- Day 5: Pereira – Filandia

The day will start by riding through undulating hills. After each small descent we will encounter a small river and a bamboo forest that create a green tunnel to ride through. After turning left and leaving Montenegro behind the gentle but constant 17 km climb will take us to Finlandia. This town lies just shy of 2000 metres in altitude and is one of the best preserved coffee hub towns. The heart of the activity is centred around a plaza where jeeps lumber in and out of the area weighted by coffee bags. Distance: 45km Altitude gain: 1300mts
