I watched the video that I posted and you can’t even tell that the elevation changes that much. Curves look like nothing as well. Dragon videos look the same. Most of the feel of the ride gets lost.
When you’re there in person, different story. I’ve heard several stories of guys who won’t even ride some of these roads because it makes them so uncomfortable. I think Grant was telling the story of a guy who was so freaked out on 129 that he just froze up somewhere in the middle of it and couldn’t move at all.
+1. Nothin like being there. I'd love to ride devil's whip. Probably the closest thing I've been to that is old Hwy 9 to Santa Cruz, ca
