Top five climbs of the Pyrenees
RCUK’s sportive guru, Mike Cotty, is a man who knows a thing or two about the Pyrenees. He once rode non-stop for nearly 700km across its vertiginous peaks and terrifying descents, so when we asked Mike to share his top five Pyrenean cols, he wasn’t stuck for choice. Cottydale is a rider who knows what of he speaks.
His selections included some of the most famous climbs in cycling, complete with distances and altitudes for the various approaches that can be made to each. First-hand knowledge is a precious commodity, and Mike has it in spades. Luckily for all of us, you can find it on the pages of RCUK.
