No illicit substances ever to come out of Colombia then?
You’ll be pleased to know I wouldn’t want to visit.
As with anywhere I’m sure the majority of the population aren’t drug barons or fouling footballers - just a few
Any particular reason why you're being a dick?
pointing out a few facts Richard
The man from another team pushed a man from my team over and it looked hurties so now we're all crying aka Football thread is over there >>>
Because you are just not worth it..
Wow what a lovely thread. Thanks @almac68, I feel inspired. Any thoughts on my brain hatching a plan to take a bike out to Bogotá for a month?
Sounds like a great idea @freddo .. what was your thinking? Trips out touring across epic landscapes or discover the city?
Bogotá is on a high plateau around 2400m above sea level, then mountain passes +3500m perhaps start local with ciclovía traffic free sundays in the downtown area, find local cycle groups or escorted rides perhaps and brush up on your español it will take you further, hospitality wise. The Colombians appreciate the effort to speak their language.
Then check out this cathedral, built entirely from salt about 50km north of the capital. 200 metres underground
Wow, Nueva Villa de Aburrá in Medellín listed 3rd, now that’s cool
Bike shops that cater to fixie foos? I'm sending a bike before I fly out in April, fingers crossed, and won't be able to buy foot retention (straps preferably) until I get there.
*No bike for Colo, maybe purchase one there. We shall see.
Got a flat down las palmas after my 5th? attempt to reach the top. My limit is this one retorno. I do have a 44t I could use. We’ll see. I leave soon anyway. Good times. I love Medellin. Guatape roads are amazing. Caldas amazing. La Estrella amazing. Itagui amazing. Mango and Lulo Hit is addictive. Burger Chef is bomb.
