The Club des Cent Cols V2

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.

Renaming catalogues

To enable members to better follow the evolution of our catalogues – especially when several modifications sometimes succeed in a single day – the files that are available to download will be named in such a way that shows the date they were modified and the version number of the catalogue.

The version is a number that increases at each update  – however small – of the catalogue since the start of the database.

For example, instead of ‘catFR-fr.xlsx’ , we’ll have’catFR-fr-231031-009.xlsx’  where 231031 represents the date (format year-month-day to make filtering easier) and 009 represents the number of the version.
In addition, on the catalogue download page, a new column shows you the version number of each catalogue.
