"Because it's there!"

George Mallory, March 18, 1923

Mallorys answer to the question why he wants to climb Mount Everest. I will never get up that high, but I agree that climbing mountains by foot or by bike does not need a special reason. I do it for the pure fun of it. Sometimes it might be hard or exhausting, but to climb the last meters to the top of a mountain or a pass are worth all the efforts.

Try it and enjoy!.
