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.
