The guys from work said this would be an experience of a lifetime.
I wasn’t sure how it worked, but I was airlifted, with my bike, on to the top of the mountain. What a view! It was beautiful – the clouds were like a woollen blanket, protecting the fragile inhabitants beyond.
The most modern of bikes, there was no possibility of falling off. A new type of harness, using the magnetic field of the earth. I wasn’t nervous – perhaps I should have been.
It had long been on my bucket list – cycle down Mount Everest. Now my dream was a reality, I was ready for the adventure of a lifetime. One, two, three and with my eyes not ready to close I let gravity show me the way.
