I directly start with a steep and long climb up to almost 3.000 meters. This is a main climb for the cyclist from Medellin and there are plenty of riders I can overtake. From the peak I descent 2.400 meters in a winding road with spectacular views into the valley. In the afternoon the road starts climbing again but this time on gravel for almost 100 km. It’s all road works and constant stop and go on a dusty road. In the evening I descent again into the Cauca valley and already in the dark find a dirty hotel for 5 Euros. There is music and party on the streets and I barely sleep the night.
