    Cycling the Highest Road in the WORLD @ 18,380 feet

    Hi Folks,

    I am Manasij Ganguli, an avid mountain biker from India.

    I have been biking in the magnificent Himalayas for quite some time now.

    In my quest to ride up to interesting places, I have cycled up to the highest road on planet Earth, the legendary KhardungLa pass which is at 18,380 feet!

    I am new to this forum and I would be very happy to get your views!

    Cheers,
    Manasij

    Yeah, but can you do it on a single speed?
