Located 50 kms (31 miles) south of Medellin, Santa Barbara is a charming town perched on the ridge of the Central mountain range at 1800 meters above sea level (5900 feet). The area is home to several muleteer trails that descend to the Buey river at 800 meters above sea level (2600 feet). These trails were traditionally used by avocado, mango, sugar cane, and lemon farmers to transport their harvest to Santa Barbara’s market, but have now become a playground for mountain bikers.
Several enduro national races have been held here, and the local mountain biking community works closely with the farmers to maintain the trails and support the community. The trails all converge at an abandoned cement factory in the village of «El Cairo,» from which the network takes its name.
