Our history

In 2010, in a car, with the disassembled bike in the trunk (trying not to let the clients notice it too much) and their bicycles on a simple rack attached to the car, we did our first tour. We were the first company and to this day the leader in Cycling Tours in Colombia.

However, the story begins between 2000 and 2003, with more than 6,000 kilometers traveled by bike in Europe while Tomás was doing his master’s degree in economics in France. Europe is incredible, but Colombia has the perfect climate all year round. We have the Andes mountain ranges, impressive landscapes, colonial towns, very friendly people, authentic food and easily the oldest cycling culture on the continent. Why not cycle tourism in Colombia?

Between 2004 and 2011 upon his return from Europe, Tomás began to compete and train with Santiago Botero (2002 UCI ITT world champion), his mentor who guides him in the needs of a cyclist, operation of the logistics of a high-end team level, skills when riding in the peloton and a lot of technique on the bike, especially on the descent. Today the “capito” is one of the great inspirations of Colombia Cycling and a great friend.

Between 2013 and 2014 we explored many business models, business trips, consultancies, urban mobility, we attended Gran Fondos in the United States, cycling parades, we spoke with similar companies around the world, we created and organized the first urban transport bike fair in Medellín, we did the Gran Fondo Hincapie Colombia and we participated in our first round of business with Procolombia.

In 2015 we carried out the first Procolombia FAM (Familiarization Trip) related to cycling and we were able to bring 6 international agencies to get to know us. BOOM !! The perfect design was born, bike + Experience, it is not just coming to ride, ending up dead after each ride, it is discovering Colombia, its gastronomy, its people and our cultural wealth.

In 2017 !! What a good memory !! We began reaping what we had sown and had the first two agencies with groups of cyclists, then many more arrived, which come back every year to Colombia as one of their main destinations.

2019 had a magnificent closing with the Prize awarded by Procolombia (National Tourism Promoter entity) and the National Government as the Best Tourism Experience in Colombia. (Attached photo)

Now we are Marce and Tomas and a network of allies, guides, mechanics, masseurs, and friends who have seen us grow. We no longer disassemble bikes to put them in the trunk, there is space and racks for bikes. We continue pedaling and discovering new and better experiences because our passions are riding bikes and sharing with the world the magic that our country has to offer.

“We assure you the best cycling experience and the best memory of an unforgettable vacation.”

The founders


I never thought that 6,000 km by bike around Europe, working as Secretary of Economic Development for the Government and being a good cyclist with several races won, would be the perfect mix to create a company. Colombia Cycling allows us to show the world that the best place to ride a bike, it’s Colombia. Not only because of the great challenges that our mountains impose and that have made our “Escarabajos” famous, but also because of the cultural variety, historical knowledge and economy that I enjoy sharing in the rides.


After spending years supporting and advising entrepreneurs and companies, Colombia Cycling allowed me to combine my passion for travel and creating experiences. My energy, hospitality, ability to connect with people and my dedication to taking care of the smallest details, making our tours the best memory of your life. I have curated the best accommodation, restaurants and attractions to ensure that you not only have a wonderful adventure on your bike, but also off it.

Colombia Cycling pet

TRÉBOL, (CLOVER) A black cat with yellow eyes is the Colombia Cycling Pet

On an exploration trip through the coffee zone, while Tomás was riding his bike and Marce was in the car and the sun was setting, we saw a pair of eyes and stopped. We were in the middle of nowhere and suddenly a kitten was walking toward us. He seemed hungry and all we had to give him were granola bars. It is rare for a cat to come close to people, yet it surrounded us with its tail and continued to eat cookies. What to do? And if we adopt it? Well, if the cat gets in the car, he will have chosen us. The kitten jumped on Marce’s legs and was accompanying us for more than 3 days, sleeping outside the hotels, free, and the next day ready to continue our journey together. Despite bringing home a fungal infection, his sparse tail looking like an arrow and his gremlin-like ears being hairless, today after many years he is our companion, friendly with all the cyclists who visit us, and our official mascot. If you want to have a TREBOL with you, climb Letras! Just as the prize of the Tour de France is a Lion, if you finish El Alto de Letras with Colombia Cycling you will receive a Trebol, your lucky cat.


All these recognitions would not have been possible without a network of allies, friends and collaborators who also put passion into it.

Textile industry

Colombia has one of the oldest textile industries on the continent. The story began in small workshops and shops in 1870, today there are half a thousand companies dedicated to the textile sector and there are about 10,000 formal manufacturing production plants operating. Medellín is one of the main cycling clothing hubs in the world, if you are a lover of this sector, ask us to schedule a visit to see the production plant.

Sports nutrition and cycling accesories

We take care of every detail, that is why we cover all the phases in this sport: rest, the active phase and the recovery phase. Our local partners produce the best range of sports nutrition. Mechanics and maintenance of our bikes. Accessories and spare parts in case you need something during your trip. Our allies will be there even if you want to take something of the local flavor or that you cannot find in your country.

Hotels "Mi casa es tu casa"

Can we stay one more day in this hotel? A phrase that we hear very frequently from our clients, but as soon as we arrive at the next destination they say the same thing. Authentic, world-class accommodation in the best location for riding. From the quality of the pillows to the tranquility of the rooms, we’ve given it our approval and we are in constant communication with the owners to offer an unbeatable experience according to the needs of cyclists. “Con mucho gusto!”
