Steepest Street in the World

The tricycle is the outcast of the bike world. Unicycles turn heads because they’re difficult to master, and penny-farthings are old-timey and hilarious. But ever since the advent of training wheels, there’s just no reason for the tricycle to exist.

That is, until some speed demons invented extreme drift triking, a recognized sport in New Zealand.

Three riders in Christchurch, New Zealand. filmed themselves flying down Baldwin Street, the steepest street in the world. The video’s warning about “serious injury, harm or death” might seem overblown until you see these dudes drifting and pulling off 360s at rubber-melting speeds on the hill

Baldwin Street, in Dunedin, New Zealand, is considered the world's steepest residential street. It is located in the residential suburb of North East Valley 2.2 miles northeast of Dunedin's city center.
