JustGiving – the easiest way to fundraise and donate to charity online
Our Summer Mountain Bike Partners Start Line mtb are runnig a great event in Tignes this summer in aid of Altzheimer’s Research UK – the Mount Everest & Mont Blanc Challenge.
The challenge -
Ride a downhill mountain bike down the vertical height of Mount Everest or Mont Blanc in a day. That’s 8,848 meters!!! or for those who don t feel up to Mount Everest, why not try the vertical height of Mont Blanc at 4,810 meters?
Now don’t get confused here…They’re are not riding down Mount Everest and Mont Blanc…they’re riding the same vertical height on the trails of Tignes.
How long will it take? It depends how fast you ride, but anywhere between 20 mins. to 45 mins. per lap, approximately 9 laps to do Mont Blanc and 19 laps for Everest depending on which route you take
Join in the fun -
This is an open event so anyone can join in the fun. create a ‘Just Giving’ account and click ‘join the team’ then share with your friends to get sponsorship.
If you don’t join the team don’t worry, you can still turn up on the day and get involved by paying the 10€ entry fee.
After that all you need is to get yourself to Tignes on the 17th July 2014 with a bike and a GPS device or a smart phone with the downloadable app Strava.
