EARN YOUR STRIPE
This stripe signifies Hells 500 riders who have completed either an Everesting, or have notched up more than 10,000 vertical meters in a ride to enter the High Rouleur’s Society. Either way it’s bloody tough. They have put their blood, sweat, and tears into that sucka. When you see the grey stripe out on the road you know you are looking at one hard bastard.
Whether you have just smashed out an Everesting, are planning one, are part of the support crew or just a fan, we have swag for everyone and we love to see you in our gear.
Hells 500 are the creators and custodians of the everesting concept. It’s a fiendishly simple concept, and a fiendishly difficult ride to complete. Pick any climb, anywhere in the world and ride repeat after grinding repeat until you have notched up 8,848m vert. In one ride. All the kids are talking about it these days.
HIGH ROULEUR’S SOCIETY.
The concept of entry to High Rouleur’s Society is simple. Pick any route, loop, or combination of roads and ride until you reach 10,000 vertical metres (32,809 feet). There are two ways you can rack up your 10,000m vert for your entry into the High Rouleur’s Society.
The Limit: One single unbroken ride of more than 10,000m vertical. No time restriction, no distance requirement, no sleep allowed. This approach is all about finding the boundaries of what is possible in a single ride.
The Journey: More than 10,000m vertical in less than 36 hours, with a minimum of 400km. Sleep is allowed (while the clock is ticking), and in fact it should form part of your strategy! This approach is all about the joy of plotting something epic and unusual. With the ability to start the two days in different locations you should be getting creative with what can be achieved.
