Crazy not in a good way.

Not my idea of fun...would like to ride it though!


This is some rather less death defying but nevertheless awesome purpose built singletrack here in Tasmania. 12.5km of it (there's a few bits missed out, most of the climbing really). Its about 35 minutes if you ride it in the direction of the falling gradient, couple of hours gentle climbing and traversing the other way (and still fun), about 500m vertical drop in the descending direction.

Wow utter madness I hate those 'bridges' especially the one that looks like you have to jump off sideways at the end :shock:

I'd ride most, if not all, of that - and that very wide-angle GoPro footage always makes things look more extreme than they really are.
As above, no particuar skills, just confidence.
