Mike Cotty rides 690km Pyrenees challenge in 30hrs 43mins

We’ve just received word that Mike Cotty has completed his epic Pyrenees coast-to-coast challenge, a 690km ride, in a staggering time of 30hrs 43mins.

Mike set off yesterday morning and his route, which he rode non-stop through the night, included the feared climbs of the Aubisque, Soulor, Tourmalet, Aspin and Peyresourde to name a few. Certainly no walk in the park.

We were able to follow Mike’s ride live via a GPS app on his smartphone that relayed his position to this article.

Right now, Mike is in good spirits, with the only complaint being a sore neck. We’ll have more from Mike early next week, once he’s recovered enough to tell us his story.

You can find out more about Mike at his website, www.mikecotty.co.uk and follow him on Twitter @cottydale.
