Challenge Complete – Maggie’s Everesting Cycle

After 21 gruelling hours, Ab Woolass crossed the line and completed the Maggie’s Everest Cycle Challenge on 6 June 2021.

Ab Woolass, who provides auditing services for the UK Asbestos Training Association (UKATA) embarked on the tough challenge to support and raise money for Maggie’s Centres. Maggie’s is a charity providing free cancer support and information in centres across the UK and online. They offer the best possible support free to anyone with cancer and their families who walk through their doors. The centres can be found alongside NHS hospitals, and they can also support individuals online.

The Everest Cycle Challenge took Ab 102 miles uphill in Oxfordshire... The challenge started at 1:00am on 6 June and Ab crossed the finish line at 10:59pm the same day. This amazing feat has put Ab in the Everesting Hall of Fame.

After completing the challenge, Ab said “I did it – I completed the Everest Challenge – that was so much hard work both physically and mentally.

I am of 1 of 7700 worldwide to ever complete the Everest Challenge and 1 of 1440 worldwide to complete the challenge in under 24 hours.”

Ab continues to fundraise whilst cycling, having amassed over £1200 to date.
