first off sorry if this is in the wrong forum!

Has anyone ridden it? im off to south america travelling for three months on monday and will be going through bolivia while im over there. apparently its home to the most dangerous road in the world, and you can hire bikes and ride it?! I'm pretty knew to this mtb lark, and better at falling off than anything else! was just wondering if anyone has ridden it to give me an idea of how gnarly it is and what nick the hire bikes are in? i don't want to leave my girlfriend to have to ship home my mangled corpse!
