Everest scaled!

Rogan Smart and Kevin Evans spent over 13 hours riding their bikes up the Longships-extension hill last Sunday in pursuit of smashing the Everest Challenge - a classic endurance trial that involves climbing the amount of elevation equal to the height of Mount Everest, which is 8,848m above sea level - on winter solstice, i.e. the day with the shortest period of sunlight. CXPRESS thanks Rogan, Kevin, Sean Gannon, Danny Aaron, and Nicholas van den Handel for contributing these pics.
