Are you ready for the (ultimate) challenge?
The Everesting Challenge is an international cycling challenge founded by Hells 500 in which participants cycle the equivalent elevation of Mt Everest, in one continuous route.
Only for the brave... To date, only 56 UAE residents have participated in this challenge. Set yourself the ultimate NY resolution to add to that number in 2023!
We believe the best way to prepare and take part in a challenge like this is to do it as a part of a team. Although this is an individual achievement, having the support and encouragement of those around you can boost morale, share help and advice and provide that extra boost on those harder moments on the incline. as well as the experience and advice from organisers who have trained for and undertaken the challenge as well.
