You won't believe your eyes once you're there. Mountains upon mountains, cliffs as deep as hell itself. It's the most awesome bike tour that I've ever taken. Have you done it yet?

This place needs to be seen to be believed. Firstly it's scary to think this was a dual lane road way. Once you get over that you will notice how beautiful it is. We didn't start with the traditional Tarmac start at 4700m because it...More

Great experience and great to complete it safely!! We could easily see how accidents happen but once you are comfortable and go at your own pace all will be fine. Incredible views and overall incredible experience

Cycled here recently with Gravity. Was worth it! Great deal of fun and was easy (especially considering that I haven't done this sort of biking before).

Amazing scenery- truly terrifying to think that this was a main highway! Stunning - worth a visit, if you are young then bike it otherwise 4WD.

Good question re your "kids", but how old are they? The descent is steep and the rough road adds to the danger.There are no guard rails! As an elementary teacher 35 years experience, I would be very hesitant about taking... More

No worries! It's easy for anybody in good health-and it's all down hill.The only dangers would be looking at the scenery rather than at the road-there is no safety barrier and the fall would be fatal.Hitting a rock on the... More
