Yasas speaking with Andy on cycling , climbing mindset and life during Everesting Sri Lanka in 2019 . An event by GoCeilao and organized by Spinner Epic Cycling Events
Climbing is a mediation and the reward is a downhill, a reminder to the lesson that every up will have a down, just like in life. It's all about how you face it and take it. It's been a decade of climbing for some of us. We are glad to share what the paradise island of Sri Lanka has to offer to the world.
From now onwards let's call this Cycling Challenge: World's End 4XR #ClimbingCocktails. The event will happen on in the picturesque Central Hill Country of Sri Lanka , known as Nuwa- Eliya ,at 2000 meter altitude . This is the Head Quarters of #PureCeylonTea and is sprinkled with epic categorized climbs, without the snow caps of Alps, Pyrenees Leh & Ladakh, but with rays of sunshine and warm smiles of Sri Lankan hospitality . It's a haven for every cycling challenge-seeker and holday creater.
Life is a climb and I do it my way…
Every downhill I enjoy, is never given, but always earned. I can’t boil the ocean, but may be inspire one more. Every day I’m at the start line and I will rarely ask what the finish will be like. Today I will ride where most rarely dream of. What I will see and what I will do... sometimes only silence can explain...
what is world's end and
what is 4xr
World's End is situated at the edge of the highest motorable road of Sri Lanka and a world famous tourist attraction . It's located on Horton Plain. The plain's vegetation is grasslands blended with montane forest and includes many endemic woody plants . Large herds of Sri Lankan Sambre Deer is a feature as typical mammals. Hence the logo design. Don't be surprised to have a leopard sighting as the plains is home for three dozens of them .The park is also a bird lovers paradise with many species not only endemic to Sri Lanka but restricted to the Horton Plain. The 4 x R stems from the climbs starting with 'R' s, Ramboda , Radella, Rendapola leading to the town of Nuwara-Eliya . The Event will take the riders over 4000 meters of climbing spread over 180 kms , through the Rs to the World's End and back. At the end of each climb the riders come back to the Race HQ, which is an hotel , this gives chance recover , rejuvinate and go for the next R . This also means that the riders will meet their supporters for high fives , four times during the challenge . Supportes who are mostly family and friends either can drink tea , eat strawberries , read books ,take nap or go for a walk in the park till the riders come back from the hills. Also know as a Sri Lankan #CyclingHoliday
