Thanks, I put up the blog back in 2012, and have only made small updates from third party reports since then. It must be a bit out of date by now.

Bonjour Gilles, for the past couple of years, we have been going to Martinique for our bike spring training, my husband is the one riding with our two girls, age 12 and 10. They usualy ride from 25 to 70km per day. We loved Martinique, we thought it was safe, and people were well behave at the wheel. Do you think its the same in Antigua, do you recomande we go there this year. Is the Island mostly french or english speeking?Thanks for you help

i AM COMING TO ANTIGUA NEXT FEBRUARY AND I HAVE THE SAME QUESTION - IS ANTIGUA RECOMMENDED FOR GOOD ROAD CYCLING? i AM PLANNING TO BRING MY ROAD BIKE AND AM COMFORTABLE RIDING DISTANCES OF 30 TO 75KMS.pRIMARY CONCERN IS ROAD SAFETY.

The roads are not fantastic by any means, and the drivers aren't much better. But, I did see a guy riding in full gear on a road bike near St. John. I'd say a mountain bike with a road setup would be best.

Ageed, the roads in Antigua are just about as safe as one is careful. Vehicle size frequently matters more than road rules. it is quite fun but certainly not without some traffic risks.

I'm a local Antiguan, I used to cycle (GT Transeo 2.0 [Hybrid]) often in 2013- to early 2014, but I stopped because of a few collisions I heard of involving cyclists. I find your site quite interesting because you've obviously been to places in Antigua that I still have yet to see. Just a question though, I notice you reference a village called Belsheda on a couple of your pages, but I'm wondering if you intended to refer to Bethesda, which is on the way to Willoughby Bay from Portworks Dam/New Field.

Thanks for putting together great descriptions of hiking trails on Antigua. They give me some great ideas for upcoming visit. I guess one more thing that I would love to see is coordinates for parking areas for the trails, but then I can probably figure these things out once I arrive.

Up Mount Obama today. Sunny and not too hot. To confirm, you can walk around the outside of the cell tower fence, and have great north and south views. From the north side, the trail is marked with red, yellow, and blue ribbon. Very easy to follow.

I also hiked Mt. Obama using the trail from the North side. Luckily I parked outside of the gate, so I had no problem, but also I ran into some workers and they were kind enough to drive me to the trailhead and told me about the gate being locked around noon. I thought the views at the top were ok, but not really comparable to those we got at the top of Shirely Heights. I actually tried exploring South Loop Trail following day but lost track of trail markers near banana field. However I also discovered an unnamed trail off South Loop Trail and on the 3rd I hiked it with my son. It went up the ridge fairly close to what the map on this site calls "Presumed Ridge to Valley Trail." I ended up marking all the trails / paths I walked on OpenStreetMap and one can now download a gpx for Mt. Obama Trail from WaymarkedTrails that uses OSM data, take a look at it here: https://hiking.waymarkedtrails.org/#route?id=7167893

Hi Gilles, I've emailed a couple of times. Did you receive my emails? I'm still interested. Paul
