Navigating the crest is not for the novice. Riders crush corners on a narrow two-lane highway with no shortage of debris from frequent rocky landslides. One miscalculation could send you over the cliffs or into the face of a mountain wall.

What you have there is what these girls called a Sunday afternoon.
