You don’t usually Everest in a country where the highest peak is 105 m above sea level. 3 of us took on the challenge and had an amazing (night) day as a result. Chas has put together a great video of […]
Ever since I was a kid and found out about this mythical mountain, Mt Everest, I knew I wanted to see it for myself. Years of watching documentaries and learning more about the mountain only increased my desire to one day visit it myself.
After reading a CyclingTips article where a few riders tried an Everesting on Everest, with SerkCycling, I knew I’d found a way to visit Everest.
The DK200 is a formidable beast and one which could not be completed without support. I was lucky enough to ride the DK with Rob who had his wonderful wife running support which meant I had the luxury of knowing at least 2 people at each checkpoint!
Have a look at the kit, gear and nutrition I used to get through the ride.
Setting out for a long ride is different to setting out for a normal weekend loop. This route is a 250 kilometre loop through Johor, Malaysia, starting from Woodlands and ending in Pengerang.
The Kulai loop is a 90 kilometre loop through Malaysia, with very few traffic lights or interruptions. The road surface is generally good and the traffic usually minimal. Being country roads you do get cars and trucks passing each other, but most drivers in Malaysia are very respectful of cyclists.
Everesting in Singapore is possibly one of the greatest challenges you could undertake, one which I’m happy to have attempted. At this moment in time it beat me, but I will regroup and re-attempt shortly.
I want to thank anyone who took the time to donate, share, like, comment, join us for a short or long time on Saturday or simply post anything about the attempt. Every single one of you made this attempt a success.
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.
The festive season is upon us as the year draws to a close, and what better time to relax, put your feet (and legs) up and reflect on your year of achievements. Now is also the time of year where every cyclist should set some New Years resolutions.
Malaysia has some wonderful mountain ranges to cycle. Kuala Lumpur is a staple for a lot of Singaporeans but I’ve ridden KL quite a few times so I looked further north, and decided to checkout Ipoh for a change.
