In 2004, he joined Colón de Santa Fe and in 2005 he moved to Boca Juniors where he only played 3 games (all in the Copa Libertadores) before moving to Mexico to play for Puebla F.C..
In 2005 Bedoya returned to Colombia to play for Atlético Nacional and in 2006 he joined Millonarios. After he went for a brief time to Envigado FC. But then joined Boyacá Chicó F.C. for the 2010 season.
In 2011, Bedoya signed a one-year contract with Independiente Santa Fe.
Bedoya has the ignominy of being the professional footballer with the most red cards to his name (46 red cards). In the Bogota derby between Independiente Santa Fe and Millonarios on 23 September 2012, he received his 41st red card in a professional game, being sent off for the elbow and subsequent kick to the head aimed at Millonarios player Jhonny Ramirez. The offense also got him suspended for the next 15 matches. Bedoya has been sent off multiple times since.
He was the starting left back for the Colombia national football team from 2001–2006. During that time he was part of the Colombia squad that won the Copa América 2001.
