2017 XTREME EDITION 2: Thabang Childrens Project | Little Eden Society

Yes, they were actually crazy enough to do it again! And this year it turned out to be more like a triathlon than a cycle challenge, with cyclists literally climbing mountains and swimming through rivers with their bikes in the air! Heavy rainfall during the preceding weeks resulted in the already terrible road surfaces faced on day 2 being almost completely non existant and the new route that had cyclists climbing over and then down the escarpment on day 3 posed a bigger challenge than anyone could have predicted.

The Lesotho High Altitude Cycle Challenge is exactly that. Intended to test a cyclist’s ability to handle extreme conditions, murderous climbs, terrifying down-hills and grueling distances on terrible roads, all at high altitude which in itself creates its own challenges such as lack of oxygen, loss of appetite, less than optimal performance and slower recovery. All this already makes this a unique event that is definitely not for the weak or the faint hearted. And then it was decided that we should push the limits even more… Presenting: The Lesotho High Altitude Cycle Challenge 2016 Xtreme Edition!

2015 sees the 4th rendition of this amazing cycling event. This year we had the privilege of hosting 40 dedicated cyclists and a couple of “in the closet” cyclists disguised as back up team.

What makes this cycle challenge unique is the fact that it takes place at extremely high altitudes, the highest point above sea level on route being 11 000 feet, effecting not only performance levels due to lack of oxygen but also recovery time and dehydration rates. As always, extremely steep gradients, poor road conditions and constant temperature variations took their toll on body and mind, but the awe-inspiriting beauty of the Lesotho landscape rewards perseverance time and time again!
