A century of Everesting

Everesting is a devilishly simple concept. Find a hill, and ride up and down that piece of road until your elevation gain exceeds the height of Mount Everest (8,848m). Sound like fun? You should do one! All the details are available at

Jono Egan did his first Everesting in 2014, and in the last seven years, has racked up 100 completed attempts. Set out below are some of the charts I prepared in celebration of that epic milestone. The hall of fame ride data was supplied by Note that the values shown in the charts below are only those from the Everesting rides - none of the data from the training undertaken to complete these rides is included.

As always, you can mouse over each of the charts for more information.
