There are very few ways better to explore a place, than on a bicycle. Calibre explores some of the world’s most epic cycling routes.

Death Road, Bolivia

You’ll be riding on the edge, literally. The Death Road in Bolivia is a 40-mile (64.4km) route stretches from La Paz and Coroico. You’ll be heading downhill, round hairpin bends and sharp turns. A moment’s folly may have you plunging 600-feet down into the bottom of the canyon. The Amazonian panorama is well worth the risk, according to those who have conquered this route.

Ho Chi Min to Hanoi, Vietnam

This route is probably made popular by the motoring show, Top Gear. The hosts rode their motorbikes over 1,000 miles across the country between the two cities. One of the route’s highlights is the Hai Van pass, located in central Vietnam. You’ll be riding amidst clouds, with the South China Sea as your backdrop. Top Gear’s Jeremy Clarkson described it as one of the best coastal roads, in, the, world.
