Welcome to Cyclists’ Paradise
Colombia is a cycling paradise and is considered one of the most interesting travel destinations in Latin America. This combination makes the country one of the most beautiful and exciting destinations for cycling holidays. Because of the geographic proximity to the equator, the temperature is stable throughout the year. The temperature changes primarily with altitude. While there is a tropical climate at altitudes below 1,000 meters above sea level, it is pleasantly warm in and around Medellín. We ride short/short at over 2,000 meters above sea level with wonderful temperatures, 365 days a year! It’s a dream!
Due to this unique climatic conditions we can offer you our Colombia cycling training camp in Medellín all year round, so you are completely free in your holiday planning!
Cycling Training Camps Tailor-Made For You
The routes of our cycling training camps are adapted to the level of performance of the participants. Would you like to train specifically, push your limits in altitude training or are you looking for a challenge? Or would you just like to have a great cycling holiday, spend a fantastic time on a bike and get to know a beautiful and exciting country? Regardless of your motive, you are definitely going to love our training camps!
The 12 day road cycling training camp includes 8 guided tours and 11 nights accommodation. The itinerary for the first week is the same as for the 8-day cycling camp. For the second rest day, on Saturday, a trip to Guatapé is planned. This picturesque village is an 1 1/2 hours drive away from our hotel, in a beautiful landscape, and invites you to go for a walk. Just outside the village, like a giant menhir, lies the “Piedra del Peñol” or “El Peñol”, a monolith almost 200 meters high, which can be climbed by stairs with more than 700 steps. From up there we have a fantastic view of the whole area. The participation in the trip to Guatapé is of course voluntary. If you want, you can also stay at the hotel and relax or do something on your own. That’s completely up to you.
Our weekly program is flexible and rides vary from week to week. For the route planning of the second week of the 12 day Colombia cycling training camp we take into account the tours of the first week, so that no guest will ride twice the same route. The tours described below are only an example. For the actual tour planning we take into account your performance level and training goals, so that fun and training success are guaranteed.
As base for all our road cycling training camps serves our luxury partner hotel in the Oriente of Medellín. It offers first class accomodation, great food and a wide range of services, so that your cycling holidays with us will be a fantastic experience on and off the saddle.
Since the routes and tours of our training camps can be adapted, they are also a great choice for cycling clubs and groups.
I thought it’s a dream and I woke up in cycling heaven! But it was true! Colombia is a cyclist’s dream, from the people that absolutely love cycling, the lush green terrain with challenging climbs and Martin’s top-notch travel organization, I couldn’t have asked for more during my trip to Colombia. This isn’t your cookie-cutter trip, Martin and his team really listen to your needs and pay detailed attention to everything you need. Truly a worry-free trip, with nothing but good memories and great fitness.
