Everesting on a bike is a simple concept; pick a hill and ride as many repeats as needed to climb the height of Mt Everest. A total of 8,848 metres elevation gain in a single ride where stops are allowed but sleep is not. You can read the full Everesting rules here.
There have been Everesting attempts in Singapore so this is not a new concept. Alan Grant’s Mt Faber Everesting in 2014 is a great example of what the ride will entail.
On January 20th 2018 I will attempt to Everest Hendon Road and hope to raise money for Qhubeka and the cycling community in Singapore. By completing this challenge I hope to raise $5,000 for Qhubeka and $5,000 for cycling in Singapore.
Why do this? Well, why not?
I like to challenge myself and starting 2018 with a challenge seems like the best way to get the year started.

Massive Mike! This will be a true mental challenge. Good luck!!!
Great to hear you are doing this and raising some money at the same time ! It’s a tough challenge but pace yourself, eat well and you’ll smash it. Also great to see that you signed up for our July Everest trip too. A group of us are considering staying a few days longer on the trip and having another crack at Everesting Everest. If all goes well in Singapore you should join us. Also in the early stages of planning some fundraising around it and Qhukeba is on my list as well. Good luck with it and see you in Tibet.
Wow – wish I could be with you on the 20th! Thanks for supporting 2 great causes too 🙂
Your creativity in taking my money knows no limits. Good luck 🙂
You’ll suffer like a dog…I’ll be there to watch. 😀
Go Mike! While I dont personally know you, cycling for charity is always a worthy cause. Remember to eat well, pace yourself well and it will all be mental, more than physical.
