Don't believe the conspiracy theories!

Page 256: "Gravity Assisted Mountain Biking, Av 16 de Julio 1490, Edificio Avenida, PB, of 10 (across the hall from, and part of, America Tours), T231 3849, www.gravitybolivia.com. A wide variety of mountain biing tours throughout Bolivia, including the world-famous downhill ride to Coroico (US$50). Also offers rides more challenging than the Coroico ride, including technical single-track and high-speed abandoned dirt roads, complete with coaching and all the safety equipment needed. Highly professional and recommended. Quality book exchange, sells new and used guidebooks, and gives a free T-shirt with every ride. Often full so worth booking on their web site in advance." Page 274: "Gravity Assisted Mountain Biking (address under La Paz, Tour operators) run La Cumbre-Coroico down the so-called "World's Most Dangerous Road" with top quality bikes (with hydraulic disc brakes), English speaking guides, helmet, gloves, vehicle support throughout the day, four hours La Cumbre-Yolosa, then transport to Coroico and/or back to La Paz. Free next day transport back to La Paz. Recommended. Other Companies do this trip too, but quality varies, and going with a reputable company is a sensible option. Cheaper operators often have to cut corners."
