Colombia ..... don't tell anyone, but the place is awful with beautiful woman, nice food, great people and epic riding etc so not of much interest at all

We are now in Ecuador (RRs a week behind) and miss Colombia big time so yes
el peligro es quedarse! .... muchas

Heya Court

Yeah Dan and Sara have told us all the nasty things about you guys so we will definately be there , in San Lorenzo today and heading coastal next day or so, will be in Quito after that, looking forward to meeting you.

We typically love riding the back yard of the countries so if you have some suggestions on the locale would be sweet, look forward to catching up.

Beautiful women in SA

I've not been to Columbia but the most beautiful women in
Argentina and Chile are in Mendoza, AR. I would sit on the
corner at the cafe and was awed by women. The women
love to be women and dress for it.
Don't miss Mendoza. The ride over the Andes to Los Andes
and particularly down into Chile..spectacular. You can
actually see Aconcaqua, the tallest mountain in the western
hemisphere. Spectacular....but go for the women.
Fair winds and the right spare parts.

Caliantics Round 3

So taking in cali locale was taking on a new meaning, Jorge said we needed to see the view from the top so we headed off up the black top to meet up with Raul and his chickie.

Goats, yeah hairy friendly goats to pat where we stopped one particular kid had springs in his legs which was rather amusing, turns out Raul was on Colombian time so caught us up after





Turning off onto shingle which got worse and worse (note better and better)the road turned to track and lumpy, into the fog line so wet so well



Reaching the summit it was .....well....white from fog so no epic view of Cali from Gods front lawn, never mind cant win em all.



On our decent the slippery clay and rocks proved too much for Megan (Jorges 200 Pulsar) and she had a quick nap, both rider and passenger were ok other than sporting some mud on clothes, shortly after Rual appeared, by this time it is pitch black......again, see a pattern forming?

The darkness stealing the light, 2 x LEDs and the stock headlight going!!



After regrouping it was destination monster Jesus (Christer Rey) who looks over Cali, awesome view .... with no fog





Some works by artist making clay works on an embankment



Pizza, just down the hill for tea, beautiful, next stop San Antonio lookout then home in prep for an early start for a ride to Rio Claro

Caliantics Round 4 - Rio Claro

Rio Claro was delayed slightly by rain but nonetheless we headed out after gearing up and the further we got in elevation and into the park the better it got.

The road however being the biggest challenge yet for the two smaller bikes on road rubber, even Maya was wriggling around a bit as it was hard clay with a wet top



A couple of creek crossings proving to be fun for all and we made it all but to the end when one creek crossing was a little higher, being on Maya there was an unspoken request that we go first which was fair and they could gauge the depth





It turned out to be only 300 - 400 deep but flowing fast enough to make it interesting for the lite bikes







Finally reachng Rio Claro it was like having a small side trip to Africa, now bein blanco (white) I love dark .... suddenly I was surrounded with girlfriends much to Ellens amusement

My fav



Six pack boys, beautiful girls .....out here in the middle of nowhere WTF, Jorge and Raul watching on in amusement too.

This time Maya not the subject of discussion but the whiteyfoo and the yella terra, they all wanted their photos with us and we with them .....totally awesome fun



Leaving Africa and heading back into Colombia the road progressively got easier then back to the main drag to Rauls grandmothers place for lunch....more yummy fud



Back to home base, a quick wonderwoman clothing change and off to the salsa festival in town, gezz talk about busy, on conclusion of that we had a quick interview with the TV asking what we thought of Cali and Colombia so that was cool ( so I thanked my supporters and asked for world peace and fud for all the children in Africa).





The TV lady



Una Chimba



Raul on the left and Jorge o the right ... being so immature



An evening stroll with a guided tour on the way home finished the day

Vid of the day

Una chimba? There's no going back for you Andy. You drank the water and got contaminated. So much for the Colombian treatment.
