The Club des Cent Cols

Founded in 1972

We are a cycling club founded in 1972, made up of men and women of all ages, all nationalities, and all cycling disciplines.  We seek out mountain passes (cols)to climb, but we are not a competitive club – our members cycle at their own pace, where and when they wish, on roads or mountain trails, alone or in groups.  Some members may climb less than ten cols a year, others over a hundred.  But we have all met the main Rule of the Club, which stipulates that, to become a member, you must have climbed (by bike, using only your own muscle-power) at least one hundred different cols, with five out of each hundred being over 2000m high.

Jean Perdoux, founding president of the Club des Cent Cols, died on 13 March at the age of 87. A long page in the history of the Club des Cent Cols has been turned. We have lost our guide, not his ideas.
