Booyan Crescent – Double Everest

  17696 In April of 2015, I Everested Mount Kosciuszko for a second time, reaching an altitude of 10,500 vertical meters which was a personal record for me.

The Limit: 5 Weeks in Hell

After hearing about Everesting I knew this was something I must do. I picked a hill road about 4k Meters of it as a preview and told myself, this will be easy! The next week on a random day starting at midnight the ride was on, 18 hours of mind numbing repeats and my gps […]

The Limit: Horrible Hill

I’d done an Everesting.  I didn’t think I was going to do another.  “Been there, done that” – you know the drill.  Then one day on a solo training ride, I got to thinking whether the road I was training on could be Everested.  I was cutting repeats on Jells Rd, Wheelers Hill in Melbourne, known […]
