The bicycle repair station IBOMBO has been installed by the team united-cyclists.com in the village Manang 3540 m.a.s.l. (Nepal). It is the highest point in the world, where a repair station has been mounted! A partner of “IBOMBO in the Himalayas” was also a company that produces bicycle accessories – SKS Germany.
IBOMBO PRS-SV1 is next to the best hotel in town – Hotel Yeti. It is an important point on the trail of the Annapurna Circuit, the most beautiful wandering path in the world – around the highest mountains Annapurna 8091 m.a.s.l. and Gangapurna 7455 m.a.s.l. The station will serve the local community, as well as cyclists, who want to confront with the Annapurna Circuit (including Thorong La Pass 5416 m above sea level). On this route the hardcore bike race Yak Attack is organized once a year. All participants then sleep in Hotel Yeti!
Supply and installation of the station by UC was a logistical challenge – we are full of admiration for Jack, who was the mastermind of the whole operation. It turns out, that there are no impossible things for UC. We admire You, guys. Chapeaux bas!
