In addition, you may also check the cycling trips we organize in Europe for our South American clients via our main tour operator 'En bici por Francia'. Our guides speak fluent English, as well as most of our clients, so it would be easy for you to adapt to our groups and make friends (please see below, you will be redirected to our other website – descriptions available in Spanish only for the moment).

We had some strong riders and they were more than ready to go when the group wanted to hammer and could sense when and who needed to slow the pace and enjoy the scenery. Because we had 2-3 guides and 2 cars we were able to break up the group and manage different paces.
Yves managed a great trip. We stayed in 5-star hotels, eating there as well. This helped build camaraderie with our fellow riders, but we might have missed out on some of the local cuisine and ambiance.
I had been really interested in visiting Colombia and getting to ride in what I heard was a cycling mecca, It did not disappoint.
The country welcomes cyclists on the roads. It seems everybody rides and they have a real appreciation and more importantly respect for cyclists. The roads through the villages and into the mountains were epic. The small towns, with their ubiquitous but locally unique town squares, were always welcoming with coffee and pastry shops along with the requisite imposing church. The locals were fantastic and very friendly.

Most epic cycling trip of my life! We went on this trip in Feb right before the pandemic hit and it also coincided with the Tour de Colombia. We rode through beautiful countrysides, up mountains, down epic descents, through quaint towns and drank it all in on our bikes – around
500 miles over 8 days. Besides the incredible riding, it was a real treat to stay at the same hotel as the pros that were racing in the Tour de Colombia. We saw countless pros riders and even got to snap a few pictures with Julien Alaphilippe and TdF winner, Egan Bernal. It was truly a pro experience, definitely would recommend the trip and I hope to come back to Colombia again with Colombia Bike Tours – perhaps on gravel bikes this time!

I had the pleasure of riding with Yves and Jose for 5 days in January of 2021. From the first email exchange planning my prospective trip to our goodbye at the airport in Bogota, I could not have asked for a better experience. The logistics and planning were perfect.
My only job was to ride and enjoy myself. My guides were endlessly accommodating and flexible. We constantly adjusted the day to match my fitness and energy levels.
The riding and scenery were invigorating. I was impressed with the route selection and natural beauty of Colombia. Alto de Letras is a must do for any cyclist. I will never forget my panela fueled adventure of the “longest climb in the world”! Jose guided me with great encouragement to a challenging and rewarding victory.
Further trip highlights included seeing Egan Bernal zip by at light speed on a ride outside of Subachoque, climbing an 18 percent grade, and taking a coffee at the top of Patios, the “local hill” exiting Bogota.
If you are a looking for a tailored experience that will broaden your bicycling horizons, Colombia Bike Tours did a wonderful job and I recommend them whole heartedly.
