Welcome to The Col Collective - Cycling Tours
It’s been a lifelong dream to be able to offer more than just videos to all of our amazing Col Collectors out there and now that dream is a huge reality as we’re proud to bring you The Col Collective - Cycling Tours! From the grand cols to undiscovered roads, a trip to Le Tour or an intro to the mountains. From foothills to over 2,000m high peaks we’ve got a lot to offer from our base in the Hautes-Pyrénées. Tourmalet, Aubisque, Soulor, Hautacam, Luz Ardiden, Aspin, Cauterets, Cirque de Gavarnie, Troumouse, Couraduque, Spandelles, Hourquette d’Ancizan and so much more from our door, plus unique experiences in the Dolomites, Italian Alps and on the mythical slopes of Mont Ventoux! So, if mountains are your thing then we have a climb (or ten) calling your name! Let The Col Collective take care of you with quality boutique accommodation, luxury transport and on the road support to help improve your riding and get you to the top of the cols in the best shape ever. Now in our fifth season (time flies when you’re riding mountains!) for more details check out the new experiences that we have coming up in 2021. From all at The Col Collective, we look forward to welcoming you to the heart of the mountains and beyond! - Mike Cotty
Half a decade bringing you the greatest mountain experiences imaginable, we're proud to present to you our new 2021 cycling tours. Whatever your level of cycling we're here to support you in your journey towards the summit and becoming a more accomplished mountain rider.
The French Pyrénées are a wonderland of exploration and intrigue with many areas often overlooked in search of the more famous cols. Our Undiscovered Pyrénées week is all about heading off the beaten track, taming rugged wilderness and riding in awe at what can so easily be missed.
Our Into the Wild gravel tour is for those that have been bitten by the gravel bug and want to go much deeper off the beaten track, mixing roads with high altitude tracks and trails to get a very different perspective on the wild and rugged landscapes of the Pyrénées.
Our legendary Ultimate Dolomites and Italian Alps tour is taking a momentary rest while the Covid19 bubble passes and will be back in 2022. If conquering the most prestigious peaks in the Dolomites along with the legendary Passo Stelvio is in your heart this is the tour for you, offering a truly unforgettable week of cycling, adventure and post ride wellness.
