THE STORY:

I can't sit back and keep seeing the cruelty and murder in Taiji, Japan where thousands of dolphins are killed and captured for captivity every year. Following on from my Cycle Challenge in Japan in 2015, I'll be concentrating my endurance challenge on the biggest mountain in Japan; Mount Fuji. Over 11 days, I'll attempt to cycle up as far as possible every day to set a new world record. This will total 25-30 ascents by bike. On two days I'll ride up to the 5th station and climb to the summit on foot. This will be out of season with no support. I'll cover 1,770km in 11 days and climb 155,000 ft in that time. Mt Fuji is notorious for it's extreme weather conditions, with temperatures plummeting to -10 wind chill even in the summer. There is 70% less oxygen at the summit with 25 degrees difference to the foot of the mountain. I'll traverse over 1,000 switchbacks as I make my way up and down the climb 25-30 times, having to carry all my kit with me in preparation for extreme wind, rain, fog and often sub-zero temperatures. I hope to raise awareness in Japan and around the world to help put a stop to the Dolphin hunts in Taiji. Please donate what you can, share with your friends and give me the motivation to complete this challenge.
