Daredevils Take A Terrifying Tricycle Ride Down The Steepest Street In The World
Apr 23, 2015
The three men recently tackled the steepest hill in the world, recognized as such by the Guinness Book of World Records. This hill is located on Baldwin Street in Dunedin, New Zealand. The street's slope is an overall 35 percent gradient, but it is rumored to have a gradient as high as 38 percent in some spots. The men estimate that they traveled at about 60 miles per hour down the hill.
The tricycle is a humble vehicle, often used by young children who are not yet capable of balancing on only two wheels. Well, it was a humble vehicle, until three men decided to turn the trike into a speeding, drifting machine. Tsyon Barr, Nic Roy and Harley Jolly, known as Slide Christchurch, used adult-sized tricycles to speed down steep hills and slide sideways on the trike's back tires.
