If you ride a bike, you have undoubtedly conquered some personal goals. For some, it’s that pursuit of finding your perceived limits and pushing past them that keeps the pedals turning. After riding a Boris bike up Mt. Ventoux (above), it was time for Rob Holden to find a new challenge. That challenge? Riding our Boris bike equivalent, the Citibike up the side of the 6,288ft Mount Washington in New Hampshire.

Not hard enough? Now imagine trying to do the same task, but also fly from London, UK and back, all within 36 hours. Did Rob make it? Follow along with Airspace Media after the jump…

Outstanding. I think they should have a city bike category for the next hill climb.

They could have biked one up in Boston. Much shorter drive.

Betteridge’s law of headlines in effect.

Awesome. Would be nice if Mt. Washington was more accessible to cyclists outside of the two hill climb events each year.

I’ve raced Mt. Washington before. There is no way I’d want to try it on that bike! That last 22% grade stretch at the finish is brutal.
