Another candidate for top 20 world’s best biking roads. Desolate isolation, snow banks lining the road, frozen lakes. The road surface has deteriorated in parts, bumps in the braking zone on the descent into a tight hairpin bend, covered in water and goat poo, tricking the ABS into action, briefly releasing the brake and causing a few heart-stopping, "Not stopping!" moments, staring at a deadly, all be it scenic, two thousand foot plunge off the unguarded road into the Fjord.
