Peruvian madness

zerega reports: [edited]

In Perú from Huánuco to Tingo Maria, where the road from the Pacific coast across the Andes finds its way towards the Amazon lowlands, near the top of the last mountain pass. From there, soapbox rider can enjoy a vertical 1000 meters of gravity-assisted ride.

As these kids help stranded truck drivers along the road, they're called bomberos (firemen). They transport drinks, food and spare parts.

ZU from Perú adds:

"I use that highway to get to work, I saw a lot of those children. They have had many fatal accidents.
