If you haven’t been following Ben Hildred, he’s a man who likes riding his bike up and down hills. He also is a big fan of suffering having previously everested Queenstown Bike Park access road and climbed the height of the solar system’s largest mountain in three days.
More recently, he’s been trying to climb 1,000,000 vertical feet within the calender year. Here we are, just over halfway through the year and he has finished. Yes you read that correct, 1 million feet in 200 days.
The stats say it all. Absolutely mind blowing.
For a bit of context, he has effectively been riding an advanced, 3 bar round of the the EWS every day for the last 200 days (This is the second hardest type of course). I honestly don’t know what to say.
I tip my hat to you Ben.
