THAT IS SICK!!

I know how wide angle cameras can make things not look at steep as they really are, so I can only imagine how insane that trail really is in person. Wow!

No biggie, just wear a parachute and call it B.A.S.E.S jumping. You know, Buildings, Antennas, Spans, Earth, and Single track.

Ligurian Border Ridge Road. It's a former military road, some 60km long, on the border between France and Italy at the extreme southwestern tip of the Alps.
Apparently you can ride it through - so, no need to turn around.

I understand it is popular with mountain bikers and jeeps, but I never knew that it had such narrow sections. Wow. Wow!

Cheers

Am I the only one here who would be all over that? On a small, lightweight bike that would be a blast to ride. But I think I'd spend more time taking in the views than riding!

Wow. That Ligurische Grenzkammstrasse looks so narrow that to turn around, you'd have to disassemble the bike and reassemble it facing the other direction.


Those guys are way more confident than me.
