EVERESTing Challenge – Mission accomplished

EVERESTing Challenge – Mission accomplished

CONGRATULATIONS – Ricky Calvert!!!

EVERESTing Challenge – COMPLETED

 Rick's Challenge completed

EUREKA Cycling club member – Rick Calvert – successfully completed his EVERESTing attempt at 7:40 PM on Wednesday 3rd April 2019.

Like all smart adventurers, Rick had kept a close watch on the weather forecasts.  Subsequently, he moved his challenge forward one day and was rewarded with near perfect weather throughout.

Rick set off just before 3 AM and rode the first 13 laps solo, before the first of many local Ballarat riders joined him.  In fact, Rick would not ride another lap on his own!
Cycling mates from his cafe group – Thinking Man’s Bunch – were prominent throughout the day, as well as many EUREKA Cycling members and Ballarat Sebastopol CC members.
Together, they solved the problems of the world, whilst keeping to Rick’s 6:00 minute to 6:20 minute schedule for each repeat.

Initially Rick planned to complete just the 137 repeats required to reach the 8848 metre elevation gain target, however, as cyclists do, he adjusted his target not once, but twice!

The day was all about Rick’s attempt at the challenge, yet the arrival of spectators and other cyclists is testament to Rick’s popularity in the peloton.  There were many spectators throughout the day.  Some were not the cycling type, some were just smart and donated to Rick’s cause rather than attempt anything like climbing that well known hill.
They came, they watched, they took photos.

Numbers swelled in the late afternoon as word spread via social media that Rick was on target to achieve the feat.
Beers were chilled and pizzas were ordered in anticipation of a post challenge feast.

Then finally, some sixteen hours and forty minutes after starting his quest.  After completing an amazing 140 repeats of Longs Hill Road and spending an equally amazing 14 hours and 45 minutes in the saddle, Rick pulled to the kerb for the final time to the rapturous cheers of the crowd.
The weeks of training and planning had come to fruition.

On this day, Rick Calvert joined a select few in Ballarat who had achieved the “Everest” feat.
There were back slaps and handshakes all round.  Tears flowed – especially from those who had promised to ride one lap…and had to come good on their promise!

Many nods of accomplishment were had, for what had originally started out as a personal test for Rick, had then developed into a bet and finally evolved into a fundraiser for the Fiona Elsey Cancer Research Institute.

Congratulations Rick!

This was a wonderful show of the cycling community coming together to support you.  We were all proud to play a small part in your day!
