The Col Collective

Cycling inspiration and education

The Col Collective

I’ve ridden in the mountains for years and every time I’m completely captivated by the experience. It’s as if the higher you climb, the mountain evolves to form a new world right before your eyes. Landscapes, wildlife, natural beauty. It’s true that to climb any mountain is a difficult task, but it shouldn’t all be about pain and suffering. I wanted to try and bring the special moments of every climb to life in a unique way that hasn’t been seen before, and that are sometimes easy to miss as you pass on by, whilst also using my experience to try and form a resource that’s really focused on helping cyclists to experience the same feelings when they ride. From videos to cycling tours in the mountains, that’s the essence of The Col Collective. I hope you enjoy the ride!
