The Legend of El Dorado is a new marathon stage race set in Colombia. It offers passionate and adventurous mountain bikers the unprecedented opportunity to immerse themselves in the magical landscapes of Colombia in teams of two, and to ride their hearts out.
The 7 stage route pays homage to Colombia, with its astonishing and varied landscapes and rich cycling history, by traversing the country in a huge swathe from the tropical town of Villeta, north-west of Bogota, to the pristine colonial town of El Retiro, just south of Medellin, Colombia’s most vibrant and innovative city.
Riders will be expected to tackle an extraordinary variety of conditions – mist, mud, rain, extreme heat and chilling cold – sometimes in the course of the same day. Along the way, full-service, professional rider support will enable participants to focus solely on giving their very best while they discover, first hand, why Colombia truly is one of the most exciting and challenging places to cycle on the planet.
