Biking Bolivia’s Death Road

If you’ve ever traveled off the beaten path, you’ve probably come across some pretty abysmal roads. The very worst tend to be in third world countries populated with mountain ranges. Often, the roads here are nothing more than a sliver cut into the mountainside with no pavement or guard rails.

The above video captures such a road: Bolivia’s Death Road–a stretch of highway (and I use that term loosely) that travels between La Cumbre (4700m) and Coroico (1200m). And in this case, it is traveled on mountain bike! Take a few moments to check this out and you’ll never complain about the potholes on your morning commute again.
