This is one of the most popular rides from Bogota, great for acclimatization and to be part of the large community of bogotano bikers. Every morning from calle 82 a lot of people (it can go up to 5.000 people on Sundays) start their day with a 4 mile climb (6,7 km) with 1.400ft slope (420m).
You can choose to go further all the way to La Calera, a small town with a history of indigenous roots and mining, where you will delight yourself with Aguadepanela con arepa, a typical colombian hot drink made of cane sugar and what could be best described as thick corn tortillas. This will give you enough energy to climb back to Bogota.
