A bike path in Chile

Yikes! That's some downhill street course for a bike. I'm not sure I would even want to be a spectator standing in some of the parts of it much less the bike rider.

That reminds me... time for new brake pads on the old bicycle.

If you think its a bad downhill course imagine doing it uphill.

I kept trying to look up under the top edge of the video to see what was up ahead. No luck. Those jumps just came out of nowhere.

Hehehe.. I found myself doing the same thing -- tilting my head back to try to see further down the course.

Knuck raises a good point, peddling up the hill would be worse. Going downhill I would make it 20 feet or so before smacking into a wall and doing myself no more damage than a broken bone or two, but if I tried to peddle uphill I would keel over from a heart attack before too long.
