Brave?

The older I get, the less I associate “bravery” with “recklessly risking your life.”

I wish this would play in my area. Probably needs a big theatre screen for the full effect.

Hmm. Different strokes, etc., I guess.

I’d just as soon not buy a ticket and support that kind of “bravery.”

So, so much NOPE.

I do a lot of cycling and some mountain biking, but i would never even attempt it, i simply do not have the control of balance to try that. I’d clip the cliff with a handlebar and fall off the drop on the other side within a few hundred meters :stuck_out_tongue:

Damn beautiful scenery though, i’d love to go walking down it :slight_smile:

I think this is the phrase you are looking for:

“Who’s the more foolish, the fool biking down a cliff, or the fool biking just behind him with a camera glued to his head?”

I admire the skill, but that’s a whole lotta nope for me. I enjoy having my head attached to my neck.

Is the path usually used by cyclists or hikers?
I was waiting for an encounter with traffic coming the other way in 3…2…1…
Reminds me of films of the ‘Road of Death’ in …Bolivia?

That wasn’t the same cyclist from start to finish. I think they went through four, maybe five.

No, in cycling it is the older I get the faster I was.
But back on topic, man that looks like fun.

I’ve seen NYC bike messengers take bigger risks.

The odd thing is, I’ve been on mountain “roads” that were maybe a foot or so wider with my motorbike and it was fun.

I find this stupid. What if they meet someone walking in the other direction? What is the walker supposed to do? Step off the path?

I was mostly OK with it until near the end where he goes off the path, and then I was like “nope.”

This one freaked me out more, especially the bit at 0:30 :
