Description

What makes cycling in the hills of mountains so special? The challenge, the view, the scenery or cycling together with friends? Everyone has their own memories and highlights while biking through the famous hills, or even more over those epic high mountains. Our app helps you achieve your cycling dreams of conquering those iconic mountains from the world of professional cycling. You will never forget that climb because it is now in your myCols profile. A personal profile with all your climbs, times, challenges, jerseys and stories. Moreover, you will find all the details and the app even calculates all your climbing times.

What makes myCols so special?

We have a detailed list of 8000 cols (and more added regularly)
You can search through a list of 8000 famous and less famous climbs in our app. All climbs are provided with a detailed profile, length, height difference, average gradient, region, country, starting point and end point on a map.

We connect our app with Garmin, Strava, Suunto or Wahoo

When connected to Garmin, Strava, Suunto or Wahoo we analyse all you rides and we make a list of all your climbs based on those rides in the past. We even update your profile automatically based on your new rides and climbs.

See your own efforts in your own profile

Based on our own analyses we calculate your climbing times. You even get a message when you conquer some new climbs or made a new personal best time. You can compare your own climbing times with your own past climbing times, climbing times from your friends or even climbing times of some Pro riders.

We don’t have a KOM or QOM because we truly believe that the joy of climbing new mountains gives you more satisfaction, and that is what our app is about.

Make your bucketlist

You can make a list of climbs you still want to conquer. Make a list of climbs you want to conquer while your are on your cycling holiday, or put a climb you just saw on television directly on your bucketlist.

Join our virtual jersey challenges

Compete in virtual challenges based on real climbs! You can find lots of climbs in our app whom are part of our Jersey challenges. When completing all the climbs which are part of the Jersey you get a cool virtual Jersey in your trophy cabinet. With some Jersey challenges you can even win real prizes. We will annouce them in our mailings.

No generic challenges like ride 300km in a month. Because we use real climbs, the Jersey ones are of course much more special and often even epic. You can be really proud if you have earned one of our Jerseys.

Connect to your friends or even follow Pro riders.

Follow your friends while you both are conquering the greatest cols! Find your friends in the app (or invite them), follow them, and enjoy their activities in your timeline. So you are the first to know if your friend conquered that mighty Ventoux or the epic Stelvio.

Share your stories and

Tell everyone your story about that one tough climb, or just that nice little climb in your neighborhood. What made that climb so special for you, what memories do you have of it? Add your story to each col with your best photos or read the stories of other users. Or just use the stories to show off and shine, which of course is also fine.

Cheer for your friends

What's better than watching your friends conquer the most beautiful climbs? Right, cheering them on! From now on it is possible in the app to reward their best rides with a "Bravo!". Oh, and this also works for stories.

History of the climbs

All the history of those famous climbs of the Amstel Gold Race, Tour de Flandres, Milan-Sanremo, Tour of Lombardy, Liege Bastogne Liege, Fleche Wallonne, Tour de France, Giro d’Italia, Vuelta a Espana, Paris-Nice, Tirreno-Adriatico, Dauphiné, Tour de Suisse

Cool app, much improved!

Suggesting local climbs and hooks into Strava makes this a worthwhile app. The ability to add stories/descriptions make it helpful when route planning.

Good but needs attention

iCols is a well designed app and has an impressive database of climbs (cols) mostly in Europe. It's a unique resource in that regard. I fear, however, that the app has stagnated, having not been updated since the end of 2009. It is definitely in need of some work in the following areas:

- Update for iOS4 to take advantage of backgrounding/fast app switching. Currently it just restarts upon return to foreground :(
- Higher resolution icon and graphics for the iPhone 4 retina display.
- Integrate with social networks. Would be cool to share cols/routes I'm looking at with Facebook or Twitter.
- Crowdsourcing! Add a user submitted section so that iCols users can add new climbs to the database via app or website.
- Offline mode. iCols will simply not function without a network connection. Being able to save climbs for offline use just makes sense.

Poor App

To start with the positives, the number of included cols and the way it shows the length and gradient for each is awesome. Unfortunately, there is no mode that lets you browse through the cols in the database. You have to rely on the search function and hoping that the col you are looking for is in the database. Additionally, the database of cols has not been updated since purchasing this app. Also, navigating through this app pulls from your data plan as the col profiles are not downloaded onto the phone. This has the potential to be a great app, but some reconstruction is necessary.
