If you’re heading off to the Alps or Pyrenees with your bike this summer – or anywhere else there may be climbing involved – be sure to tune into the Col Collective’s question and answer session on Facebook this evening.
We’ve featured their videos regularly in recent months, showing Mavic and Cannondale ambassador Mike Cotty tackling some of the sport’s most iconic climbs, and it’s fair to say that outside the professional ranks, few can rival his knowledge or experience.
Taking place between 8pm and 9pm, you’ll have the chance to ask Cotty and the rest of the crew pretty much anything you can think of, ranging from where to ride to how to set up your bike.
Here’s what they have to say:
With the height of the season fast approaching you may have a few questions whirling around your head in preparation for the summer months. What regions to ride or roads to explore, how to travel well, bike set-up, equipment, nutrition tips and anything else that’s on your mind? Time to get your thinking caps on and join The Col Collective and partners for a one hour Q&A open to all!
Join in here from 8pm this evening.
