DJBB is a 4 day cycling event, riding around Jamaica, which started October 2020. We started as a group of recreational cyclists, who love to ride, and are always looking for the next challenge. So what better way than a 324 mile, 12700 feet of elevation and 4 glorious days of riding your bicycle, covering 13 of Jamaica's 14 parishes. And what makes it more fun is that we are riding around the beautiful coast of Jamaica and staying in some of the best resort areas.
DJBB has become the best bicycle tour vacation in Jamaica among all sightseeing tours. Definitely a bucket list item for all cyclists to look forward to every year, as you challenge yourself to do your best
What better reward can you ask for, after a morning in the saddle, than to relax by the beach, pool, or get a massage on the beach...cycling and then relaxation on a beach. What better way to pass the time.
And at the end of each ride, we always know we will have the best Jamaican food waiting on us to rejuvenate and build back our strength for the next day...and the best part is because we burnt thousands of calories while riding, we can enjoy without the guilt.
The sponsor hotels are where the core cyclists will be staying and where we will be arriving and leaving from. These hotels are all Jamaican owned, in keeping with the theme of DJBB, and are some of the best small hotels in their locations. We encourage all to stay there (while space is available) as this is where all unofficial activities will happen. These hotels will be specifically chosen to ensure that participants experience the real Jamaican experience
Our major partner is of course the Jamaica Tourist Board, with whom the DJBB concept was concieved when it became a reality in October 2020 and was very successful in achieving the objectives of promoting healthy and safe tourism while highlighting what we call the "hidden gems" of Jamaica. Places where Jamaicans frequent but are not highly marketed internationally, and where us Jamaicans know you get some of the best authentic experiences, whether it be gastronomy or our sponsor hotel experience
No DJBB ride can happen without the support of our major partners. These are:
- Party Blaster's Pro, which provides party décor services and has been instrumental in the development and execution of our branding and marketing activities
Of course no DJBB ride would be complete without the gastronomy experience, as we are not just about the bicycle but importantly discovering the Jamaican experience on a bicycle and a very important part of that is the food experience. Cycling around the island allows us to do so without any guilt. Our partners for this are amongst the best in the gastronomy experience. We are carefully selecting Gastronomy partners for this ride and wil update soon
Our ride also takes us to the coconut and fruit vendor, Smokeez by the Sea, Border and Middle Quarters for authentic Jamaican road side dishes
