Magical realism is a term that describes the combination of reality with fantastic fiction. It was developed in Latin-American literature, in the pen of writers such as Gabriel García Márquez. Since then, it has been said that Colombia is the land of magical realism, because it has a great variety of landscapes and people that take your mind to extraordinary places.
Biela Tour is your company for riding your bike in the land of magical realism. With us, you can meet new places, ride with great people, and understand what cycling means for Colombia. It was born when two cyclist friends realized that Colombia is the perfect cycling spot. After previously organizing some outstanding cycling trips, we decided that it had to go one-step further, and Biela Tour emerged. We plan cycling trips in which you just have to worry for pedaling and relishing, and we take care of the rest. You’ll enjoy great locations, people, food, transportation, and mechanical support to make your dreamed trip come to reality.
