Robert Travers, Maryland, Baltimore, USA
I thought redspokes did a great job for its clients in the cycling adventure in Colombia. This is for the experienced cyclist as well as the intrepid traveler. I truly enjoyed seeing the beautiful countryside while riding my bike and the staff was wonderful
John Lingford, London, England, UK
An excellent way to see the Colombian countryside and small towns.
Allan Meek, Cardiff, Wales
The trip was magical and the Colombian people were so friendly and welcoming. The whole redspokes team were just brilliant and went above and beyond to make it such a happy experience. I'll definitely tour with redspokes again.
Ms Sharlene Rainford, Lewisham, NSW, Australia
Wonderful trip. Colombia is forever in my heart and the crew were just lovely. I never thought I'd enjoy cycling up mountains so much. Be warned, the cycling on some days isn't for the feint hearted. The 130km day is pretty tough especially in the heat. The 'monster mountain climb' however was fantastic and not as hard as it sounds. The views are spectacular and of course there's the downhill reward. Be prepared for fairly same-ish food most of the time but it won't matter because Colombia is a special place!
André BINON, Beloeil, Belgium
wonderful discovery of Columbia with an excellent team
Cornelia Demmel, Munich, Germany
This trip rates amongst the best ones I have done in my life - just everything worked out perfectly: a magnificent country with wonderful genuine people and picturesque countryside, an absolutely fabulous support team that looked after us well beyond the call of duty and a terrific group of fellow cyclists sharing the adventure on and off the bike. Thank you redspokes for having organized yet another great tour. I will be back again.
Keith & Pat Green, Dudley, England, UK
Keith & I really enjoyed the Colombian experience. The people there are really friendly. In fact, 4 of us were invited into someone's home for a baptism celebration! The scenery is really impressive. High green mountains with lots of coffee, banana and exotic fruit plantations. Most of the towns seem to be hanging onto the side of a mountain with practically vertical streets! Our guides Geovanny, Alex, Adrian and John were great and the group were really friendly and lots of fun and we will miss everyone.

To all adventurous bicyclist, redspokes is an incredible company that will take you into some of the best areas of the world to experience biking, culture and the people. I rate this trip and the company behind it 5 stars as everything came off perfectly. In addition the company and its trip leaders focused on safety and being the best, friendly, helpful and we all had a great time and fun. I highly recommend redspokes. In addition the bikes they provided were perfect and exceeded expectations and the trip leaders totally maintained them during the entire trip
Susan Lincoln, Idaho, USA
Colombia was a fantastic trip, cycling through beautiful terrain, friendly people and with a staff that made every effort to support us on our journey. Be prepared for lots of climbing, lots of swooping downhills, greens of all shades, views, rivers, non touristy towns, and a warm welcome from all that we met. There is so much here, and the seat of a bicycle (the rentals were excellent, well tuned and a good match for the varied terrain you will traverse) is the perfect vantage point to sample it. Geovanny, Alex, Adrian and John were a great team, so much fun both on the road and off.
Rory Morrison, London, England, UK
Thanks a lot redspokes and Colombia ground crew for an eye opening and relaxing break. From a cycling perspective the holiday builds up nicely over a few climbs towards a more challenging mountain pass at altitude in week two. The discovery of the holiday was the warm reception and seemingly inexhaustible hospitality we received from the Colombian people, especially those connected with the group (mis parceros), but also from those we met along the way. Special thanks to the Colombianas who patiently taught me how to muddle along with some of the latest rhythms. Coasting along mainly back roads we were reminded at every switchback of the grinding individual effort which goes into the raw material for each Starbucks or Costa skinny caramel machiato. In Colombia we had no such thing - just filtered coffee served immediately from an urn with optional warm milk - nice!
