Project Description

So this is quite a momentous (and if the truth be known nervous) occasion for us and 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. 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. So what does it mean when half of the sheep are sat down and the other half are stood up? Are they the weather gods of the mountain? Watch now and find out what this truly magnificent mountain holds in store for every rider.

We hope you enjoyed this video. For more help and advice visit our website at and don’t forget to sign up to our free newsletter to get the latest updates and become part of the col community.

Please help share our story with your friends and fellow riders, leave us a comment, subscribe to the channel and get in touch on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. We want you to be as much of this journey as we are, together riding bikes and helping each other along the way.

Ride safe and thank you for watching.
