Dylan Nord, one of the men behind riding club Deux North recently sent us a recap of their latest road tripping Hunt series adventure. We’ve seen them get into road rallying in Spain and take on a dirty 300 miles of road in California in their last two trips. For trip #6 they headed into the San Gabriel Mountains east of LA to give an attempt at something like Everesting. That would mean 29,029ft of climbing (8,848m), but instead of sticking to one climb they wanted to get a chance to ride up Mt. Baldy and some surrounding passes. In the end their small group put in more than 25 hours of riding and 220+ miles in the SoCal hills. Hop past the break to see how much climbing they squeezed in and how they survived it…


So it seems they overshot it a bit. Starting at 3pm, the group of 6 rode through the evening into the night. Cold, wet & windy weather through the night and into the morning made them overwork just to stay warm enough to survive, then continued foul weather rerouted the group to doing hill repeats at lower elevation and closer to town to finish it all out.

After 24 hours had elapsed they needed maybe one more of their hill repeats, but it seems that everyone was delirious enough that it wasn’t clear how much they had really climbed, so they kept going and still put in 9 more of that 1 mile hill repeats. In the end Dylan tallied 19 hours & 20 minutes of riding over the course of 25 1/2 hours and 222mi (357km) with 31,440ft (9583m) of elevation gain. Check out his ride on his Strava.
