Mike Cotty – Challenge Les Alpes

Photo from Mavic Facebook page.

Mike Cotty started a non-stop 666km ride through the heart of the French Alps from Evian Les Bains to Nice. The ride will take in 17 mountain passes and 16,000 metres of elevation, almost the equivalent of climbing Mount Everest TWICE! This is about as extreme as ride inspiration can get, there may be longer rides to inspire you (PBP for example) but not with this amount of climbing.
