The day began hot and steep with flat(ish) sections as they descended into Switzerland’s Rhone Valley. They passed through the 2,000 year old Swiss towns, Martigny, Sion and Sierre before reaching their bed for the night in Simplon. Day 2, Thursday 16th August: Simplon to San Bernardino157 km with 2,240 m ascentDeborah and her fellow cyclists at the top of the big climb, five miles from their hotel and suffering from cramp but with big smiles.“Today was tough as it is the longest day in the saddle: more than eight hours and 2600 metres of climbing. Our big climb at the end of the day took its toll on the group as we had already cycled 100 miles. It was 33 degree Celsius so keeping cool and drinking enough was a challenge. Sadly, two guys had to get in the van so they cannot receive the Raid medal. It shows how hard the first day was. Tomorrow is slightly shorter and slightly less climbing but of course we will have today’s ride in our legs. Just need to rest now.”Day 3, Friday 17th August: San Bernardino to Saint Mortiz121 km with 2,590 m ascentDay 4, Saturday 18th August: Saint Mortiz to Prato Allo Stelvio125 km with 2,880 m ascentDay 5, Sunday 19th August: Prato Allo Stelivo to Selva Val Gardena168 km with 2,680 m ascentDay 6, Monday 20th August: Selva Val Gardena to Cortina108 km with 3,100 m ascentDay 7, Tuesday 21st August: Cortina and back55 km with 1,550 m ascentDay 8, Wednesday 22nd August: Cortina to Tolmezzo156 km with 2,700 m ascentDay 9, Thursday 23rd August: Tolmezzo to Trieste134 km with 500 m ascentDay 10, Friday 24th August: Travel homeTo support Deborah’s incredible journey to raise money for homelessness, please click here.
