Video: Cycling the Steepest Road in the World

It isn’t widely known, but the town with the steepest road in the world is a place called Harlech in Wales. There, a narrow, twisting little climb known as Ffordd Pen Llech has moments where the grade is 36% or more, which is hard enough to walk up, let alone ride. That hasn’t stopped plenty of cyclist from giving it a go, including the boys in this video. They make the attempt with good fun and humor, with a few surprises along the way.
