17.5.21. Well I arrive here and Manuel shows me around the fantastic place. Again, it’s a place I love, this area is so great. Lots of fantastic routes with amazing views. I can’t explain how good the routes and beautifull views are in this area. Manuel and Marta have a bike shop in Prado with lots of spares and excellent mechanics. There’s a workshop at casa de ciclista with all the tools you need. I serviced my hub bearings with help from Manuel and he showed me how to remove my front chainrings and check the bottom bracket. The accommodation is great and a fully functional kitchen with everything you need. WiFi on site and a shop next door with everything you need. I could live here and end up staying 6 weeks due to the land borders still being closed with covid 19. Manuel is a great character and very funny, and Marta just goes out of her way to help you with anything you need. Next door lives Marcel and Diana and every Friday night he makes delicious pizzas in the outside oven at casa de ciclista. I could go on for ages but I’ll let the photos talk.
Great meal before leaving, Manuel and Marta on the left and Norberto the mechanic from Argentina and Brad who’s cycling around Colombia.
