Road Cycling Holidays
Cycling Camp in the Colombian Andes
- Cycling camp in the training area of Rigoberto Urán & Co.
- Lengths and difficulties of the routes adapted to your performance level
- Fantastic climate all year round
- Beautifull landscapes and typical villages
- Medellín – one of the “coolest” cities in the world
The road cycling camps take place in the Oriente (East) of Medellín. Our hotel is situated at an altitude of more than 2,000 meters on a plateau surrounded by mountains. The Oriente (East) of Medellín is a true paradise for cyclists. Our rides during the cycling camp will take you through the beautiful landscape and the typical, colonial-style villages of Antioquia. Depending on the tour, temperature and vegetation changes as we climb up or descend the mountains, making cycling in this area a very special experience.
Medellín owes its reputation as the “City of Eternal Spring” to its unique climate. It is neither too cold nor too warm and there is hardly a day when the sun is not shining. Since the temperature remains constant throughout the year, you can wear short / short 365 days of the year!
We know the most beautiful routes and put together a varied program with tours for riders of all fitness levels. Depending on the fitness level of the participants, we ride between 65 and 180 km per day and climb between 800 and 3,700 m. When planning the weekly tour program, we take into account the performance level of each group, your personal training goals, as well as weather and road conditions. The tours described below are just an example and may change from week to week.
Due to the fantastic climate in Medellín and its surroundings we can offer our cycling camps all year round, so you are welcome to stay with us any time of the year!
The cycling camps start on Sundays, but there are no fixed arrival days. You can also join us during the week, so you have the greatest flexibility in your planning and can go for the best flight offers.
During your cycling camp with Elite Cycling Colombia, you will also get to know our host country off the common tourist tracks and get an insight into life in Colombia, which “normal” tourists don´t get. You will experience and discover a lot of exciting things and will fall in love with this great country.
If you want to ride on your own bike during the cycling camp, there is no problem. For a fee that may vary by airline and booking class, you can bring your bike as luggage on your flight to Colombia. Airport transfer to the hotel is on us and we are happy to help you with the assembly and disassembly of your bike. Of course, the necessary tools will also be provided by us. In case you prefer to avoid the risk of your bike getting damaged during transport, you can also rent one of our top-equipped rental bikes from STORCK, one of Germany’s leading brands for exclusive lightweight carbon frames and parts.
The cycling camp is suited for cyclists of almost all levels. No matter if you want to improve your overall fitness and travel the country, prepare yourself for the new season or a specific race, or just try out your personal limits. We take into account your performance level and training goals for tour planning and group formation, so that fun and training success are guaranteed. However, before coming here you should have some kilometers in your legs and also some experience riding in the mountains.
