I don't know how I lived in London for years without a bike. As soon as I started commuting to an office job ~4 years ago, my body, mind and the city was transformed for the better.

It's a tough job... but someone has to do it. Yesterday, on my way to @nairoquincoficial home state of Boyacá, we made a quick stop at one of Bogota's most popular bike shops @elgallo.cc, which also acts as a great meeting point for cyclists to start their routes out of the city.
There, two lovely cyclists, Carolina and Catalina, were getting ready to start their daily ride, a quick, 50km uphill training session. We spoke a bit about cycling in Spain, of course, before they took off.
I was also lucky enough to meet the shop's owner, Mr. Pradilla, a shrewd business man, who also lent a friendly ear to my "come to ride in Spain" speech.
Colombia has just been one great surprise after another. Lovely people all around and such passion for cycling! Thanks to all the wonderful people I have met here! :) It truly has been a pleasure.
