Què farem?

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.

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!

On aniràs?

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.

I was looking for a demanding sports activity... I got it, we ended up in a far longer version of the tour. But don’t worry, they will spontaneously adapt to your needs, and pace. Fantastic experience. It is allways more rewarding to « merit » the view. I warmly recommend this wonderful experience (by the way, I’m already planning my next tour)

A great tour of the city. The climb to the top of Guadeloupe Hill to see the statue overlooking Bogota was tiring but Mike moved at my pace. Glad I stuck with it to the top. Mike also took me on a tour of the city after we came back to the city. It was a great exposure to various districts and some great snacks at the market. A perfect way to get to know Bogota and a simply fantastic view at the top of Guadeloupe Hill. Even higher than Monserrrat!

It was so good to escape the city and go biking in the mountains! The landscape on the other side is just idyllic, and I wouldn't have been able to go there any other way. Also, Mike helped me get back to town in time for an important meeting of mine and even dropped me off at a different location, taking my extra bike back with him the rest of the way. This was the best way to go biking during my visit, and Mike really helped me out. He really went out of his way for my sake, and I'm really grateful.

Biking in the Andes was a blast. Coming from road cycling, the bike up is difficult with the mountain bikes. But doing the rough trails at the top was exhilarating. Our guide, Luis Carlos, was excellent and provided us a couple of different options due to our time constraints. Thanks!
