ABOUT US

Our Story

Cyclotá was created out of a deep love that our founder Tomás Castrillón has for both cycling and his home country of Colombia. Since 2009 Tomás has been sharing his passion with guests from around the world. Our goal has always been very simple. We want you to all the richness and diversity Colombia has to offer by bicycle in a safe, fun, and friendly way.

Why Ride in Colombia?

Colombia will surprise you in so many ways. You are guaranteed to meet the warmest and friendliest of people. You will be constantly greeted by a genuine interest in your exploration of the country by bike. The landscape in Colombia is nothing short of spectacular. Endless hills and valleys await you. The best part about riding through this country is that you will move at a pace that will allow you to fully appreciate all the natural wonder. High elevation plains, desert escarpment country, coffee fields and pine forests are just some of the ecosystems you will encounter. The roads are surprisingly quiet. Over the years of riding in Colombia we have curated some of the best rides that you can imagine. We have painstakingly chosen roads that have light traffic and offer the best views. Cycling is Colombia's second most popular sport after soccer. And it shows on the roads. Drivers are careful and patient and will often cheer you on as you climb one of the renowned hills. Colombia is blessed with amazing cuisine. The food is fresh and healthy. Imagine tropical fruits, incredible coffee and great local traditional plates that appeal to any palate. We can easily accommodate if you are vegetarian or have other dietary needs. The weather is perfect. Colombia is located near the Equator so you can be assured of sun and warmth. But because most of our riding is in the higher elevations the temperature is quiet pleasant. Imagine the perfect Mediterranean or Californian late spring day. And lastly, the cycling, simply put, is world class. It's no wonder that pro cycling teams from around the globe flock to Colombia to train in the off season. They too are drawn by everything that makes this country the ideal cycling holiday destination.
