FORGET CYCLING DOWN BOLIVIA’S DEATH ROAD: BIKING DOWN PICHU PICHU VOLCANO IN PERU IS THE REAL TEST | Independent

Must Read

Bolivia’s Camino a los Yungas, between La Paz and Coroico, is well-known as “Death Road”. But when Elijah Solidum did the backpacker thing and mountain-biked down this famously lethal 65km stretch, he found himself still yearning for an adrenaline rush. So then he biked down a volcano.

It was a week after his Death Road experience that Solidum went one better with a ride down the slopes of Pichu Pichu, in the Peruvian Andes. “It was even scarier than Death Road because at least there the tour agencies have the best bikes and equipment,” he told The Independent.

“In Peru, this guy drove me halfway up a volcano, and gave me a bike I swear was about to fall apart.” To be fair, the guy did also provide him with a helmet.
