  1. Thanks again for your great report and photos Vince. I rode the 3 col loop of Allos Colmar and Cayolle back in 2019, this brought back some great memories. The 3 col loop can be ridden in either direction and was in great condition when I was there. With over 3,000 metres of climbing it’s a long day but well worth it!

    1. Thanks for your comment Martin.
      And well done for doing the 3 col loop!
      Indeed that loop has been on my list since last year. I’ve planned it from Guillaumes but may change that to near Barcelonette. From the profile chart it looks like the climbs are less steep going clockwise. Hopefully I’ll be posting a report on that ride in the near future.

  2. Hi Vince, I rode the loop in a counter-clockwise direction from Barcelonette and there was new pavement from Colmar up to the Col de Champs, so it was a very nice ascent. I’m sure it will be just as sweet from either side. Enjoy!
