On June 12, 2020, Frank Torres Jr., aka “Fast Frankie,” rode up Round Mountain Road 42 times, totaling 221 miles and 29,111 feet of elevation gain to complete the Everesting challenge, which tasks cyclists with riding a climb repeatedly until the total elevation of Mount Everest (29,029 feet) is achieved. It’s the latest accomplishment for Torres, who’s turned his life around over the past three years. And it all started with a bike.
