- What's the highest altitude you've ridden at?
Personally, over 4,000m in Bolivia. Shame no one’s trumped the OP yet, starting the thread and showing off just isnt on.
I do have a friend who’s carried an exercise bike to the south col of Everest at just under 8,000m for a BBC show, I’ll see if I can get him to put wonny j in his place.Posted 9 years agoBigJohnSubscriber
PQ, who used to be a forum member and who likes long solo expeditions on the bike, tells of a ride in India where he took a 2-day detour to ride what is widely advertised throughout India as being “the highest road in the world”. When he got to the top his GPS unit disagreed. He had ridden 2 much higher passes in the previous week.
Don’t believe the publicity kids.Posted 9 years agolardmanMember
well… i’ve pedaled about 20 metre’s at top of the Thorong La pass, as have some others here. I soon gave the bike back to the little Nepalese man, who was making me look like a fool with my gasping and throwing up a lung. He pedaled off seeming unaware of the ridiculous height and lack of oxygen.
I returned to my cup of tea, and spliff.Posted 9 years agojames-oMember

Dont think Brian head is really 14,000ft…. 😉
Did they really ride up Kilimanjaro, I assume they carried their bikes up the scree from the base camp? And you’d need Macaskill trials skills to reach the true summit on a bike. Bikeradar says they also rode the Snowdon Horseshoe, another exageration I guess. It might “only” be an easy scramble, but it isnt rideable (I’d even challenge Macaskill and Leech to do it).
Respect though, I tend to use ski lifts and gondolas to get above 1,000mPosted 9 years ago
