Riding Up Kilimanjaro

Pro mountain biker, Rebecca Rusch, and adventurer, Patrick Sweeney, rode up African’s highest mountain, Kilimanjaro… and then rode down.

Okay, rode up is not quite true. They rode as much as they could, and dragged their bikes and gear over the really tough parts.

The rough terrain and steep incline are only part of the problem. At over 19,000 ft, your lungs will be burning and you’ll be gasping for air like a guppy out of water.

The pair did the ride in support of World Bicycle Relief, an organization dedicated to mobilizing people by providing bicycles to people without transport.
