Ride one of the worlds most exciting cycling destinations – mountains, jungles, beaches & so very much more
In conjunction with Cyclota who will guide us through the best of Colombia
Join Fargo in Bogota to ride out 14 June 2021. This will be a fully guided trip with back up vehicle throughout. We will ride 1000 km over 14 days across Colombia to arrive in Cartegena on the Caribbean coast. The Andes, beautiful valleys, cities, towns, coffee plantations & of course the trip includes the worlds longest climb – Alto de Letres at 83 km long & 3700 m max height.
Accommodation will be a mixture of hotels & lodges in nine different locations. Two night stops in Medellin & Cartegena plus stay on longer / arrive to Bogota earlier if desired.
Bogotá is Colombia’s beating heart, an engaging and vibrant capital cradled by chilly Andean peaks and steeped in sophisticated urban cool. The city’s cultural epicenter is La Candelaria, the cobbled historic downtown to which most travelers gravitate. Here, a potpourri of carefully preserved colonial buildings is home to museums, restaurants, hotels and bars, peppered amid 300-year-old houses, churches and convents. Nearly all of Bogotá’s traditional attractions are here, radiating from Plaza de Bolívar, and gorgeous Cerro de Monserrate is just east.
Cartagena de Indias is the undisputed queen of the Caribbean coast, a historic city of superbly preserved beauty lying within an impressive 13km of centuries-old colonial stone walls. Cartagena’s Old Town is a Unesco World Heritage Site – a maze of cobbled alleys, balconies covered in bougainvillea, and massive churches that cast their shadows across leafy plazas.
Bernal, Quintana, Gaviria, Chaves, Uran & Henao – not sure we will be riding with them but this is their home, the country has an amazing cycling history & Colombia loves cycling & its incredibly successful cyclists.
