On August 5-6th 2013 Mike Cotty undertook a personal challenge to see if it is possible to ride non-stop from Évian-les-Bains to Nice across the heart of the Alpes, an unknown journey of 677km with 17 mountains an over 16,000m of climbing. See how Mike tackles the stifling heat of the Col de la Madeleine, wind of the Col du Glandon and Col du Galibier by night in part one of this two part series.
