Harder than an IM, for sure.

The pity is they will only register one person per hill, so you can't do it as a social event where several of you ride the same hill on the same day.

Pops... reading the rules, you can register an Everesting as a group provided you all finish around the same time, and not hours apart.

Serious crazy challenge though!

Cheers Magna didn't know that.   A guy in our club has just done it, Beeley in Derbyshire if anyone knows it.

i looked at this with Rosey and using Cat n Fiddle to complete the attempt. we'd be looking at 24 hrs from memory.

So, using the Cat n Fiddle out of Macclesfield this route has a gain of 1626ft = 495.60m

That would require 8,848m / 495.60m = 17.85 reps.

Just read he rules - looks like my charity ride won't qualify as it will be loops of Arthur's seat - think it will be 100 laps to hit the distance.

Cat and Fiddle from Macclesfield is very gradual though - a lot of almost or actual flat in it - I reckon you'd be wasting a lot of energy going forwards rather than gaining altitude though if you were doing it for charity using an iconic climb probably works best.
