challenge completed!

We’re four old guys cycling up the equivalent height of Mount Everest.

We have to continuously cycle 39 times up and down Froggatt hill in Derbyshire to reach 29,029 feet.

We estimate it will take us about 26 hours – we can rest, but we can’t sleep!

Our training began in May 2017 and we’re still looking for a few more cyclists to join us – so please get in touch if you’re interested.

A huge thank you to all our sponsors and supporters – especially local company KILPI who are providing us all with high quality bike clothing.


We did it! It took some of us 26 hours – but we rode, crawled and sweated our way up and down Froggat hill in sizzling temperatures to reach the height of Everest. The support was incredible – thank you everyone who camped out along the road side to cheer us on through the day and night.

And thank you to everyone who sponsored us.

It was an experience none of us will ever forget…
