118/365 - March 1st 2018
This had been forecasted for a while, a fierce blizzard from Siberia, brining snow and bitterly cold winds. Some parts of the UK had already been affected yesterday but now it was our turn. I only had an inch or so initially but it steadily built up throughout the day.
Luckily that didn't affect my plans, which was a challenge I set myself on the Wattbike: Everesting. Essentially climbing the height of Everest (8848m) in one ride and one climb. Not an easy feat but I was hoping I would be rested enough after returning from the UAE. This was evidently not the case as I only made it just over half way before throwing in the towel. Still....5150m of climbing and just over 7 hours on the bike still took some doing! Next time.....
