One thing we absolutely love at FulGaz is a first-time contributor, what we love even more is when they are the first contributor from their country or region!

This week, Oscar Ospina shares with us their native homeland of Colombia in a nice tidy set.

Get ready to join Oscar on two rides from around the nation’s sprawling, high-altitude capital of Bogotá.

Green hills, moody clouds and bustling mountain roads will keep you tapping away.

Monserrate to Guadalupe Sanctuary

At 2,670 metres above sea level, Bogotá is one of the highest cities in South America, and is the birth place of Egan Bernal, winner of the 2019 Tour de France.

On the road that connects Bogotá with the municipality of Choachí is this climb that is part of the “Alto del Verjón”. It is a traditional ascent for cyclists from Bogotá that ends at one of the two high-rise sanctuaries of the capital, Monserrate and Guadalupe.
