Kingston Wheelers virtual bike ride up the world's Seven Summits

Well done and congratulations to the 61 cyclists from the Kingston Wheelers Cycle Club who took on the challenge of cycling the equivalent height of the world’s Seven Summits over the weekend of 18 – 19 April. Using the virtual Zwift and/ or RGT Cycling on static training bikes from their own homes, the team’s gargantuan efforts smashed their ascent goals, climbing some 206,996 metres, over four times the combined height of the highest peaks on each of the seven continents – Carstensz (4884m), Vinson Massif (4892m), Elbrus (5642m), Kilimanjaro (5895m), McKinley (6194m), Aconcagua (6961m) and Everest (8848m).

They also managed to smash all expectations for their fundraising with the total raised standing at over £13,000 – an amazing effort by all involved.
