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 plus our exclusive Col Collective premium mountain essentials kit bag to help improve your riding and get you to the top of the cols in the best shape ever. Now in our forth season (time flies when you’re riding mountains!) for more details check out the new experiences that we have coming up in 2020. From all at The Col Collective, we look forward to welcoming you to the heart of the mountains and beyond! - Mike Cotty
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.
Proving to be a very popular week our Ultimate Dolomites and Italian Alps tour is back and better than ever in 2020! Conquering the most prestigious peaks in the Dolomites and the legendary Passo Stelvio, if you have a passion for Italy then this is going to be an unforgettable week of cycling, adventure and post ride wellness.
With the Vuelta a España set to make a rare appearance in the Hautes Pyrénées on August 23rd, we thought there's no better way to celebrate than with a special Grand Cols week conquering some of the greatest climbs in cycling history including the Aubisque, Aspin, Luz Ardiden, Soulor, Hautacam and friends, with the added excitement of being part of the Stage 9 summit finish on the legendary Col du Tourmalet!
