Summary

Everesting is your introduction to the extreme cycling challenge that is taking the world by storm. To complete an 'Everesting' is to cycle the height of Mt. Everest (8,848 meters) by ascending and descending a single hill or mountain continuously without breaking to sleep. It's phenomenally challenging for the rider, both physically and mentally but can be completed almost anywhere. All you need is a bicycle and a hill to climb.

Be inspired and learn how it's done from those who have attempted it before. Everesting tells the remarkable stories of those that have completed the challenge (from pros to amateurs). What started as a small grassroots challenge, tried by just a handful of hardy recreational riders, has now exploded into a global phenomenon. More than 10,000 Everestings have been completed in nearly 100 countries. Among those to complete Everestings are Tour de France winners and World Champion cyclists, as well as thousands of ordinary men and women. Jens Voigt, 17-time Tour de France competitor, described his Everesting as: 'One of the toughest things I have done in my life'. You don't need to be a cycling fan or even know much about the sport to appreciate the challenge of climbing the equivalent of the world's highest mountain on your own. The challenge of Everesting is quirky and difficult, and the human stories compelling. Anyone can do it – you can even run or walk it – and more and more are taking up the challenge.
