A Burly Mountain Bike Ride to Start Your Day

Ireland’s Cliffs of Moher are generally considered to be one of the world’s scariest mountain bike rides, and with exposure measured in the hundreds of feet, the pucker factor is considerable. (Check out Hans Rey riding it here.) But this gorge in Austria, while not as sheer, is longer, narrower, and just about as penalizing if high side a pedal and drop a wheel off the trail.

And yes, it’s okay to wipe sweaty palms on your pants.

And thanks, Nick, I saw this video prior to posting and after your mention decided to add it. The riders don’t flow as well, but the res is higher quality so you can see the details better. Tx.
