Roadway & Traffic:
Road surface is quality, the shoulder is adequate.  Traffic only intensifies as one returns closer to Bogota, we would advise against riding downhill and continuing South bound to down time Bogota.

Parking:
This climb begins in the town of La Vega, parking options are not an issue
There is a Tea house called Le Petit Jardin at the 2/3 mark of the ascent that overlooks the valley. Stop here for provisions, otherwise, no other options until the summit.

This climb is part of one of two main roads that connect Bogota to the town of Villeta to the northwest on the way to Medellin. The road is a 4 lane divided highway with two lanes going in each direction. The climb proper starts around the town of Nocaima and passes through the town of La Vega which is a very popular start point for the climb. This is an example of a very typical climb in Colombia in that it is quite long but remains quite constant at a manageable grade. The road is a main highway so traffic is quite heavy including a significant amount of trucks, but the fact that there are 2 lanes in each direction means it's not a big issue. The climb from the other direction starting on the outskirts of Bogota and ending at el Vino is much shorter and very popular with the large population of cyclists in the city, specially on the weekends.
