How's the Weather? in Andes

The SpringMarch to May
Although Colombia's annual temperatures don't waver too much, spring showers are fairly intense during the spring, so not ideal for cycling.
The SummerJune to August
Bring your raincoat! There is a high chance of it raining for at least a couple days of your trip, however this in no way makes it any less fun. Embrace the adventure and experience Colombia authentically as possible - and that includes a bit of precipitation.
The Autumn September to November
The end of rainy season begins during Autumn, and the vivid nature shifts size slightly, but is still green year-round. As the temperature is mostly the same in every season, you'll be riding in a comfortable 25 degrees Celsius.
The WinterDecember to February
Winter is the driest of seasons, with much less rain and a small increase in temperature. However, higher located areas will still be in the mid-twenties.
