Enjoy the view!






"The dangerous part about riding the ledge was not to ride too close to the hillside, since we didn't want to catch a pedal on the rocks and high-side down the cliffs."
Hans Rey-Swiss trials rider and multiple World Champion

These photos were taken on Ireland's legendary Cliffs of Mohan and I'm sure you may have seen them before. I was speechless when I saw them...my palms are still sweating just thinking about riding up there!

Stay tuned...next week is my birthday...which I don't celebrate anymore...and I'm having a giveaway!!

Wow! I wonder how many people have fallen off that cliff? I would think walking it would be bad enough, let alone riding a bike on it.

OMG, not in this lifetime! Some people are just crazy. Beautiful scenery though. But I'll enjoy it from the safety of my desk chair.

Audrey said...

WHOA! I had not seen those before - they are awesome! They remind me of another shoot that was done, I think, at Macchu Pichu were hikers were walking on thin wires, thousands of feet in the air! Awesome! I wish that I had that kind of courage and faith!

Happy Birthday early! Can't wait to see the give away!

Well now, there's an adrenaline rush, I'm sure. But I don't think I was EVER young enough to even consider such an endeavor. Me & my little blue Schwinn, we stayed in the neighborhood.
