- Day 7: La Pintada – Medellin

A new day, a new challenge. Alto de Minas is a 40 kilometres climb and it was in these hills that gave rise to the Colombian cyclists who were coined “Los Escarabajos” (beetles) due to their incredible climbing abilities while riding the pro cycling circuit in 1980s. At the crest of this climb, you will see Medellin, our resting spot at the end of this riding day. Distance: 80 kilometres Altitude gain: 2000 metres.
