“We are proud to be part of world-class events like GFNY and I couldn’t think of a better opportunity to share with cyclists the new places we go and personally invite them to join us on an Equipo cycling tour. Not to mention it’s great to be back in the city where I grew up. I have so many wonderful memories of riding in Central Park, Prospect Park, Red Hook – everywhere,” commented Anisha Munoz, President and Co-Founder of Equipo.
Equipo is a global cycling tour company delivering the ultimate team cycling experience in amazing destinations. The husband and wife founders, Anisha and Rene Munoz created and built a brand that is more than a cycling tour, but rather a team experience.

Equipo has featured on past tours, world champion pro cyclist Santiago Botero and his professional development team of rising stars from Orgullo Antioqueno.
“Equipo raises the bar on what it takes to have that right team by your side. I've lived in all different parts of the world, but when I came to reside in Colombia a decade ago, I saw a passionate country that was ready to be rediscovered. The world needs to know Colombia is an amazing place to ride. It is our mission to create unique experiences designed to what each cyclist wants and there has never been a better time to visit. I’m applying everything I have learned from two decades in high-tech corporate toward my passion – with Equipo," adds Anisha Munoz.
Co-founder, Rene Munoz leads many of the tours in Colombia, where he is from. “I have the local insights to bring our cycling experiences to life in each of our destinations: Antioquia, Valle del Cauca, Quindío and soon Boyacá, home of Nairo Quintana. Not only will you be riding your bike, but you’ll see and hear unique, authentic aspects about my country. In Quindío, for example, we’re touring the region where the world’s best coffee grows, and we’ll pass miles of coffee plantations and then demonstrate how it ends up in your cup.”
Pro cyclists like Nairo Quintana, Rigoberto Uran and former champions Santiago Botero, Victor Hugo Pena, Lucho Herrera have grown the curiosity for Colombia, making it a desirable destination and one to explore with a team like Equipo.
Equipo is the only company with a fleet of bikes from Denver, Colorado based - Alchemy. Providing custom carbon fiber bikes in both Colombia and Colorado for clients to rent, making it even easier for travel.
