Climbing for Qhubeka: Everesting Old Howick Road, 20 September 2014
On 20 September 2014, Kevin Benkenstein attempted and achieved an Everesting fundraiser for Qhubeka when he rode Old Howick Road in Pietermaritzburg (PMB), KwaZulu-Natal 17 times. Everesting is when a cyclist chooses a hill of his / her choice and rides it repeatedly in a single ride until ascending the equivalent height of Mt. Everest above sea level – 8,848m. Kevin has raised far more than the amount he was originally hoping to raise for Qhubeka, and here he shares his thoughts on the ride, the support he received and what he learned.
