    Just throwing this out there.
    My friend and I are currently in Cartegena, heading South in a few days.
    We're looking for ideas on the first day's stop, looking at no more than a five hour day.
    Based on maps and research, the possibilities are nearly endless, so I figured why not throw it out here?
    We'll be sharing rooms, both are fine with Hostals as well as camping.
    We both are more concerned about secure bike parking.
    And, obviously, are open for suggestions, hence my post here.
    He's not an ADV member. He's a Brit that I met on the Stahlratte.
    Thanks in advance!

    Hi Ohio, are you wanting to ride along the coast or ride inland?

    Hi guys, we’re crossing into Colombia in early August after two months in Peru and one in Ecuador. We appreciated the list of roads mentioned earlier in the thread, thank you!!

    The reason I’m posting is I need to find a good wheel builder in Bogata. We just need to swap the steel rims on my girlfriend’s bike for some tougher alloy rims. Thanks in advance for forwarding the contact info if you know of one.

    Also a list of hot springs in Colombia would be much appreciated!! Keep your eyes out for us we’re on two blue Yamaha Tenere 250s with Peru plates that usually look like garage sales on wheels

    I've mostly lurked on ADVrider for a few years, but saw this thread and had a question....

    My family is heading to Cartagena for my daughter's wedding (she's marrying a great Colombian guy), and we will be travelling to Barranquilla about 2 hours away to visit his family for a few days.

    My question is..... is there any such thing as a one way rental from Cartagena to Barranquilla? Me and my youngest daughter want to 2up it to Barranquilla.

    This will be our second trip to Colombia, and we love it. Thanks in advance!

    It's really not that far of a ride, you could ride and do a loop easy in half a day.

    Yes it’s pretty short, I’m trying to work it into a family schedule though. That’s why I thought maybe just use the travel day to take a couple of hours for a bike ride.
