"OVER FIVE TIMES THE HEIGHT OF MOUNT EVEREST"
With many wishing to scale just one of these incredible mountains in their lifetimes, and professionals only audacious enough to climb a handful whilst on tour, these two 9-5 Londoners have decided it’s their calling to climb all nine ... in one sitting. A self-supported endurance voyage embarked on to expose the depth of people’s physical and, in particular, mental capacity.
Starting in the Austrian Alps, we will cycle south over the Carnic Alps (Dolomites) and then head west towards the Italian Alps. We will then continue west over the French Alps and once finally over the lonely Mont Ventoux, we will cycle to the Pyrenees. After this we must make it across the length of Spain (north to south), finishing this epic voyage in Sierra Nevada.
START DATE: 20/05/2019
We plan to complete this ride in under 20 days (targeted 15).
