Colombia. Thrust into the spotlight by shows like Netflix’s “Narcos”, it’s easy to conjure up images of druglords and ganglands when you think of Colombia. But with its darkest days long behind them, Colombia has opened up to be a haven for the intrepid traveller. Boasting incredible cycling roads and ‘off the beaten tracks’ for adventure lovers, unforgettable rhythms and beats for music aficionados and insight into coffee from the bean to the cup, Colombia is emerging as the next biggest tourist destination on the planet.

Our journey goes far beyond Colombia’s coffee regions, live music scene and majestic mountain scenery as we’ll connect with former gang members now working towards peace and urban renewal via local organizations. Get first-hand insight into the problems of yesterday, the challenges that still stand and what the solutions for tomorrow look like.

Social Cycles will take you on a journey to interact and connect with local grassroots non-government organisations (NGOs) and the beneficiaries of a funded project of your choosing. Research what really happens on the ground and out in the villages with Social Cycles in a holiday that carefully balances ethical research and local impact with cycling and site seeing.

Payment

A deposit of 10% is required when booking this tour. The remaining balance will be charged 45 days prior departure. For any bookings within 45 days of departure, the full tour amount will be charged upon booking.

Travel Insurance

We advise to take out Travel Insurance to cover for any unforeseen circumstances. Bookmundi recommends World Nomads' travel insurance.

The distances between one hotel to the next can be extensive, so we have cherry-picked the best part to cycle in between, but it may only be 40 to 60km of the route. Each Social Cycles tour is fully supported so there is an opportunity for riders to take a rest in the van. Our goal is to exhibit the beauty of travelling Colombia by bicycle. It is not to rack up thousands of kilometres. Therefore, our style is recreational and casual. We aim to cater for beginner to intermediate recreational cyclists, not professionals or Strava enthusiasts.
CANCELLATION 10% Deposit payable upfront. Remaining balance payable 45 days prior to trip departure. Free cancellation up to 45 days prior departure. No refund applicable within 45 days of departure.
