I’m off to New York for a couple of weeks. Hot, humid, intense roads and happy drivers – not the perfect acclimatisation for the upcoming British hill climb season. But, as long as a I can do a few hill intervals I’ll be happy.
There’s a lot of interest in ‘Everesting‘ at the moment. I got invited to speak on BBC Radio Surrey tomorrow morning 8.50am about the ‘Everesting’ of Box Hill. Unfortunately, I will be dipping into my first American breakfast of fried donuts and corn syrup muffins.
In my keyword statistics I see someone is googling ‘everesting Cat and Fiddle’ – Good luck with that one. That would be a lot of miles to Everest Cat and Fiddle. on the 3% slope. (and you have to cycle on the way down.)
To Everest Cat and Fiddle, you’re looking at 27 times * 330m, which is 13.2 miles per lap (up and down). Total of 343 miles. I wouldn’t recommend with a strong headwind.

I make it 420m ascent and 35m descent – would that 35m be counted as uphill on the way back?
Do you fancy having a go Bhima! It is your local hill.
I don’t think the downhill counts, according to everesting rules.
I think the height may depend where you start climb, can’t remember where I got 330 from.
Tejvan been enjoying reading your blog
Attached are the everesting rules. Altitude gained on the downhill is included
There’s not much chance of everesting anythying in Suffolk, although I did find some worthy adversaries in the west of the county during this weekend’s Three Counties Sportive
I’m very much a beginner, so gentle slopes are my natural habitat
Probably not something I can try in Lincolnshire. I may have to settle for ben-nevising.
