Wat je gaat doen

Bogotá's Eastern Hills - part of the Andes mountain range - offer a great opportunity for cyclists looking to challenge themselves. If you love to ride, let's start out early one morning from the La Candelaria neighborhood and escape from the city into the nearby forest, fill our lungs with fresh air and pump our legs. Riding high-end mountain bikes, we'll first pedal through a few blocks of city traffic and pollution before climbing into the forested hills, where we'll discover greenery and fresh air which will make us feel we're a million miles from the big city. After a few kilometers and and several hundred meters of elevation gain, we'll pause for a drink and to take in spectacular vistas of Colombia's sprawling capital city. Rested and refreshed, we'll tackle the steep climb to the towering Virgin of Guadalupe statue, which stands at 2,265 meters above sea level and 600 meters above Bogota. There, we'll take in the spectacular 360 degree view of the forested mountains to our east and the city to our west. We'll also enjoy a snack and an agua panela, a traditional warm drink made from sugar cane juice. From there, we'll take an exhilarating ride back down through the forest to the city. On the way home, we'll stop for a beer and a game of tejo, Colombia's national sport.

Mike

I grew up on a bicycle in California, where it was my transport and friends and I loved to challenge ourselves with long bike tours along the coast and in the mountains, in California as well as other western states. About 20 years ago, I moved to South America, where I taught English and worked as a freelance journalist. The bicycle continued being my transport, and I also continued doing long bike tours, in Chile, Bolivia, Venezuela, as well as here in Colombia. Here in Bogotá I lead bike tours, and some mornings ride up into the Andes mountains which form a dramatic background to the city. I find it a great way to start the day and to escape from the city, if only for a few hours, to rejuvenate oneself in nature. I'd love to share the experience with you!

Wat er is inbegrepen

Eten
An agua panela, fruit snack and traditional sweet treat at end of the climb.

Waar je naartoe gaat

Bogotá's Eastern Hills form a spectacular backdrop to the city - and an escape hatch for those of us stressed by city life. The gigantic Virgin de Guadalupe monument stands like a sentinel high above Bogotá, like the city's guardian angel. The pine and eucalyptus forests covering the hills above Bogotá aren't native, but are nevertheless beautiful and relaxing.
