this is the OTRO Ricardo...
I left Bogota about 10 years ago, so i don't really know of any current developments, but one thing i can tell you is "La calera" was far better with Out the Disco's and all the "Paraderos"
I skate and landluge down that hill a thousend times when i was younger and then I climp that mountain (6,8 kilometers and about 550 meters altitude change)(Bogota is already a 2650meters above sea level) at least 4/5 times per week for about 12 years on my way to many of the Incredible single tracks and even bigger highs at the top of the city...
Alison Do you remenber Monserate....??
the mountin with the church on top but with out a road to get to it, )so you can only use the teleferic gondola, lift), we climp to it from the back of the mountain and when down the endless amount of stairs,,yeah no suspension, no disc brake,,hell ones we did it on my ibis tandem, but the stairs prove to be a little to much and we walk about 2000 steps downwards...
anyway muy chevere tener otro Colombiano por aqui, eso si le quiero decir que hay un millon de caminos super angostos(single track) en las montanas cercanas a la ciudad sin contar Suesca, chia, villeta, melgar y todos estos otros sitios
Ricardo si tiene Contacto con los de la vieja guardia(Yo emepeze en 1983) de las bicis de montana (Nestor castillo el super mecanico y todos los demas) mandeles saludes de "Patineto" y dijales que me acuerdo cada rato de las salidas a las 5 de la manana para subir a la calera.
