Roadtripping Everest

My work in the cycling industry seems to have gotten about as good as it will ever be. I have no clue where to go from here after working in the Himalayas on the slopes of Mt Everest. How am I supposed to feel fulfilled on future jobs if they don't involve a trip to Tibet? Thanks a lot, CyclingTips. 

Check out the video above and the full article on CyclingTips. It was an amazing trip and I feel truly lucky to have been involved. Please enjoy a few photos from the trip by the amazing Tim Bardsley-Smith.
