This summer we are organising a bike ride in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales National Park. The challenge is to climb the equivalent height of Mount Everest from base camp on a bike – circa 3,400m – to raise much needed funds to improve healthcare in rural Nepal.
All our doctors, medical and nursing students come from the remotest villages high up in the Himalayas, so this ride will be the perfect way to raise much-needed funds to improve healthcare in rural Nepal. The route will be two big loops setting out each morning from Hawes. The rides have been chosen for road quality, scenic beauty, rideability and simplicity of directions. This is not an easy ride the North Face ride is 95km with an ascent of 1,710m, and the South Face ride is 125km with an ascent of 1,660m. It is challenging in places with steep ramps and the amount of climbing involved means that the cycling will be long, hard and will require stamina.
But just imagine what it’s like for people such as our doctors and students, living in the remote villages in Nepal. Sometimes they have to walk for 9 days to reach their nearest health-post, and it’s not guaranteed there will be a doctor there to treat them. They then must walk 9 days to get home again once treated.
