Video: Insane Cyclist Rides Bike Down Mountain Road – Backwards!

And now something from the “completely insane” category. Here’s a video of a man riding his bike backwards down a road in Trollstigen, Norway. The road is 4.5 km (2.8 miles) in length and features a 10% grade. At times, the rider reached speeds in excess of 80 km/h (50 mph), which seems frightening when you’re riding a bike the proper way. Don’t try this at home kids.
