the  brotherhood  of  the  'toqués  du  col  de  portes'

If you are a cycling enthusiast of mountain roads and beautiful landscapes, you should have already joined this brotherhood!


To integrate it, you just have to take up the challenge of climbing the Col de Portes on the same day 2 to 5 times by different access roads.

You have the choice between 8 villages starting and 9 different ascents, all ending in one of the two final slopes with a percentage of more than 10%.


Once you have been approved, you will be included in the list of winners, at the grade corresponding to your level.


The Col de Portes (also called Calvaire de Portes) is a mountain pass situated at 1,010 meters of altitude in the Bugey (Jura massif) near the Calvary and the Chartreuse de Portes.


This is the playground for all cycling enthusiasts in the region. His roads are sparse. It is one of the highest and most difficult passes in the region and it is especially close to the agglomerations of Lyon and Bourg-en-Bresse.


It is located in the southern end of the Jura in the department of Ain. It allows the passage from the valley of the Rhône to the valley of the Cluse des Hôpitaux.


To get an idea, you can see some photographs on the dedicated page of the website.


In the 'practical tips' page, you will learn how to validate the challenge, where to eat, where to find water and where to park.
