The concept of Everesting is fiendishly simple: Pick any hill, anywhere in the world and complete repeats of it in a single activity until you climb 29,032ft – the equivalent height of Mt Everest.
Local mountain biker Harrison Biehl will attempt to Everest on June 26 by riding 15 laps of Stanford Rock, and thereby raise $29,032 – one dollar for every foot of elevation gain, in support of TAMBA building more trails on Tahoe’s West Shore.
Biehl is 27 years old, works at Olympic Bike Shop in Tahoe City, and has completed several rides of 15k+ elevation gain. The Everest ride will be his biggest ride to date.
Funds raised will support Tahoe’s West Shore trails including the new single track from Meeks Bay to Lost Lake.
The trail build is part of TAMBA’s strategic plan to build more trails on the West Shore and eventually link the North Shore to the South Shore via epic singletrack.
Show your support for Harrison and TAMBA by making a donation towards his $29,032 goal. Come in person on June 25th at Kilner Park in Tahoe City, where TAMBA will host a celebration before the challenge begins.
