We initiated our scout in Villa de Leyva to attempt to make a connection between Bogota and the Oh Boyaca! bikepacking route (bikepacking.com/routes/oh-boyaca-colombia/).Boyaca, Colombia is the birthplace of Nairo Quintana, the most celebrated pro cyclist in Colombia. Villa de Leyva was a very lovely village to begin our trip. Climbing in Colombia is no joke — the climbs are short and punchy and incredibly steep.
