Trip Itinerary

Day 1: Into the valley
We will begin our journey high in the Savanna where Bogotá lies. Early morning, we will pick you up at your hotel and transfer just outside the city searching for quiet roads that will make up for a great first ride. After a short warm up, we will face a first challenge of 4,5 kms climbing. A local climb, with frequent visitors, is the perfect way to break the ice of this trip and get the first glimpse of riding in the altitude. After a rolling section we will have a second and final climb for the day, just to finish with a long, twisty descent. A final sting in the tail, will take us to our beautiful hotel regarded by most of our customers as one of the highlight of their trip, that also happens to be home of one of the best coffee growers in Colombia. Distance: 85 kms Altitude gain: 1100 mts
Day 2: The big day
The stage is nothing short of a spectacular ride. After leaving our hotel, we will rejoin the bigger road we parted ways with yesterday, and keep descending before we tackle the first climb of the day. An easy climb will be a welcomed way to wake up our muscles. Following a smooth descent in a small road we will have our first real challenge of the day: 3 kms before arriving to our coffee stop. After, we will surmount the Cordillera on a twisty road for 35 kms, covered in the traces of the lush vegetation of the rain forest, with great views of Andes mountains further away. As we reach the top a surprise will be waiting for us: a lovely view of the Salto del Tequendama, the waterfall formed by the Bogotá’s river. Further down the road we will still have some minor challenges to finish our ride, where we can pack and transfer back to Bogotá. Distance: 92 kms Altitude gain: 2500 mts

Frequently asked questions

Who will be guiding? We are experienced cyclist, with a deep local knowledge and many hours of training on and off the bike to provide you with a great experience and our main goal will be providing you a great customer service. Where will we be staying? A great cycling experience is only possible staying at the right places. We have cherry picked only the best hotel available. We will stay in a beautiful coffee farm with unique cabins inside the plantation. If I’m renting, what are the bike options? As cyclist ourselves we appreciate a beautiful and efficient bicycle to tackle demanding stages. We rely on Argon’s 18 Krypton bikes to do the job of take you to the summit with relative ease, but we also appreciate their steady manners on the way down. Their geometry is a balanced act that we have come to appreciate a lot over time, and so have our customers. What’s the weather like? Perhaps the most difficult question we have to answer is how’s the weather like. Although there are rainy and sunny seasons in Colombia, mountain weather is extremely unpredictable, and can change in very few kilometers. We would suggest having a wide range of layers available. We can very well be riding at some point during this tour at 32ºC but some other sections the weather can also at 8ºC with rain. Your guides will tell in advance their best estimate of the situation, but even then, there’s not 100% accuracy. We will rely in the support to sort out these situations. What should I bring? Related to the previous answer, it’s going what to bring will depend on personal preferences. However, and trying to keeping it light, there’s a minimum of basic stuff you should plan to bring when it comes down to cycling, but for this trip we would suggest: • 2 bib shorts • 2 jerseys • Arm warmers • Base layer • 1 (rain)jacket • 1 helmet • 1 pair of sunglasses • 1 pair of riding shoes • 2 pairs of socks • (Full finger)Gloves • Sunblock • Bug repellent
