Loopers made it !
The 4 Loopers and 3 others all completed our Everest on Saturday, in the dark ! Thanks for your wonderful support and knowing it was for such a worthwhile cause helped us all push through the rain. We are short of the target, so if you know anyone who could donate please feel free to forward them the link to this site. Here are some images from the day.
Two more sleeps
And at the end of the practise ...
Getting ready for the big day - this Saturday !
Loopy Loopers "Everest" their way to France
The Loopy Loopers (Arno, Martin, Mike & Sal) are cycling hill repeats 49 times, covering 375kms and each scaling the height of Everest (8848m) in less than a day!
This is to fund raise for the main challenge, when we will be riding the official route of the 2023 Tour De France, one week ahead of the professionals and finishing 21 stages later in Paris, after 3,400kms.
Every participant commits to raising a minimum amount for the William Wates Memorial Trust (WWMT). The funds raised are entirely separate from the participation fee - donations do not pay for our Tour.
Please reward our pain by giving generously and come along on the day to support, ride with us and help fund raise.
Challenge: Each of us to ride 8848 vertical metres (the height of Everest)
Venue: Hill up to Pie in the Sky , 1296 Pacific Highway, Cowan
Date: 1 April 2023, from 3am to whenever
Support: Come along on the day and ride some laps, cheers us on and support the cafe.
Cause: WWMT - whose mission is to help the most disadvantaged young people keep away from a life of crime and violence and fulfil their potential. This is achieved by giving grants to charities that engage young people through the medium of sports, arts and education.
Thank you to our Sponsors
Enjoy every crazy kilometre

Go Dad, you can do it!! Pedal until your spokes come off!

You guys call me crazy but this puts me to shame. Hope to get out for a lap or two and for your sake here's hoping the weather has cooled down by then!
You guys are an inspiration! I’m donating this hoping you guys donate your wheel to help me up the hill!
I hope the weather is cool for you. I'm glad it's not me on that bike.
