Biking is fun. Dying is not.
If you find yourself liking both then it’s time you take a look at Gravity Bolivia. A gravity assisted mountain biking excursion on the world’s most dangerous road. Almost sounds like a couch-potato-thrillseeker’s dream come true.
Hop on a Kona mountain bike with Hayes hydraulic disc brakes and Marzocchi front suspensions in addition to what roughly looks like a miner’s outfit and hit the road, if you can call it that. It looks more like a poor excuse for a backpacking trail. If you feel like reading more about it, BBC had a fantastic article on the journey.
Gravity Bolivia has 1, multiple-day and 1+ week rides. Spanning from single tracks to explorations of Bolivia, Chile and/or Peru. Sign up quickly though, we’ve read they will be paving the “road” soon. There’s a look at part of the trail you might encounter after the jump.
What this means to you: A two-wheeled masochists dream come true. Sign me up.
Cost: $55-$99 @ Gravity Bolivia
