DAYS 1:Bogota-Honda

Begin your cycling adventure in Bogota, a bustling city of 9 million. Navigate the morning traffic as we transition by vehicle to our starting point. Descend from the heights of the Eastern Andes to the Magdalena River Valley, starting at 2600 meters and ending at 200 meters. Witness a dramatic change in temperature, colors, and nature. The real challenge lies not in the climbing meters but in adapting to the heat during the second half as we pedal through the Colombian "Tierra Caliente."

DAY 2:Honda-Letras

Prepare for the queen stage—an epic journey. Starting early from Mariquita, we face the relentless climb of El Alto de Letras, one of the world's longest mountain passes. Despite a modest 3.9% incline, the length and changing altitudes, from 480 to 3650 meters above sea level, make it a strategic challenge. Navigate through varying thermal zones, and the final kilometers, coupled with altitude and accumulated fatigue, demand a strategic approach.

DAY 5:La Pintada-Jerico
