Beaconhills College staff member Fiona O’Callaghan has just become one of a handful of female cyclists to complete the gruelling 7 Peaks.
The road cycling challenge traverses hundreds of km of cycling terrain, climbing the mountains of Baw Baw, Buffalo, Buller, Falls Creek, Lake Mountain and Hotham, as well as Dinner Plain.
While participants can complete the peaks anytime from 27 October to 29 April, Fiona faced an extra challenge to overcome. Just before tackling the final Mt Hotham peak earlier this year, she suffered a collapsed lung following a routine medical treatment. However, last weekend she realised her goal, despite not yet regaining her previous level of fitness.
Fiona said the toughest challenge was Mt Baw Baw, renowned for its steep gradient (20 per cent in parts): “Baw Baw is number one in Australia for difficulty in road cycling”.
A keen member of the local Cardinia Climbers cycling group, Fiona only took up the sport two years ago. She works as a Graphic Designer in the Beaconhills’ marketing team (no jokes about spin!).
Her next challenges include the back of Falls Creek and Mt Donna Buang in the Victorian Alps.
