Try not to lean to the left as you watch.

SOMETIMES I LIE TO MYSELF, thinking I’m a hardcore mountain biker. Then, I watch something like this.

This trail is part of a four-mile walking path that clings to the wall of the Garnitzen Gorge, Austria.

I’ve been on my share of cliff-edge trails in Moab and Grand Junction. Just a few moments of high, cliff-edge exposure turned my nerves into a jittering mess resembling a espresso-fueled chihuahua.

Fun for the first thirty seconds, but almost five minutes of tight corners, steering wide so your rear wheel doesn’t fall into the abyss? I think I’ll just watch the video, thanks.
