    So I would imagine 5 batteries would be required to complete this challenge.


    15,000ft of climbing in one day makes the mind boggle …. Really is some feat to achieve!

    I tend to take a rather simplistic view when it comes to human endurance and achievements which is don’t use an ebike to do what others are doing on lung power and don’t use bottled oxygen to artificially reduce the height of any mountain then start bragging about how good you are.

    Fine, cycle up the hill or climb the mountain using any means you want but don’t record it and use it to try and score points, just keep it for yourself and be happy at leaving it there.

    I do use Strava or my Garmin watch to check how far I’ve been or how high on any hills I’ve been up but that’s for my benefit alone and putting those records into public view would be akin to getting someone to carry your gear and using oxygen to do a fastest time on a big mountain
