The Club des Cent Cols

Rédigé par Enrico ALBERINI

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.
