It can be easy to hibernate this time of the year but with a little bit of effort, a winter ride can be just the ticket to get you through the darkest of seasons. Of course, this time of year is not all about bluebird mornings, hard packed trails and post-ride hot chocolates, it’s also a great time to ride some of the world’s most loved trails away from the crowds that the northern hemisphere summer often brings.
Here’s our pick of where to find your inner glow this winter.
With Colombia’s road cyclists gaining worldwide recognition and the country really opening up to tourism, Colombia is fast becoming a check box on every cyclists “bucket list”.

The Barbosa area in Santander has trails with slopes over 3,000 meters high, dizzying descents, jungle areas, and nature reserves. We’re crossing our fingers that Santa delivers on a one-way ticket.
