On the 23rd September 2008 I fly to Nepal, then onto Tibet. I am going to ride my unicycle 1000km (620 miles) across the Roof of the World, from Lhasa, the capital of Tibet, to Kathmandu, the capital of Nepal. I will be using this ride to raise as much money as possible to help fund an NGO (non-governmental organisation) and its projects to improve the educational facilities and amenities in a remote village in the Himalayas.
The 47-year-old unicyclist has ridden all over the world, but never a path this difficult. The chosen route is one that mountain bikers consider an extreme adventure, but it's never been done on a unicycle. The average elevation of the route is 4,000 meters, and temperatures go down to 15 below zero (+5F). He will cross the north face of Mount Everest and stay over at the Everest Base Camp. The trip should take 25 days. The project is underwritten by a bicycle tour company. Donations will benefit the The Hilly Region Development Club. Link -Thanks, Plumsie!
