The Club des Cent Cols
Founded in 1972
We are a cycling club, 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.
Because of the current health situation, the Conseil d’Administration held its meeting on the 21 March by videoconference. It was decided to postpone the Lavagna séjour till the spring of 2021.
