Ride through cycling’s most inspiring destination
Join us to explore Colombia’s great mountains, as we ride from Bogota to Cali, becoming deeply immersed in the unmistakable coffee and cycling culture along the way. We’ll stay in authentic fincas, ride with locals, and quickly realise why Colombia produces some of the best climbers in the professional peloton. The unimaginably long Alto de Letras provides the trip’s biggest challenge - over 80km and 3,000m of uninterrupted climbing. An extraordinary experience for every cyclist’s bucket list.
