Amazing route from the historic center of Bogotá, passing through the main avenue (Carrera 7), the "Alto de Patios" and ending in an excellent climb to the "La Cima" golf club.
It is a recommended route to do with friends, it is a bit longer and more if you add the return time. It is recommended to do an early Saturday or Sunday to avoid traffic (from vehicles and other cyclists)
Always stay close to your group, with good reflectors, at a safe distance from the cars, and the road is shared with the vehicles in most of the sections.
Tips, hints and links
On Sundays, you have the advantage of the cyclovia (although there are more people)
