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”.

From Wissembourg to the German border at Cernay near Mulhouse, from the sandstone Vosges in the north to the crystalline Vosges in the south, in ten sections with an average length of 80 km, it covers 3 regions (Alsace, Lorraine and Franche-Comté ) by taking the roads of 6 departments (Bas-Rhin, Haut-Rhin, Moselle, Vosges, Haute-Saone and Territoire de Belfort).
