Top 5 Reasons for Mountain Biking Colombia
5. When it’s winter at home, it’s perfect weather in Colombia.
You can always find perfect weather in Colombia. It may be rainy season in one part of the country, but there will be perfect conditions somewhere due to the amazing and varied ecosystems in the country.
4. Some of the best cyclists in the world to test your skills against.
Colombia has some of the world’s top cyclists. Come test your metal against them. I’m willing to wager that the guy in the photo below can beat you both up and down any trail here. You can bring whatever bike you like.
3. Elemento Outdoor
My friends at Elemento in Taganga will show you some of the best trails in Colombia’s Sierra Nevada. You can ride with some great guys, through some fantastic terrain; much of which they built themselves.
2. Ride brand new trails
The Darkside trail high above Santa Marta is a singletrack trail through three distinct ecosystems. Try finding that at home! On top of this, the government is open to trail building and is supportive of bringing mountain bikers to Colombia as part of tourism. This means there will continually be great new trails to challenge yourself on.
1. It’s Awesome Here!
Let’s face it, Colombia’s awesome. You want to be here. Even better, you want to be here with your bike. Come and see for yourself. If mountain biking isn’t your thing, then bring your road bike. You’ll find the most challenging hills you’ve ever seen. Guaranteed. Plus, off the bike, you’ll find some of the world’s friendliest people, best coffee, and freshest fruits. Don’t wait.
