed here  because you are always escorted. THe ride caters to ALL pace levels! Usually we have 1-2 groups, each with its own sag.  We are also offering  training after the ride in the afternoons so  that Dad can return  and go with  his spouse or his child and they can all participate together. Or of course, non cyclists can also just relax in the  resort.   

This is a concierge service tour with local experienced and pro cyclists participating as tour leaders, so they assist cyclists over challenging hills so everyone can achieve their goals., regardless of their pace level.  


Our stops are well planned so as to ensure everyone experiences the  real Jamaica: we will have a rest stop at a farmer's market, have a  visit with local school children and you have the option to climb a  cascading 600ft waterfall! 


The Jamaican people are warm and genuinely  friendly.  You'll get to meet them up close and in their real world!


There is time in the afternoons to meet up with fellow cyclists,  spouses and friends to explore the island's beaches, restaurants and  attractions or to take in a massage or visit a spa.



So come on, let's ride!

Let us show you why Jamaica is truly the "heartbeat" of the Caribbean

I had a wonderful time; great new friends, good accomodations and food, and some good cycling! Thanks!
By Arlyne S for DISCOVER JAMAICA - Combo - Mobay+OchoRios on 30 Nov, 2021
Cycle Jamaica Ocho Rios was incredible, my only complaint is the time it took us to get organized to go into Dunns River Falls. Apart from that single hiccup, the rest of the trip was flawless. Storm and Rayne do a great job of running a high functioning operation that has a lot of logistics to take into consideration. Each days ride was challenging and fun, the ride leaders and their assistant riders kept us safe. The hotel (RIU Ocho Rios) was fun and food was good. 10/10 highly recommended, and this will now become an annual tradition for me and my group of riders from Houston, next year we will probably double in size because all the folks who didn't make this trip, will be hearing about this trip for the next few months and it will make them want to come on the next one. Big up Cycle Jamaica!

Cycle Jamaica provided a great adventure and experience on the Island of Jamaica! I can't wait to visit again. viewing the country side from a bicycle was a memorable experience! Jennifer and her support team were great throughout and helpful at every point along the way! I would recommend this vacation for any cyclist!
By Toney R for Cycle Jamaica - MontegoBay/ Reggae Ride on 17 Nov, 2021
This trip was simply AMAZING! The Cycle Jamaica staff and ride leaders were uber accommodating and took care of any and every issue that came up. The hotel was wonderful and I felt very safe, as far as Covid-19 protocols were concerned. I have stayed at that resort before, but they redesigned everything. So much so that I didn't recognize the place at first! . Very happy that I made the decision to attend this event from back in March. Having a very reasonable payment plan was the deciding factor for me. I will definitely return next year, and for the foreseeable future!

My 2nd trip doing Cycle Jamaica. The Rui accommodations were very good. The ride was exceptionally organized. Rest stops were adequately stocked. Plenty of sag vehicles and even an ambulance. This time there was recognition for riders both men and women, though not clear on the criteria for.the award. An excellent way for cyclists to see the country and enjoy great weather. Suggestions--police could better navigate the groups to provide even more safety measures for the riders. Hopefully if groups are smaller we could go from Montego Bay to Ochio. Doing that would require transportation back to Montego Bay.. Personalized commentary during the reception on riding abilities throughout the tour would be an added touch.
