    Ruta Chingaza Time Trial: After scouting the full route and finding the best loop possible, I went back to ride it as a time trial all in one go.I began in the National Park in Bogota at 1am to make it through Chingaza National Park the following day. Julian, Nick and two other locals rode me out of town. We had a magical moment when the moon rose over the Paramos.I finished my self-supported 262 km ride in 39 hours, a huge challenge. FKT stands for Fastest Known Time, the record on a time trial attempt like this.Find the official route guide on BIKEPACKING.com: bikepacking.com/routes/ruta-chingazaAlso, note that this route is currently closed due to Covid-19 restrictions, particularly the segment through Chingaza National Park, which is closed to cycling at this moment. The park anticipates being able to begin facilitating cycling experiences (including bikepacking) by sometime in 2021. Check the route guide at bikepacking.com for updates.

    Hi Lael! I have been reading about your adventure and I started checking out part of the trail today (from la Calera to Sopo). Tomorrow will check the piece from parque nacional to Verjon and to La Calera. Hopefully next weekend I will check sesquile to san juanito and san juanito back to Bogotá. 39 hours is very demanding, sincerly impressing.
    ¡Wish me luck!
