In Colombia cycling is a passion and a cheap and accessible means of transportation. Every day many Colombians ride their bikes to work in the countryside, crossing long mountain passes in the highlands of the Andes, riding old iron heavy bikes, with ponchos and rubber boots, which is how the country’s strongest cyclists have been forged through the years. This is the reason why Colombia is home to many of the strongest climbers in the world – the so named ‘escarabajos’. High altitude, mountainous terrain and an inexplicable passion for two wheels has been a perfect recipe for climbers over the years.
So cycling in Colombia is, yes, a lot of climbing! But also, unimaginable landscapes, unforgettable people and a unique culture to remember. Traveling in Colombia on a bicycle will allow you to stop in towns where tourism has not yet reared its head and because of that you’ll be able to witness life as it really is – untouched, undisturbed and real. You’ll be exposed to a mixture of humble hard-working people, flavors, music, customs and much more. Whether you join an MTB cycling tour or a road cycling tour, you’ll harvest a range of images and memories that will stay in your mind for a long, long time.
Crossing Colombia on a bicycle will take you to a lot of different regions, from the high-altitude Cundiboyacense plateau, where Bogotá is situated, to the Coffee Region, to the flat lands of the Valle del Cauca, to the mountains of Antioquia or the north coast. You’ll have to cross hard obstacles like the legendary mountain pass of Letras, which is the longest climb in the world (80km/50miles) a physical but mostly a mental challenge. During the ride, however, you’ll learn about coffee, sugar cane and our agriculture in general, you’ll visit our national parks and the most iconic cities of the country. Cycling in Colombia is about as a complete adventure as anyone could wish for during their visit.
