Some great mountaineering-cycling stories

I was surprised by how many of this centuries great mountaineers rode their bikes to into the mountains:

Great article, thanks!

bike touring to do a few days of a little light ski mountaineering at mount rainier national park....

actually skied with bike!

The current top dog bike touring/mountaineering hard man, presently, is a fella I knew years ago, Erden Eruc.

Erden in currently in a decade long Around-n-over adventure around the world, climbing peaks by human power. he rode his bike from seattle to Denali with his gear (no small feat in itself!) climbed Denali, and returned to Seattle by bike. he is now out on more exciting legs of his adventure.





Around and over, a human powered adventure



Erden was a Seattle friend of Goran Kropp, with him climbing the day of his fall, and inspired by Goran to follow in his wheel tracks to ride and row and go by human power to some of the highest summits in the world.
