The first video from The Col Collective has been launched, and the team have tackled one of the most iconic climbs in the Alps - the Col du Galibier. 

The Col Collective is a brand new online resource dedicated to providing cyclists with the inspiration, education and support needed to reach the summit of the greatest mountain passes in the world.

The Col Collective have partnered with experts across every area of cycling - from equipment, nutrition, training, travel, maintenance and a whole lot more - creating a platform that will allow riders to not only learn from others, but also get direct answers to the cycling questions that keep them awake at night.  


Mountain specialist and creator of The Col Collective, Mike Cotty explains: "This is quite a momentous occasion for us - we're proud to present the very first video in Season One, the beautiful Col du Galibier. See how the road evolves, turning from open green land on the lower slopes to an ash-like snowcapped wonderland by the summit." 

Cotty continued: "Every time I ride the Galibier I have the same feeling of pure freedom whilst never being quite sure what the elements will deal on any particular day. Watch now and find out what this truly magnificent mountain holds in store for every rider. Ride safe and thank you for watching." 

For more information about the Col Collective keep your eye on in the coming weeks.
