Chasing Glaciers while cheered by Volcanic Tufosi

Bike paths are always a pleasure to find. This was on the way from Zipaquira to Cajica. These girls set a blistering pace.

 Empanada Truck House!


I descended for hours from the Cordillera Oriental back down to cross the Rio de Magdalena again. That is the Cordillera Central waiting for me up ahead. Where I would have a fantastic 2 day climb to reach 13,866 ft. (by my GPS)

Roadside bath? Don't mind if I do.

If I had fenders I would want a similar ornament. Go without the rod brakes though.

The plaza in Murillo. Los Nevados peaking up in the back ground. A first glimps of snow in Colombia.

Camping by the ol´glacier velodrome.

I lump sleeping outdoors into 3 categories (1)Campspots (2)Crashspots and (3)Stashspots. We'll talk more of this later but this spot definitely falls into Category 1

off the back of the Glacier peloton.

The thin air and sunshine was also making me giddy. I almost started chewing on the other side of this little guys neck.


I can think of worse places to ride a bicycle.

Unfortunately a large majority of Parque Nacional Natural los Nevados was closed due to volcanic activity. Though I highly enjoyed what I could see.

Lurking in the brush and eating. Typical

  3. Anna, My pictures and photographic eye compare nothing to yours. I met and spent the afternoon with Jullian in Murillo (He speaks highly of you). It was a nice surprize to find I was on your route once again, though going the other way.
