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.
Hannah MacDonald, Liverpool, England, UK
A fantastic trip with a great group of people and a redspokes crew who really were outstanding. Once again I feel humbled by the hospitality that we received. A beautiful country rich in so many ways, redspokes offering a true insight.
Steve Schleppe, Surrey B.C. Canada
I really enjoyed my redspokes trip to Colombia. This ride took us into Central Colombia where we were given an honest look at the rural Colombian way of life. This ride is in no way sugar coated with extras, the food was plentiful but repetitive, the riding was challenging but rewarding, the Colombians were friendly and giving, the support staff were wonderful and the scenery was worth every drop of sweat it took to climb to the top of the mountains.
Dominique Bongaerts, TN Leiden, The Netherlands
Again a fantastic cycling trip with overwhelming hospitality of the local people. It was great to be accompanied by local cyclistas while going up hill and I still wonder whether the Movie star guy waving at us was Quintana.
Mark and Julia Swindall, West Sussex, England
A great opportunity to experience the beauty of rural Columbia and encounter the refreshing unrestrained hospitality and warmth of the local people. Outstanding support from Geovanny as generous hearted guide, Alex as indefatigable cycle leader and Eduardo as irrepressible driver.
Tony Hocking, Melbourne, Australia
The trip was well organized from start to finish, excellent tour guides - personable and informed and did everything possible to make the tour enjoyable and the cyclists tour group got on well together. All the tour guides were interested and pleased to be on the tour.
Paul Brown, Cumbernauld, Scotland
I have not travelled extensively and so was unsure what to expect from the group and the country itself. The group was a mixed bag of individuals who maintained the delicate balance of making sure no-one was left isolated while respecting everybody's personal space. Time spent alone was not seen as disrespecting the group ethos. Colombia was different from any other country I have visited. The big cities were very westernised, which disappointed me. The attraction of Colombia is in the countryside where almost all of the trip took place. The perennial hills were full of life. A combination of man made coffee and sugar plantations and jungle. Cycling over high passes surrounded by these rolling hills with higher mountains lurking in the background while fast flowing rivers cut through the valley below gave a unique sense of perspective.
Even the spectacular Colombian countryside took second place to the most enjoyable part of the tour, namely the people of Colombia. In every small town we passed through with it's replica square and church people gathered round us eager to welcome us and engage with us. Local media wanted to interview us, local people wanted pictures taken with us and local cyclists wanted ride part of the way with us. In some of the small towns people were not as forthcoming until we initiated some sort of dialogue and then they opened up. These were vibrant places where almost everybody was out on the streets. The few who stayed inside left their doors opened so as not to shut themselves off from the gathering. The communities seemed more integrated with young and old mingling with the general population and a benign harmony permeating the atmosphere. redspokes allowed us to glimpse the real Colombia far removed from the perception we receive in Britain and the West and for that I am very grateful. Thank you Dermot.
