Tempting, don't you have mother's day duties? Or is your mindboggling ability to procure leav passes striking again?

the steepest hill may not be the best choice, although having said that, the right gearing is probably more critical.

Choose a hill where a strong tailwind can be found and pick the right day :)

Just wondered if anyone else had noticed the two gentleman who 'everested' the hill beside Taronga Zoo yesterday?

They climbed it 100 times over 14 hours.

You can see photos on Instagram under @stravacycling and @hells500.

Another crazy 'Everesting' completed:
http://www.strava.com/activities/223073006

This guy, Brian Toome, is a prodigious rider. He averages about 600km a week and is (was) credited to hold the most number of KOM's on Strava. As he lives in the middle of nowhere and creates all the segments he rides (and is often the only person to have completed the segment) this may not be too hard to explain.

But 18 hours of riding and over 400km is still a fair achievement.

That elevation profile is a bit weird - each lap the peak drops in altitude.
