The Col Collective

The Col Collective - Cycling Tours

Whatever your level of cycling we’d be proud to share the road with you and help you become a better rider. It’s been a huge dream of mine to bring this together, we’ve had such an incredible response to our videos I’m truly appreciative of the support from Col Collectors the world over. This is the next step in bringing the mountains to life even more as we explore some of the most historic peaks, hidden gems and rugged roads together on a journey of escapism, education, intrigue and inspiration.

Wishing you a beautiful season of cycling, we look forward to welcoming you to the mountains of the Pyrénées, a place I’ve dreamt about for so many years, and one that I’m humbled to now call home. For more details visit our tours page.

See you on the cols my friends!
