This will be my second big cycle challenge after conquering Ireland last September with my girlfriend Amy.This time around I will be going solo in a test of my mettle and determination.Once again I will be raising money for the Foyle Hospice in Derry, a charity that is very close to my heart as it has looked after many family and friends over the years.

Event details

Everesting Boxhill- A solo cycle challenge

At the beginning of the year I came across a cycling challenge that began in Australia a number of years ago. The challenge is to choose a hill and cycle up it enough times to cover the vertical elevation of Mount Everest at 8,848 metres.
I have chosen to undertake this challenge on Zigzag Road leading up to Boxhill in Surrey. I have worked out that I will have to climb the 2.5 kilometre stretch of road 72 times which will equate to a 360km ride, 16-17 hours in the saddle and to the magic 8,848 vertical metres.
