Theme

The Club des Cent Cols, founded in 1972 and affiliated to the French Federation of Cyclotouring, has prepared this “Randonnée Permanente” based on a simple theme: “One Hundred Cols”. The completion of these one hundred cols will allow you either to join the Club, or to progress with your list in the Club’s “Tableau d’Honneur”.

The Jura massif is vast: it stretches 340 km between the Isère and the Upper Rhine, and 65 kmbetween Besançon and Neuchâtel. Our tour crosses 2 countries, 4 French departments and 2 Swiss cantons.  It has few flat roads but offers up quitesuperb landscapes.
