    Brilliant Tim!! first to do it as well and I do hope Hells 500 recognise your Everesting, especially as it's such a hard thing to do anyway let alone on an ElliptiGO.

    Mark Payne we discussed ElliptiGO verification with Hells 500 a few months ago and they are very supportive, so they confirmed they will verify any ElliptiGO rides that are successful.

    Great effort, Tim! I looked at the road you climbed on Google Street View .... looks extremely narrow with low visibility around curves. Did you have to continually ride the brakes to reduce the risk of a dangerous encounter with a car? How did your brakes and rims hold up? When I did the Fargo Street hill climb (34% grade climbing and descending, 60 repeats totaling 10000 feet), my rims became insanely hot.

    I originally planned on a steeper hill over 25% in places and had a running parachute to slow descent this had 19% bits but I found it manageable. I tried not to constantly ride the brakes and instead brake hard at certain points. I've uploaded a video of a descent somewhere. It's also very bumpy in places, had to learn the best line. I guess because the ascent is longer, three times the ascent per repeat, the rims had a chance to cool although I never felt them anyway.

    A chute would definitely help on the fargo St descent.

    That is a steep Street Chris Zito, would love to try it out one day, did you go straight up or side to side,

    Lots of switch-backs. I went up straight the first time, but that takes a crazy amount of torque and I decided I need to save my energy for the long haul. https://www.strava.com/activities/272606650

    Did I read that correctly? 52.3 mph!!!!

    I very much doubt that's accurate Jeanne, Top speeds rarely are.

    Cracking effort Tim! Yep, I reckon you're right that this is the first on an EliptiGO - double congrats! Most importantly, this ride is now sitting in the www.everesting.cc hall of fame!
