How hard would it be to climb the height of Mount Everest in a single ride? That is, riding until you climbed 29,029 feet. So what about Everesting on Mount Everest?
If there’s a more difficult way to tackle that feat, it hasn’t occurred to us. Selene interviewed Shannon Bufton who runs a tour company that took people to Everest base camp to ride a 1.5-mile stretch of road that climbed at 5 percent. Zhuangchen “JJ” Zhou of Hong Kong completed the feat, with 177 trips up the road for 263 total miles ridden in roughly 26 hours.
