We will be waiting for you at Matecaño Internacional Airport serving the city of Pereira. We will drive you to one of the most strategic and beatiful places to ride bikes and drink colombian coffee.

Day
Today we face our first day in the Colombian countryside. We will try to get your body used to riding at altitude and check that we are comfortable on the bike. We will ride on roads with almost no traffic and will cross some iconic coffee towns. The biggest challenge of the day will be a 12 km climb that will lead us to a Christ statue bigger than the one in Rio de Janeiro. Before heading up, Jill will give you the first of many tips and drills to come to improve your climbing and riding skills. After this we will head to our private poolhouse where we can rest in the afternoon.

Day
Let's enjoy the "easiest" bike day of the trip to get prepared for the long day that we will have tomorrow where we will change locations and move to another place of the coffee lands. Today we will do the lowest elevation gain and ride alongside one of the largest rivers of Colombia. This way we will have more time and those who want to can do a 2 hour tour where they learn about the coffee growing process in Colombia. At night our chef will host an Italian meal in order to get our bodies ready for the long day ahead of us tomorrow.
