OCD stands for 'Ordre des Cols Durs' - 'the club of the hard cols' - a French cycle club of which we are the British-based English language equivalent. OCD Cycloclimbing acts mainly as an information exchange for cyclists who enjoy cycling in the mountains. If they wish, Members can claim pass heights each year and progress through grades of membership. Otherwise they can simply enjoy the Audax UK magazine, Arrivée and the online forum; Members are of course encouraged to contribute to the magazine and pass guides.
The Guides are produced from the feedback of Cycloclimbing members and are available at a discount to Members, so please keep us informed! Information on other areas is also available, often from old OCD magazine articles - contact the Touring Secretary. OCD Cycloclimbing also maintains a small library of books and maps available for loan to members only.
|Date||Name of Col||Location/Map Ref.||Height, m||Notes|
Michelin map 218, panel 17
** the notes are optional but we would like to hear of points of interest, whether you enjoyed the route, preferred alternatives, surface quality, gradients, remote and/or helpful hotels or campsites and anything else to improve our guides in a way you would have found useful. (It's very helpful if you also give the OCD pass number from the guide).
A French club for which we are the UK contact, membership is open to anyone who has cycled up at least 100 different cols of which at least five per hundred must be over 2000m. A Col may only be claimed once in your cycling career. Cols must be identified by name on a recognised map or equivalent. There is no minimum height requirement. A claim for 100 Cols Club should take the same form as for OCD Cycloclimbing but the pass heights do not have to be totalled. Rules in English.
Claims should be submitted between 1st Dec and 31st January - the first claim will be for Cols ridden to date, subsequent claims for new Cols ridden during the year. You can send in claims via OCD-UK.
