Time to leave Bogotá and our great host. A bike messenger helps lead us across and out of town. We follow the Rio Bogotá which is a nice downhill. The Rio foams and smells from the output of Bogotá. We stay at a nice farm on a steep hill.
|We keep looking for this wildlife but no luck
It is easy riding down and me leading us on a wrong turn. Ten miles later we are in Carmen de Apicala for the night. The heat has returned as we once again drip sweat.
No easy back roads to get us back on course so back the way we came to get to Purficacion. The road turns to dirt as our bike ride seeks Purficacion. Lots of dump trucks with their dust along the route as we sweat from the heat. Finally we reach Purficacion and get a hotel.
Back on dirt roads heading south. Still hot as we reach the highway and head into Natagaima
Back on highway again for a while and then on to dirt. Tire tube goes after a river crossing. With 5 patches and a seam tear I replace the tube. Then on to Villavieja
