Hi guys. I'll be arriving in Cartagena on May 14th with some riding and camping gear and no contacts. I have spent a lot of time riding in North and Central America, and this is kind of like my " Part 3" conclusion to ride from Alaska to TDF. My plan is to find a cheap place to stay until I can sort out buying a small bike and head south. I don't have a time limit, but it would be nice to get some wheels as soon as possible. I would be looking to keep the purchase at around the $1500 range which I am not sure is realistic, but I have some wiggle room, and also a dual-sport for trade in the US which is also a possibility. I am basically just trying to hear your collected wisdom on Colombia, i.e. what I should see, what I HAVE to see, roads to ride, etc. I want to spend 3 weeks to a month in Colombia, maybe studying Spanish in Medellin. My Spanish is pretty good, actually. I'll head south through Ecuador and Peru where I'll stop for a bit in Cuzco to take care of some business and then probably head south to TDF from there. So yeah, any advice, wisdom, tidbits, money saving tips, etc. would be appreciated. And if any of you are down there I would love to meet up along the way. Thanks!
