Colombia - Medellin to Bogota
Here are what some of our customers have had to say about our Colombia - Medellin to Bogota cycling holidays...
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.

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!
Ingrid Perols, Napier, New Zealand
What an amazingly fantastic trip I had. The cycling was great, Colombia one of the most scenic countries you could imagine, the people soooo friendly and the guides absolutely brilliant.
Richard Edwards, Edinburgh, Scotland
redspokes gives you an unparalleled opportunity to explore what a country's really like. In our trip to Colombia, we experienced amazing hospitality and warmth from the local people, great weather, aguardiente and dancing, and of course... as many hills as we could handle! redspokes take care of all the logistics and provide great support, leaving you free to relax, cycle and soak it all up! Highly recommended and would book again.
Karen / Geoff, London, England, UK
Another great trip with redspokes, lots of interaction with the local people whilst cycling through some stunning Colombian Highland scenery. We feel that we saw the "real Colombia", the side that most tourists don't see, we would do it all over again! A big thanks to our fellow travellers, what a great bunch of people to travel with!
Cindy Richards, Surrey, British Columbia Canada
This was my first cycling adventure and Dermot and the group helped me feel comfortable with cycling at my own pace. I could challenge myself without feeling I had to compete or keep up with others. I loved it; it was one of the most satisfying and gratifying vacations I have ever had.
John and Judy Roche Bedford, Leeds, England, UK
A fantastic and unforgettable cycling adventure. Experienced Colombian people as very hospitable and welcoming of us as cyclists exploring part of their country. Involving Melba and her family meant we had a very special experience of life in rural Columbia which we will always remember as a special time in our lives...Thank you Dermot and the team!
Catherine & Stuart Wyse, Vancouver, Canada
Another great trip with redspokes - the Colombian people could not have been more welcoming as we cycled through the region. The scenery was spectacular. Lots of challenging climbs but as the old adage goes "what goes up, must come down!" Highly recommend redspokes for those who really want to experience the country.
