It was such a great day riding down death road. Unforgettable. The views are incredible and it's a good adrenaline rush seeing the drop off on the side of the road. I had heard good things about Gravity and decided to go with them. I definitely don't regret this choice. The bikes and equipment seemed almost new and were in great condition. Our guide, Marcos, always made us feel calm and relaxed and gave a good a good talk with safety instructions before kicking it off. The main thing to stress about Gravity is their emphasis on safety. After traveling around Bolivia for many months, you hear stories, and things happen, but the simple guidelines that Gravity stresses to keep the riders safe make a huge difference. Mainly, I knew I could trust the other riders in my group. The only time I felt unsafe was when a different group passed us, and the riders were passing with several people riding side by side. Not smart. And I'm glad I wasn't with this group.
Overall, it was soooo much fun, we had a nice relaxing lunch at the animal refuge, had a great time with the others in my group, and then an unforgettable ride back up death road on the way back to La Paz. ;)
