“A nice beginner ride in Villavicencio. Ideal for acclimatizing and tasting the local culture.
— Eduardo Vergara
The Entrerios ride is ideal to start on a smooth way around the villages of Villavicencio and Restrepo.
The route takes us through the north side of the city of Villavicencio via the municipality of Restrepo and turns to the right to enter an area of dirt roads, farms, and hotels, passing through a channel of streams and creeks that give a particular point of interest to this tour.
The beginning and end of the route is by main road.
Need to Know
Expect a creek crossing at kilometer 9 that can be done sometimes on foot with water to our knees, sometimes on bikes. It all depends on weather.
After the ride, you need to taste fantastic "Rice Bread" typical of the region.
The route starts in "El Amarradero", a perfect meeting place with economic and ample parking, next to a restaurant that has its name next to the roundabout of the Harps.
When leaving El Amarradero, go north by paved road and after 7 kilometers turn right to find a semi-unpaved road that you'll enter into the alley areas and access roads to farms.
Through a sinuous, mostly flat route, you'll arrive at the Caney River, a tributary of Guataquía, which presents us with the first obstacle depending on the time of year and the intensity of the rains.
Once you hit the river, on foot or on the bicycle, continue through sidewalks and secondary roads on some very light ascents. Along the way, you'll pass all kinds of pastures and livestock farms.
The route heads back on the same section you started on, via the inter-municipal route back to Villavicencio.
