7 November 2020: Cycling up the Taronga Zoo Hill in Sydney 120+ times in one day in order to reach a total elevation of 8848 meters, the equivalent height of Mount Everest.

The funds raised through this campaign will be used to buy basic food baskets for families in Brazil impacted by COVID-19. Being born in Brazil, and now living in Australia, I am especially conscious of the hardship being faced by so many Brazilian families right now. Thank you to my riding partner Naran McClung, who is both doing the ride and fundraising for Brazil. Our goal is to raise $2,200 to buy 100 basic food baskets and help 100 families to get through this moment. If we go beyond this target, more families will have food on the table! 

The food will be donated to a non-profit organization that serves children and teenagers who are socially vulnerable - residents of the City of God favela in Rio de Janeiro. See attached details of the project ( it is in Portuguese, so you may need to use Google translator to read the document)

My friend Marcio Villar, who is a national legend in ultramarathons and always involved in charity projects, will receive the baskets and deliver them to the NGO.

I will place the order myself. Each basic food basket costs around AUD$22,00, so any amount makes an impact!

Reaching the height of Mount Everest is called 'Everesting' in cycling terms, and the concept is fiendishly simple: pick any hill, anywhere in the world and ride repeats of it in a single activity until one climbs 8,848m – the equivalent height of Mt Everest. We estimate that the total distance will be 300km+ and it may take more than 18 hours. It will be the hardest single day ride of our lives. We will double our longest rides ever in both duration and elevation if I make it to the end! Hopefully all the training with our friends from the Bondi Running and Triathlon Club (BRAT) over the past many years pays off!

I hope you can help!

Thank you,

Ricardo Medeiros

Yesterday we reached the donation target, which will enable us to deliver 100 basic food baskets, just incredible! Thank you, everyone, who donated. The NFP helps 150 families who are suffering a lot economically due to COVID. I've decided to increase the goal to help everyone! One basic food basket costs $22, so we are now aiming for $3,300. Let's go and help everyone get through this hard moment!
