    Everesting! Has anyone every attempted it?

    Hey team, as the title states just curious if anyone has tried it. I will making an attempt this year it will be for a cause near and dear to me but wanted to know if anyone has given one a go. I know for sure that in Canada there has been very few only 1 that I know of possibly 3 including my attempt.

     

    But I will share info as it becomes available,  would love some company for a few of the reps and some general encouragement its going to be a long day... but I am way too determined to fail !

     Share questions, thoughts, or ideas... anything that may help up make this great

    I've done 3. It definitely becomes a mental battle as riding up and down the same stretch of road is amazingly mind numbing lol. The best way through is having other riders join you every now and then, particularly in the later stages, as this gives you some distraction. Good luck with it #Hells500
    cheers

    I know someone in Calgary who has completed it (don't think he has a Cervelo, though)....person I know from the Ride to Conquer Cancer. He ended up taking most of the day (17.5 hrs) going up and down the Tuscany Hill 161 times and it was 361 km horizontally for his climb. He did over 9000m just to be sure he got it done.

     

    Where are you located? I'd join in support if I am anywhere near you.I am also willing to get you any advice I can (or get you in touch with the guy I know who did it).

    Hey buddy,

     

    I am in Ontario, and yes were looking at 18hours to get it done.  Roughly the same numbers you quoted there.

     Ok...might not be able to be there to help out with some laps then (it's a long ride from Alberta to meet up). I'll still be sending good vibes your way the day of.

     

    Let me know if you want me to put you in touch with Nigel :)
