TOOLBOX: I wanted to find out about Everesting, the cycling challenge to climb the vertical height of Mt. Everest; so I could take my own shot and hopefully succeed. Today, I describe my experience and how you should prepare in order to effectively fuel and plan ahead for a successful Everesting attempt; on a bike.
Last week we reported on the Canadian Everesting record, now it's the turn of Ireland and Ronan McLaughlin. Ed Hood caught up with the man in the Emerald Isle after recorded a very good time of just over 8 hours for the 8,848 metres elevation. On Thursday he took the World record.
Some ideas just sound crazy - Everesting could well be one of them. But when Jordan Cheyne's buddy, Braden Kersey, suggested going for the Canadian record... 'Why the hell not?' was the answer. Here is how the daring duo's day went.
Ride Mount Everest? That sounds crazy, but think about it; find a local hill and ride up it so many times to equal the height of the Worlds highest peak. Lee Rodgers is about to tackle 'Everesting' and gives us the Lowdown on the daunting task of climbing 8,848 meters in one day.
