Video: The Col Collective’s Boulder Big Ride

Ex pros, high altitudes and dirt roads in Boulder, Colorado

We’re used to the Col Collective treating us to videos of some of the most stunning climbs to ride from across the world.

Now, it’s time for something different – but, insists Mike Cotty, that doesn’t mean it’s any easier.

The Col Collective teamed up with former US national champion Timmy Duggan and Craig Lewis, a former team-mate of Mark Cavendish at HTC-HighRoad to explore the best Boulder, Colorado, has to offer.
