Coll de Rates, an extremely popular mountain to climb on a road bike
Clichés are there because it is true: The Coll de Rates is an extremely popular mountain to climb on a road bike.

Cyclists from all over Europe come to undertake this climb throughout the year. Do you also have plans to meet this challenge? Then book your Carbon Stevens Ventoux Disc Ultegra (Di2) here.
That this mountain is still a favorite is easy to explain. The Coll de Rates can be driven from two sides. This makes it easy to reach from just about all holiday destinations on the Costa Blanca. For that reason, this climb is included in a number of routes on our Strava account. You´ll find them – as well as other influenced climbs – on Strava.com and search for Allure Bike Rental.
