South American Epic 1ste etappe

Samenvatting

Icon Undiscovered Country 2a

The Undiscovered Country Dit is het eerste deel van de South American Epic. Jarenlang werd het prachtige land Colombia vermeden door reizigers. Dit is gelukkig veranderd en wij zijn blij dat de South American Epic begint in dit fietsvriendelijk land. Bergen, jungles, watervallen, lekkere koffie, stranden en bloeiende steden zijn slechts enkele van de hoogtepunten van dit land.

Routebeschrijving

The Undiscovered Country
This 1,180 km cycling adventure begins in the stunning colonial jewel of Cartagena whose old town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. We bike down the coast, stopping for cervezas in Tolu's seaside bars. Turning inland, we'll then cross cattle pastures and rushing rivers before beginning to climb up into the stunning Sierra de San Lucas Mountains. Following little known backroads we emerge at 1500m above sea level in the city of Medellin, where the cyclists will enjoy a well-deserved rest day.
From Medellin, we spin east and spend a night at Guatape, next to a man-made reservoir, before speeding downhill and across the impressive Rio Magdalena, which drains about 1/4 of Colombia's area. Then it is a challenging climb up into the Cordillera Oriental, including one 2000m ascent over 50kms. Then the SA Epic riders will have the opportunity to join local Bogota cyclists as they enjoy their weekly Ciclovia, with many of the city's streets closed to motor traffic, a fitting end to this exciting and rewarding section.

Fiets

Bring your own bike. - For this section, we recommend a touring bike with 35-40c tires.

Make sure you bring a bicycle that is appropriate for your tour, and in excellent working order. If you intend to use your current bicycle, it needs to be fully tuned, cleaned and ready to go. Ideally, get your bike shop to do an overhaul of your entire bike three to four weeks before your departure. Have them inspect, and if necessary replace, the drive train, pedals and bottom bracket for wear.
