A keen cyclist will be ‘cycling up Everest’ to raise money for the Wycombe Homeless Connection.

Helen Biggerstaff, who is the services manager at the charity, will use the indoor cycling app Zwift to ride up the world’s biggest mountain to help those without a home in the town.

Zwift is a bike training system that simulates the real experience of cycling outdoors, which will mean she will cycle over 201km, climbing 8850m of ascent in roughly 15 hours.

She will do the challenge on Saturday, July 25 and has so far raised £1,262, with her target being £2,000.

Helen said: “I know first-hand how hard our team works to help the most vulnerable rough sleepers and those who are at risk of eviction.

“It has been a very tough few months with the Covid-19 pandemic and we have worked tirelessly to get everyone accommodated.
