I was watching the boob tube yesterday and I encountered a show that featured a report of a 40 mile downhill. The catch? It is in Bolivia. It is dubbed the ‘Death Road’ because of how many people have died transversing the road. Here’s a little excerpt from the touring company the reporter dude used:
# Incredible scenic variety and a spectacular descent of more than 3,600m/11,800 feet, from snow-covered high-altitude plains and mountain ranges down to the steaming Amazonian Jungle. Part of the ride is on the dramatic and scenic “World’s Most Dangerous Road,” dubbed such by the Inter-American Development Bank in 1995.
# 64kms (40 miles) of downhill riding with only a few small uphills and a couple of flat bits!

Just one more thing to put on my “Bucket List”
